his widow tells cbs news he did what not a lot of people would do-- sacrificed, leaving home to help other people. also killed, vira hyrych, a ukrainian journalist who worked for a u.s.-funded radio free europe. she was killed when russian missiles struck her apartment building during yesterday's air strike on the capital. and this just in. nato forces say they've scrambled jets multiple times over the past four days to track and intercept russian aircraft getting close to alliance airspace over the baltic sea and the black sea. today, president zelenskyy announced the discovery of another mass grave on the outskirts of keefe. zelenskyy said more than 900 bodies will of civilians have been found around mass graves inspect capital. charlie d'agata starts us off from eastern ukraine. good evening, charlie. >> reporter: good evening, norah. we have learned that willy cancel was killed on monday while fighting alongside ukrainian forces. it's unclear how and where he died. his family hopes his body will
be found and returned back to the united states. he came to fight here and ended up giving his life, leaving behind their seven-month-old son. his widow brittney told cbs news today. >> he just wanted to help people. he didn't go over there for money or any personal reason. he just-- he wants to help the innocent people of ukraine. that's all he wanted to do. >> reporter: news of his death comes as ukrainian forces face down a surge in fighting across the front lines in the south and east. this video from russian-backed separatists is said to show what's left of the luhansk village of popasna. a few miles to the north, we followed a volunteer headed into the ghost town of lyman. to evacuate the few residents still holding out under the bombardment. on the bus, tearful, frightened
families try to comfort one another as the reality of abandoning the security of their homes sinks in. like 69-year-old galia kyluk. may i ask you why you decided to leave now? "because there is very intense and heavy shelling," she said, "and it's now too dangerous to stay here." so dangerous, that putting her 87-year-old wheelchair-bound mother, lydia, through the stress of a long journey to an unknown destination was deemed the safer option. she leaves with little more than a change of clothes and her cat, dasha lying squarely in the russian line of advance, lyman is surrounded on three sides by russian forces. the nearby town of zarichne fell earlier this week, and lyman is expected to follow. the entire city is virtually deserted, and these are among the last residents to leave. explosions have been ringing out while we're here. and now it's time for us to
leave, too. a 20-minute sprint out of town takes the evacuees to a safer place, where buses are waiting to take them further west. with russian forces bearing down on their town, it's impossible to know whether they'll ever return home. now, as much as ukrainian forces are putting up a fight, they are losing ground in certain areas. but there's a sense that that town, the takeover of that town is inevitable. evacuations are also under way in kharkiv, outside of kharkiv, which has also come under sustained attacks. norah. >> o'donnell: charlie d'agata from ukraine, thank you. tonight, the central u.s. is bracing as severe weather moves in to the area, bringing with it strong thunderstorms. also at least one tornado has already been reported tonight. for the forecast let's bring in meteorologist mike bettes from our partners add the weather channel. good evening, mike. >> reporter: good evening, norah. the skies turn dangerous to start our weekend.
here is a lookality what the skies will look like over kansas city, missouri. hail and high winds possible. our exclusive gives us a seven out of 10, the higher the number, the higher of risk of tornadoes. a large area here through the plains we're anticipating very, very violent storms. there's the line across kansas city, coming through around midnight tonight, the whole storm system pushing east as we go into the weekend, so saturday we do it all again. chicago, indianapolis, jonesboro, arkansas, all threats on the table. once again to start our weekend here, norah. it's tornadoes. it's hail. and it's high winds. >> o'donnell: mike bettes, thanks so much. now to the stock market, which ended a brutal month with another massive sell-off. the dow fell more than 900 points on the day, down more than 6% in april. the s&p 500 was up more than 155 points today, while the nasdaq sank more than 500, suffering its worse month since the great recession of 2008. amazon stock fell more than 14%
today, wiping more than $20 billion from jeff bezos' net worth, according to "forbes." okay, today, there's big news in the political battle over abortion rights. oklahoma joined a growing list of states to pass laws that ban nearly all of the procedures. and it comes just weeks before we learn the fate of the supreme court's landmark "roe v wade" decision. here's cbs' janet shamlian. >> reporter: tonight, two restrictive oklahoma abortion bills could soon become law, one banning the procedure as early as six weeks, or just after signs of cardiac activity. the other is a near-complete ban, except in cases of rape, incest, or if the woman's life is in danger. both bills sailing through the state legislature. >> we are trying to save the life of preborn babies, period. >> this bill is incredibly intrusive, and it's just plain wrong. >> reporter: the bills are modeled after a texas law empowering the public to report and sue anyone who performs an abortion or helps a woman get
one. they could become law immediately after they hit republican governor kevin kevin stitt's desk early next week. >> let me go ahead and sign this bill. >> reporter: he signed a similar bill earlier this month set to take effect in august. >> we want oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country. >> keep your hands off our bodies! >> reporter: the flurry of oklahoma legislation comes amid a state-by-state shodown over abortion access as the nation waits an expected june supreme court decision on a mississippi law that could effectively overturn "roe v wade." what does this mean for women nationwide? >> if states are allowed to ban abortion, we estimate that 26 states are certain or likely to do just that, ban abortion. and that would affect 36 million women of reproductive age. >> reporter: when texas passed its law, women seek abortions started going to neighboring
states, including oklahoma. by next week, oklahoma may no longer be an option. norah. >> o'donnell: janet shamlian for us, thank you. well, there's important news tonight for the parents of millions of young children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated against covid. the f.d.a. said today its advisory committee will hold three meetings starting june 8 to discuss authorizing shots for children under five. that's 18 million kids that have still not eligible and the earliest possible authorization would be in late june. all right, tonight, a fascinating story overseas. china is refusing to loosen the grip of its strict zero covid control policies as its worst outbreak in two years impacts the capital city of beijing. malls, and other businesses were shut down today. lockdowns across china are hitting international businesses hard with labor shortages and supply chain breakdowns. here's cbs' elizabeth palmer. >> reporter: almost all of beijing's 21 million residents were ordered to take covid tests this week, not just one, three
each. the goal is to avoid the kind of sweeping lockdown that shut shanghai for more than a month. and last night had furious residents on their balconies banging pots and pans in protest. in beijing, a growing number of areas are in mini-lockdown with barricades around buildings with covid cases, but most people are free, as long as they test negative. there was one... since then, authorities have made sure grocery stores stayed well stocked and promised that there is and would be plenty of food. even as mass testing showed the number of covid cases, while still low, was climbing. what do you expect? is this just the prelude to a lockdown? michael hart is president of the american chamber of commerce in
china. >> that's the great question. i fear that we will have to move to a lockdown. i certainly hope that that's not the case. a number of people in beijing thought beijing was immune. i don't think covid discriminates. >> reporter: u.s. businesses in china are already struggling with labor shortages and broken supply lines. a beijing lockdown would be a serious blow. already, there are economic repercussions. companies, including apple, are warning that china's lockdowns are going to cost billions of dollars. norah. >> o'donnell: elizabeth palmer, thank you. a manhattan judge today refused to lift the $10,000-per-day fine against donald trump who remains in contempt of court for not handing over documents to the new york attorney general's office. lawyers for the former president told the court mr. trump doesn't think he has any of the documents in question. but the judge wasn't spied, and pressed for a better explanation. okay, back here in washington, congress' youngest member, north carolina's madison cawthorn, is
facing a new slew of controversies and questions of misconduct. the freshman lawmaker's recent troubles include allegations of an improper relationship with a staffer. here is cbs' nikole killion. >> reporter: tonight, north carolina republican madison cawthorn defending himself in a new ad. >> i've never folded in washington, and i never will. >> reporter: after a complaint was filed by an opposition group with the office of congressional ethics. it alleges multiple violations by cawthorn and one of his house aides, claiming the congressman provided free housing and travel, loans and citing various social media postings that indicate a personalr nady. >> me, too. >> rt a coordinated assault. it's the latest in a string of scandals involving the 26-year-old lawmaker who was once considered a rising star in the republican party. >> take notes, madam speaker. >> reporter: earlier this week, police say he was stopped
with a loaded gun at a charlotte airport. the right-wing conservative has also been captured in racy photos, appearing to wear women's lawmpleg ray, and he's increasingly come under scrutiny from g.o.p. leaders for making claims about drug- and sex-fueled parties in washington. >> and you realize they're asking you to come to an orgy. >> reporter: and for political rhetoric like calling ukrainian president a thug. today, house speaker nancy pelosi kept her distance from the other side of the aisle. >> we have a responsibility to have an ethical standard here. they have to take care of their own house. >> reporter: north carolina's primary is may 17. cawthorn, who has been endorsed by former president trump, currently leads all seven of his republican challengers. although his poll numbers have dropped double digit within the last month. norah. >> o'donnell: nikole killion on the hill for us. thank you. well, more than two months since the war in ukraine began, the u.n.'s world food program says nearly half the country worries about where they'll find their
next meal. for this sunday's "60 minutes," cbs' scott pelley traveled to ukraine with the world food program's david beasley to follow the organization's efforts to curb the hunger crisis. >> how many people do you fear might be starving in this country? in odessa, we spoke with david beasley, the executive director of the u.n.'s world food program. >> you've got to assume that millions are at stake right now. we're reaching about two million already. we hope to scale up to four million in the weeks ahead and six million beyond that. it's going to be dependent upon two things-- money and access. >> reporter: but access has been cut off to the war's victims in the heavily besieged cities of eastern ukraine. >> we can't reach them. we're blocked. we can't get into the besieged cities like mariupol, mykolaiv, and kherson and i could go on and on. they have to be starving. >> o'donnell: well, you can watch scott pelley's full report
