very lost. of course, it's very big loss for the family. it happened just after 10 tuesday night at the store at columbus parkway in rows, dr vanessa police say they got an alarm call from the store. our officers responded two minutes later and when they got there they found the clerk inside. unresponsive suffering from a gunshot wound. surveillance videos from nearby businesses show the apparent gunman running away. police are reviewing these videos in canvassing the neighborhood in hopes of identifying the shooter. a woman could be heard crying at the crime scene and unusual sight in normally quiet, venetia. this is a relative, very safe community . this type of robberies and crimes are not common. indonesia saying was a familiar face to many in the city. we do take it personal. many of us knew the clerk and so all our resources are being used to solve this crime and bring this person to justice. helped out the community a lot. he helped me a lot. um, used to give me bags of food and sweets and stuff to
4:02 pm

4:03 pm
tasked with smoothing over that situation. meanwhile ukrainian authorities save more and more innocent people are being killed during the fighting. despite russia's claim it is not targeting civilians. the latest target was the children's hospital in a city currently under siege by russian forces as foxes, lauren blanchard tells us there are also serious concerns about safety at the chernobyl nuclear power plant. a new kind of safety concern in ukraine after authorities report that now decommissioned chernobyl nuclear plant has gone offline. russian troops have occupied the plant since last week, the site of a 1986 meltdown that became the largest nuclear disaster in history. emergency generators are supplying backup power. ukraine says a total loss of power would mean radiation leaks , while russia claims the plant does not pose a danger. there are no risks for civilians living in neighboring areas. meanwhile, russian forces continue their barrage of attacks on ukrainian cities, the latest target this children's
4:04 pm
hospital and maternity ward in marea paul, once colorful walls now torn apart and windows blown out ukraine's president, writing that there were quoted children under the wreckage this happening even as new ceasefires were agreed upon wednesday morning to allow civilians to escape. previous agreements have been derailed by attacks with ukraine and russia, blaming each other for breaching the peace. the humanitarian crisis is growing increasingly dire. er with ukrainians not only living in bomb shelters, but largely cut off from access to essentials like food, water and heat. more than two million have fled ukraine since the fighting began, half of them children, small children in your lap crying, yelling, they want to eat. they want to drink immediately. they don't understand the situation. most fleeing the violence have come here to poland, the united nations, calling it the fastest growing refugee crisis in europe. since world war two in poland. lauren blanchard, fox news well that situation in ukraine with the seemingly continued shelling of civilian
4:05 pm
targets shows no signs of letting up. joining us live this afternoon is u. c. berkeley political science professor stephen fish. professor i want to talk about some of these targets here, including that maternity and children's hospital in southern ukraine. aren't these bombings, war crimes? of course they are. but this is putin's way of making war. he's done this in syria, where russian russian air force has come to the rescue of bashar al assad's dictatorship. and participated very heavily in the destruction of aleppo. really leveling this, uh, large city. we saw it in chechnya in grozny , the capital of that, the provincial capital of grozny, as putin tried to bring that back under russian control, this kind of indiscriminate bombing or it looks in this case. like it was . it was targeted at a maternity hospitals just the way he does war, and they certainly are one worker crimes. okay so if we've seen it before we're seeing it now, do you expect to see more of it there in ukraine? yes, i do. he's clearly not conservative pr ish should be.
4:06 pm
this is a really stupid thing to do doesn't have to do this. but putin's way of thinking is that of an old style. kgb guy and not not the smartest one. he thinks you demoralize the population. you grind them down. you just roy, their ability to resist a psychologically by doing this, and he thinks that people can be ground down like this. ukrainians will not be ground down by this. it will just make them more angry. it'll mobilize more global support for their cause, of course. this makes the cause absolutely clear in moral terms as if it wasn't already right. but this war for is not in putin's putin's interest, but he pursues it anyway. okay now to helping with the military needs of ukraine and today as we reported the pentagon, essentially closing the door on any plans to provide fighter jets to ukraine, even through a secondary country. do you agree with us officials who called that potential move high risk? i can see why they would say it was high risk. on the other hand , they really need those jets. i think this is a judgment call. i
4:07 pm
think that it would be. it's one way or another. we really need to get those jets to them if they can't be done in a politically acceptable way, then we need to really double down on getting them their own anti aircraft. brown based missiles, javelin missiles, just throw tanks. ah stinger missiles to strike aircraft. we have to get as much of that weaponry and as we as we can, now what we still have, the chance would be great to get the airplanes. we'll see how that turns out. the pentagon, also raising concerns that the jets wouldn't make much difference that they wouldn't significantly changed the effectiveness of the ukrainian air force. it's possible it's possible military strategist would know that better than i do. if that's true in the right about that, then that's all the more reason why we shouldn't sweat this too much, and you just go on to what we actually can do. and we are moving a lot of lot of material in there. it is coming from multiple countries, and it's going to do them a great deal of good you mentioned, though, that ukraine desperately needs military help, so if a transfer of the jets isn't an option is there another way to provide the country with
4:08 pm
defensive weapons? yes i mean, we're getting other things in there. we can get the stinger missiles that are shoulder held missiles that actually take out aircraft in the air. we can get javelin anti tank missiles in those are very helpful for the ukrainians. on the ground, that kind of thing we can get in weapons, ammunition gun. lot of different things that i haven't even mentioned. so far. the flow of those of that material and ukraine is actually been pretty fast and pretty encouraging, but we need to do a lot more as soon as we can. okay when you take a look, though, and you take a step back and you look at what's happening. where do you expect this to go? let's say in the in the coming days and hopefully not, but potentially in the coming weeks. you know, has a big picture. this is just such an insane operation to begin with. so you know the whole idea that you could go into a country of 40 million people. all of whom were armed, and all of them will hate you. and somehow with 150,000 troops conquered this territory, occupy it to do the
4:09 pm
population and govern it indefinitely was total madness. the fact that this decision was taken shows the disadvantages of an autocracy where one guy calls all the shots and then checks on it. putin apparently was not even consulting with his top military people and his ministers over this. it was just his decision, so he stuck with his quagmire right now, this already untenable situation. i think putin would be willing to depopulate ukraine entirely, like killing everybody and sending everybody else into exile. if you could have that territory that's not going to happen. ukrainians won't let it happen. they're getting plenty of weaponry from us. putin's goal, of course, is to the next ukraine. that's an absolutely crazy goal right now. what i think we'll see is perhaps more atrocities we're going to see putin doubled out around this at the same time. this whole venture has been so insane to begin with, and the russian military is performed so badly on the ground recently. that i really think this does threatened putin's power. you've
4:10 pm
got to think about what the people around him the elites around him. think of this as military people is. oligarchs is his fellow government officials , his subordinates about this whole this whole venture. it's costing the fortunes it's costing their country's international reputation. it's forced russia into a relationship with china. russia basically becomes china's vassal because it has more relations with the west. this is all very bad for russia, and my hope is that the folks around him will stage a coup against him. and in order to, you know, extricate rush from this situation that remains to be seen whether that will happen, but it's much more possible than anybody ever would have thought before this war started. certainly the pressure is building on president putin will see though how he reacts. always a pleasure, stephen fish, thank you so much, which is all mine. well in washington, d c. the house last night approved $13 billion to help ukraine fanned off the russian invasion . it's part of a $1.5 trillion spending package. funding federal agencies for the rest of
4:11 pm
this year. congress faced a weekend deadline to approve the plan or face a government shutdown. this bipartisan legislation goes to the senate next. gas prices continue climbing while the biden administration looks for solution. i'm william longinus in los angeles. details coming up. and how the rise in overall fuel prices is expected to impact consumers and not just at the gas pump coming up. adding whether another day of full sunshine with lots of clear skies, but right now we are tracking some stronger winds coming up. we'll talk about a wind advisory that will soon go into effect. and now most admired alum! get up there. this is so embarrassing.
4:12 pm
there's no way it's me. you know her.... you love her.... ruh roh. what are you doing here? it's anna gomez! who? our first gigillionaire! with at&t fiber, anna's got the fastest internet with hyper-gig speeds. i didn't know you went to this school. we have a lot in common. live like a gigillionaire with at&t fiber. now with speeds up to 5-gigs. limited availability.
4:13 pm
production after banning russian oil imports, but as foxes william la jeunesse tells us republican lawmakers say there's still more than enough oil here. to make up that difference. gas
4:14 pm
prices, jumping eight cents overnight to another all time high of 4 25 a gallon oil analysts now expecting americans to pay as much as $2000 more and gasoline this year. it's just going up and up and it's going to keep going up. as for the cause, will president biden has blamed vladimir putin's invasion of ukraine, while the president's critics? are blaming his policies such as canceling the keystone xl pipeline. russia's build up of troops president putin's decision to do that very early this year led to a lot of the instability and volatility in the oil markets after banning russia oil imports the biden administration now looking elsewhere to increase production. but they're also facing some pushback, according to the wall street journal, saudi arabia and the united arab emirates declined the president's calls, while the white house disputes that republicans and some democrats are urging him to ramp up domestic production to increase supply and stabilize prices, it won't happen overnight. but we
4:15 pm
need to do it and we need to do it now, and we need to always remember the importance of being energy, independent state and local leaders are looking for other ways to ease the burden and can sumers. governor gavin newsom is proposing a gas tax rebate for californians who own a car. one thing we cannot do is repeat the mistakes of the past, drilling even more oil, which only leads to even more extreme weather, more extreme drought and more wildfire. according to gasbuddy, the nationwide average for a gallon of gas could eventually hit about $4.50 in los angeles. we emotion us fox news oil prices fell. 12% reports that the united arab emirates will urge opec members to boost production . that drop is the biggest since november and comes after climbing to nearly 13 year high. in the previous session, and while the white house plans to release tens of millions of barrels worth of oil from the country's strategic reserves, that move is not likely to have
4:16 pm
a major impact on our record high gas prices and already we are seeing the ripple effect hitting hard and many industries ktvu tom vacar has been tracking the prices and no doubt on the pain of the pump. is a big drag on the overall economy. it's oil prices, oil prices and we begin with airlines because airlines that price for jet fuel has surged to a 14 year high and may likely go up even more. everything tickets will grow not so much in base fares but in the form of fees added to the ticket airport fees could easily change based on the cost of fuel at that airport. they can also apply fuel surcharges. it currently costs $36,000 to fill a 7 37 airliner compared to 24,000 year ago. splitting that extra $12,000 over 140 seats. the airline must get another $85 per seat to make up for a
4:17 pm
tankful. so if you're on a two hour flight, that's an extra $10. 20 to 30 bucks going coast to coast. so the bigger the airplane. the worst problem gets , fedex ups and dhl have had fuel surcharges pre programmed into their rates for years. nonetheless fedex has already added war surcharges applying to international shipments, depending on the destination. that does not include increased fuel costs for their massive ground delivery fleets in the last year. overall air freight rates between asia and the west coast increased 196. 241% higher for the east coast truckers and trucking companies. that's an industry that wholesome 80% of all goods to market. they are stunned. the national price of diesel fuel went up about 75 cents. california a little bit less about 68 6, just in one week, increased fuel surcharges are unavoidable. fuel is our
4:18 pm
second biggest expense after you know. our employees. the labor ocean shippers by fuel, not by the gallon, but by the ton now, $1000 attempt up 84% from a year ago. these price levels are unprecedented container shippers have yet to impose fuel surcharges, but even though they are already under federal investigation for cartel like price spikes and collusion, they still could lot of the supply chains or so fragile right now. any other impact and, you know potential fuel shock. um just adds to the woes of anything that has to do with moving the goods. the more the chipping costs or the more that the other costs associated with that. get charged to consumers than that adds to inflation, and that is not good. reporting live. tom vacar ktvu fox tuning. okay, so tom, it's going to be another rollercoaster ride for us travelers as airfare climbs and
4:19 pm
may not come back down for several months. that's exactly right. imagine this now, while the fuel that they've had delivered right now may have been delivered today or this week. the fact is, it was probably paid for three or six months ago at a much lower price. the problem for the airports are that if they start don't raise their prices right now, then they'll have to jack way higher when that other fuel comes so they're trying to smooth things out, so it isn't quite so rough. so even though they bought this fuel too much lesser price it's going to be much, much harder to get that price back down, and they just want to make sure that there's a cushion there. and that's one of the reasons that airfares are actually likely to go up a little bit with surcharges. yep. whether we're driving or flying definitely going to cost a lot more, tom. thank you. well on wall street today, stocks rallied as oil prices fell sharply today, snapping a four day losing streak. the dow was up 653 points. the nasdaq was up 440. 459 excuse me in the s and p jumped 107 points. well and
4:20 pm

i've seen how cancer can affect the people i care about. that's why i'm helping protect myself against some cancers like certain cancers caused by hpv. for most people, hpv clears on its own. but for those who don't clear the virus hpv can lead to certain cancers in both women and men. gardasil 9 is the only vaccine that helps protect adults through age 45 against certain diseases caused by hpv, including cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and certain head and neck cancers, such as throat and back of mouth cancers, and genital warts. gardasil 9 doesn't protect everyone and does not treat cancer or hpv infection. your doctor may recommend screening for certain hpv-related cancers. women still need routine cervical cancer screenings. you shouldn't get gardasil 9 if you've had an allergic reaction to the vaccine, its ingredients, or are allergic to yeast. tell your doctor if you have a weakened immune system, are pregnant, or plan to be. the most common side effects include injection site reactions, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, tiredness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and sore throat.

and 17 when they learned that they were losing their lease. the humanitarian crisis in ukraine and its neighboring countries worsening by the day still ahead here on the four we're going to speak to the ceo of a nonprofit that has sent significant aid to that region. already also, the heartbreaking told that the war in ukraine is taking on adoptive parents here in the u. s will have crisis devn
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
neighboring countries, the united nations refugee agency
4:31 pm
estimates some two million people have already fled ukraine and they believe millions more could be forced to flee at least half of the refugees. our children. joining us now is thomas taek. he's the ceo of direct relief. it's a nonprofit that provides emergency medical and disaster relief here in the us and abroad as well. thomas. good to have you with us. thank you for having me. can you give our viewers an idea of the logistics involved in getting medicine and eight and countries are into a countries that are surrounded by that war torn ukraine. what's obviously changed a lot. we do a fair amount in ukraine on an ongoing basis, and it is big, completely upended as his words kicked in, but so far, i think there's been a secure channel through poland bonded trucks, the warehouse and we've been able to provide about 25 tons in about $10 million in little more than $10 million, with assistance as well as some financial assistance to
4:32 pm
ukrainian ngos that we've worked with for years. securely in confirming the receipt, but it is has to be escorted to the border very crowded as people are leaving. a lot of the staging is being done in poland as you see on tv, but i think the channel in so far as secure through the ministry of health, and that's good, but it's a very dynamic situation with, you know, active targeting of civilian populations. they've lost. dozens of hospitals, and today i maternal and child hospitals bombed, so it changes fast. it's a brutal situation and all of the past two weeks, so you know we were making the adjustments as necessary, and it's not dissimilar to some of what we're accustomed to natural disasters with a big difference being everyone is trying to open up. the compromise roads and channels after natural disaster , and here you have one side actually trying to shut them down. is that your biggest challenge? then if not, what is well, you know, it's the logistics are part of it, but i think is, uh, it's a dilemma. there's an urgent need to act and the information is
4:33 pm
incomplete, right? i mean, because it's shifting so drastically constantly. so we're getting. we're working with the world health organization on very specific things like making sure there's adequate supplies of insulin for the children and people with type one diabetes. without which still go into crisis rapidly, and that's the sort of thing directly is particularly suited to do so. i think the information the action is usually as good as the information available. the information is changing rapidly, so we're trying to stage as much as we can through poland and then take those clear shots in as soon as there's a clear shot to take into ukraine, but so far the ukrainian ministry of health has been it's heroic cause everyone else in the government really trying to maintain services. that and obviously huge humanitarian crisis unfolding on tv. half of the refugees are children. does that make it harder? does that complicate it for you? well you know, it's one of the challenges that there is a relatively low vaccination rate of 34% in ukraine in a relatively high
4:34 pm
incidence of cases right before the war broke out, so the good news is that the children are less prone to get really ill from covid, but it's a concern as they flee and crowded circumstances. that's one of the circumstances contextually that everyone's concerned about. so that's what we were doing in ukraine for the past six months, um, really helping bolster their their covid efforts with monoclonal, anybody's another treatments, so i think the fact that their children, they're resilient, but they're also fragile. it's freezing out there. i think the basics of food, water shelter and just the psychological disruption that they're going through is hard to imagine. um as you can see on tv. these are not things that are normal courses of events that we experience in life. so there's concern about what happens long term, but right now it's really a matter of getting to health and getting to a safe environment, making sure the services are there, so we ramped up everything we can and are fortunate that we've had this
4:35 pm
ongoing relationship with the ukrainian ministry of health that is really working heroically to do everything they can for their people. thomas tiger is the ceo of direct relief. thank you for your time and thank you for all your efforts. i know it's an impossible mission, but it sounds like you guys are getting it done. so thank you. thank you. well the war in ukraine has left many people caught in the crossfire, including children, as we just spoke about specifically those, though, in orphanages, foxes mills hayes shows us how american families in the middle of the adoption process are fighting to bring their new family members here to the us milks. yeah hundreds of americans adopted children from ukraine and i spoke with one family and iowa who tells me that they had all the paperwork already for them to be able to adopt their child from ukraine, but then covid-19 hit and now two years later, a war thousands of miles away is impacting them and preventing them from becoming a family. very loud
4:36 pm
personality. he whole room when he walks into it. that's how nikki and paul hynek described victor, a 10 year old orphan and ukraine who is waiting to call them mom and dad. whenever he comes to you, and we just have the best time with him. the family has hosted victor in his siblings in cedar rapids, iowa, many times. most recently this past christmas keeps the center toes but just like the world is his oyster, and he just goes after it. and while his room sits ready for him in america, victor and his siblings are stuck in the middle of the war in ukraine when they were traveling on the train, they saw ton of bombings and missiles as they described it to us. when they finally landed in live eve . they were in bomb shelters, and they hear the air raid sirens going on all the time. sisa adoption services in colorado is trying to help 45 american families trying to adopt ukrainian children. there
4:37 pm
isn't a way to move forward with adoptions right now, because officers that would do this the courts they're not open in ukraine. and so paperwork can't be sent over processes cannot continuous is bigger, says it's been difficult to keep in touch directly with the orphanages to let families know how the kids are doing. i think that we all know there will be long term consequences for all the people of ukraine and the trauma that they're going through. for families like the hynix. their biggest fear is that russia will take over my dream about it, and they are overrun by russia. obviously it's going to be very sad. it would be like losing a child. though, this be gut wrenching pain. the family tells me that victor of a demand slava , all three siblings are safe in a shelter in western ukraine. they also tell me that they face time with them every single day . the kids always asking when they will be able to come. to america in minneapolis mills hayes, ktvu. fox two news. yeah
4:38 pm
it's got to be, you know, reassuring, knowing that the kids are okay. but boy, such an anxious wait for so many families, mills. thank you. coming up. it's what it's san francisco's most recognizable charitable organizations when we come back to free community event tomorrow, planned by the st anthony foundation. and of area whether we are in the clear right now, but amtrak at some stronger winds tonight into tomorrow morning, and eventually some rain clouds could be headed our way we'll have th in new york city, ♪ ♪ there's always something new to discover. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
4:39 pm
come be a part of it. plan your next vacation at
4:40 pm
officials have tried for years to address the problems in the tenderloin. tomorrow, the same anthony fauci nation will host a community event aimed at transforming the community. joining us now live for more on this event at st anthony's ceo, neil's banke. thank you so much kneels for being here. what are
4:41 pm
the factors that are driving the need for this symposium now? yeah you know, the problems in our city are very well documented and the tenderloin as well and we believe that same japanese that we need to come together to solve them that this is not us versus them or finger pointing, but it's all of us together who can find the solutions and really make a difference. and that is what tomorrow is all about. yes we have seen recently. city officials and community groups, really doubling down on efforts to clean up the streets. but tomorrow neil's is really about finding practical solutions. what might some of those solutions be? i think it is mostly for us as a community to come together and understand it is about people, not programs. i'd say anthony's will really put people in the middle and we have a lot of different programs, but they don't always come together for people the way that they should. and i think this is an opportunity for us to talk about how that can be the case and how really a long term multi year commitment of companionship with our guests
4:42 pm
can really help them find a way to stability in a way that that's currently just hard for them to do. so when you talk about serving people, not programs. what does that look like? you know, i think we need to look at the whole program. our guests often find themselves in the situation that they have multiple barriers to overcome to employment to sobriety to their personal relationships, and we need to work on all of these things together with them at the same time over a long period of time so that they can achieve stability. and that st anthony's community become a gateway to stability for them. yes, saint anthony's, of course, has been leading efforts to provide services to those who need the help the most recently, neil's expanded your offerings talk a little bit about what's new. yes we have we now have a shower and laundry program for all our guests. um, i'm very thankful for our board that they were willing to make that investment in difficult covid times, and we've also opened the church across the street at saint bonnet fast. for a daytime shelter program august yes, i've
