>> announcer: closed-captioning bro frogtape. welcome to all you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i am kim brunhuber. just ahead -- >> early on in the war ukrainian troops refusing to surrender, and telling moscow where to go. >> i was in the kitchen and it started, she says. her home is now in ruins.
>> i think we all have been seeing the pictures and reading the reports regarding the devastation, the human costs both to property and most importantly to civilians, men, women and children. >> this is cnn breaking news. >> just a few days ago the warship was the crown jewel of russia, and now the guided cruisers sunk the ship by the ukrainian military. the u.s. and western intelligence believes ukraine's claims are credible. ukraine's national security adviser warns the strike on the
moss bough is just the start. >> this is a big blow to the black sea fleet. this is a cruiser, a capable warship with almost 500 sailors onboard and a key part of their efforts to execute some sort of navel dominance in the black sea. >> meanwhile russia is preparing for a major offensive to capture the donbas region adding command and control and aviation capabilities to its forces in the east. a senior u.s. defense official said the first troops that left ukraine are now appearing in the east, and by ukraine's claims, they have stopped the advance in the kharkiv region, and they destroyed a bridge just as russian convoy was crossing. we have our nic robertson in
london, and ben is in eastern ukraine, but we begin with matthew chants. >> the ship was always about delivering devastation, whether it's in ukraine or elsewhere. this is an extremely impressive bit of military hardware in the eastern mediterranean. when we went to board this off the syrian coast in 2015, the ship's captain told me they deployed on the personal orders of president putin. furious an aircraft had been shot down by turkey just weeks before, and the loss of this
firepower now, which we witnessed at close quarters seven years ago, is a humiliating military blow. it has enormous missile launching tubes, and it's got this big gun as well to defend itself, and most importantly this ship as sophisticated air defenses for the russian warplanes to carry out the air strikes back there in syria. that same weaponry was unleashed on ukraine, too. these recent images from the russian defense ministry showed the moskva shooting missiles, and ukrainian troops refusing to surrender telling the moskva
where to go. confirmation this black sea flagship has now bensoen sunk w be a boost for the ukrainian fighters. >> putin came to kill our children, our women, our civilians, and this in return is our gift to him. matthew chance, cnn, washington. >> the kremlin is warning against the further expansion of nato and threatening consequences if sweden and finland join the alliance, and med ef.
decisions are expected in the coming weeks. cnn's international diplomatic editor, nic robertson joins me now from london with more. putin seems to be reaping what he sewed here. >> there's a border between finland and russia, and you have had this neutral status, if you will, and russia will perceive and is perceiving finland's movement toward nato, and it's very likely they will put in a question at the summit in madrid in june this year. it's likely to increase tensions along the border, and navel forces around finland and as well as putting nuclear missiles
in the systems just across the see from helsinki. and actually russia has had the nuclear tip missiles there for sometime. how this plays out over the longer term really is very hard to know, but certainly this is exactly the opposite of what president putin was intending. it is as a direct result of the hostility shown to ukraine, and the risks he's taking in the region that finland and now sweden really feel that they are better served -- their national security is better served by having the sort of blanket umbrella support of nato's article 5, an attack on one is an attack against all. ukraine has -- russia's attack on ukraine has put that in very
sharp focus. >> appreciate it. now for more on this let's bring in the head of the ukraine forum at chatham house, and she joins me from london. thank you for being here with us. i want to start with your perspective on the sinking of the russian cruiser. what is the thinking of this, and less of military importance but from the morale point of view for ukraine and putin? >> the joke goes in ukraine, this is the most expensive stamp promotion because the postal service just issued a stamp with the scene from the island, the snake island when the same cruise missile muskva was trying to attack the ukrainians, sailors there told them where they should go.
it's significant because it's a flagship and it was based in crimea and it has been used to blockade the shipments throughout the black sea and it shows that russia is not as they like to look at as a power. >> and how worried are you that this vital military aid won't get there in time to be deployed to help turn the tide? obviously the clock is ticking here. >> time is the essence. you are absolutely right, kim. this is what the ukrainian political leadership is urging. we have seen the extermination
of ukrainians close to genocide in small towns near kyiv, and this is why ukrainian society and ukrainian armed forces are very much determined to mount a counter defensive and liberate those areas and defend what is possible to defend. that's why supply routes have to be strictly protected. they have to be sustainable and they have to move fast. we do see ukrainian railway functioning surprisingly well, both evacuating people one way and probably using to a certain degree to supply in those necessary munitions to the front line, but the battle for donbas will be vicious. we do expect huge suffering from the civilian populations. i do know that ukrainian government is trying to convince people to leave and not everybody wants to leave.
>> yeah. i mean, you spoke of this storched earth policy and this is a glimpse of what we might see, and it's tied to russia's new general leading the war in ukraine, and what should we expect in terms of tactics? >> absolutely. i think it's quite telling who was the head of operations in syria has the nickname of butcher in syria, and he annihilated and obliterated the town of aleppo, and he simply would bombard anything alive, and target civilian infrastructure, hospitals, schools, and then basically take over what was left. it's a similar strategy we are
already seeing in mariupol and on a bigger scale. the problem for the russians, they do not control the airspace like they did in syria, and they will be challenged, and that's why the anti-aircraft defense is so key, and that's why the 300s that slovakia is providing and other states are so important, because they will be key in the next battle for donbas. >> a super yacht was just seized from a russian oligarch, and the biden administration announcing they are going to put in new measures to crack down on russian measures, and about a month ago you wrote about the importance of these economic measures. you said what is needed is,
quote, economic warfare, not the weak sanctions and half measures put in place so far. now a month later where are we? are those measures strong enough yet? >> well, i am absolutely standing by the opinion that if the west is here to take down on putin and make sure he fails, we need to target the sources of income that he gets and cripple russian federal budgets to finance this war. obviously we have travelled quite far from where we were one month ago and right now what is really at stake is the energy embargo. it's primarily up to the european union states to decouple themselves from russian energy. some countries are much more forward on it. eastern europeans and poland, and some countries like austria or germany are lagging behind, and we need to have the critical
conversation because otherwise they will be complicit in the death of millions of ukrainians and all the horrors we are seeing. they are financed by the euros russia is able to extract from gas and oil. i would say we are doing good but we need to do more because russia is upping the scale of its score and not tuning it down. >> we have to leave it there. thank you so much for your analysis. we appreciate it. israeli police are stepping up security around one of jerusalem's holiest sites in a clash that sent 17 people to the hospital. israeli police say they were responding to rioters and some palestini palestinians threw fireworks and
stones at them on friday. what's the latest? >> reporter: this was already a significant day. nerves were on edge because not only is it ramadan but it's also good friday, and tonight is passover, a rare year where all the holidays overlap, and we started to hear the booms and crackles of the clashes. according to the israeli police, they are calling them violent rioters were launching fireworks and throwing rocks at them. more than 150 people have now been listed as injured, and in the clashes israelis say three of their officers were injured. the situation is calmer but still incredibly serious. because we are seeing social media video a few hours after the clashes started off, the police entered the mosque it
itself, and that could be what is happening in jerusalem, and a year ago, right around this time, around ramadan, there was tension and clashes in jerusalem that helped spaurt the 11-day conflict between hamas and israel. tensions have been high since the israelis military did raids, and tensions in jerusalem were focused on threats from some jewish extremists that wanted to come to the temple mount of jews. they ultimately did not do so but just the threat of it brought hamas, the militant group to controls gaza to go and
defend it. things have been up and down all day, and the israeli police shut off the entrances to anybody from entering the old city, and they have since lifted it and people are going in and out, and there's a question of what will happen after the friday prayers and what will hamas's response in gaza me to the activities today in jerusalem. >> thank you so much. coming up here on cnn "newsroom," we will have a live report on poland on the refugee crisis as millions of ukrainians flee the fighting. plus, this -- >> it's hard, she says. i can't stand this room. i am so afraid. i want it to be quiet and calm again. >> we visit a town in eastern ukraine that could be among the first to face a renewed russian assault. stay with us.

ukraine will win for sure because our people are united very much so. you understand? because they are altogether, and that's why we will surely win. >> ukrainian refugees are remaining defiant in the face of russian aggression as it steps up its campaign in the east. more than 4.7 million people have fled the country since the fighting started and more than 7 million are internally displaced within ukraine. on thursday nine humanitarian corridors were agreed upon. and we go near the ukrainian border. selma, tell us what you have been seeing there. >> i will start by explaining where i am. i am in a used office building, and this office building has been turned into a shelter for women and fleeing children. you can see drawings on the wall
and even posters from kids in the u.s. wishing them well. if you take a look on the other side for me, there's a kitchen that has been set up to get their morning coffee and breakfast. there's about 50 families here, kim, and what is extraordinary about the space is it's done by the kindness of one friendly man who opened up the office building, and he spent thousands of his own dollars and he started it, opened it up just after the war started. tell me what this place is and what it provides? >> this is a refugee center, and they provide showers and beds and heat -- not heat, but hot lunches and dinners every day for all the people here. the people, they need clothes, food, canned goods so people
come straight from the border, it's close to the border, they can come here and they have some rest, a breather and just realize what is happening in their lives, basically. >> what does it mean for these families? the way we found you, we saw a sign in the train station, and i am sure that is a way a lot of families find you. >> i think it means the world. i saw a plea, help me on facebook -- i'm just emotional. they say there are thousands of people and there's no shower or nothing and they came here and they can just feel themselves as a human being, you know. we have a family that came and they were in ukraine in a basement for a month, and they didn't take their shoes off for a month or take a shower -- i'm sorry.
>> it's okay. it does mean everything. you are describing what these families are going through. i know you live in the u.s. and came here to volunteer. what are the needs these families have? >> we need to place them. we need to find them a house -- a family that can invite them and open the house, and lots of transportation from the border to the place in other country, in poland, they don't want to be a burden to anybody, we will work, please give us that, and we just want to go home eventually. they are, like, i don't want this, nobody wants this and i didn't ask for them, and they want to go home so bad but can't. >> thank you for explaining that to us. kim, i want to show you one last thing set up here at the center, and it's a board and the name of each family that is here and the
room they are in, and they are looking for hosts, kim, and that's what all of this is -- why all of this is so extraordinary. it's completely organic. this is strangers pitching in and helping out good samaritans, trying to open up rooms and spaces, and you have to ask how much longer can people provide this? the man here is providing that on his own dime. >> the emotion in her voice when she talks about the needs of the refugees, and so many people like her choosing to step in and make a vital difference here, really powerful and heartwarming to hear that story. thank you so much. after seeing that, if you want to help people to safely and securely sort of make a difference in ukraine for people who may need shelter, food and water as you have seen there, go

cnn "newsroom." russian troops that retreated from northern ukraine two weeks ago are now beginning to show up in the donbas region and the russians are running up against fierce resistance as they try and advance. they blew up the bridge as a russian convoy was crossing it. and ukraine claims it hit a guided missile cruiser. moscow is widely expected to launch a three-pronged attack to try and capture some of ukraine. >> reporter: denise loads food in his car for a delivery run. the supplies were donated from
around ukraine and abroad. denise was a musician before the war. >> it's broken. >> this is the city furthest east under constant bombardment from russian forces nearby. the supplies denise and other volunteers deliver are what keep this city alive. two missiles landed outside this woman's apartment building. the strain of living under the shelling more than she can take. it's hard, she says. i can't stand this room. i am so afraid. i want it to be quiet and calm again. with russian forces amassing in the east, there will be no quiet. there will be no calm.
sitting on a hospital bed, she recounts the night her house was hit. i was in the kitchen and it started, she says. her home is now in ruins. more than 20 corpses lie scattered in the morgue wrapped in sheets and blankets awaiting burial. and in the streets, more evidence of the toll the war has taken. it's a graveyard, look at the dates, 7th of april, 9th of april, 3rd of april, and it goes on and on and on. more graves will soon be filled. ben wedeman, cnn, eastern ukraine.
and then the prosecutor that may want to prosecute for war crimes. he's now travelled to two towns near kyiv where mass graves and other atrocities were discovered after russian troops pulled out. we want to warn you here, some of the images in there are graphic. >> i think we have all been seeing the pictures and reading the reports regarding the devastation, the human costs both to property, but most importantly to civilians, men, women and children. so it was an opportunity to see firsthand, to verify and to try and start a process of a collection. >> putin is out there saying it's all fake and a hoax, and you are seeing it with your own eyes. >> we have to separate truth
from falsehood, and there are allegations and counter allegations and this is why there's an important role for an independent prosecutors office, and we don't have a political agenda, and we are not in favor of russia or ukraine, we are in favor of humanity. new york subway shooter will stay behind bars for now. james did not enter a plea to a charge related to terrorism, an attack on mass transit. outside the courtroom his lawyer cautioned against a rush to judgment. >> mr. james saw his photograph on the news and he called crime-stoppers to help. he told them where he was. initial press and police reports in cases like this one are often inaccurate. mr. james is entitled to a fair
trial and we will make sure he receives one. >> prosecutors claim james set off two smoke bombs before shooting, and 29 people injured and four still hospitalized and investigators did not say what his motive might have been. the family of a man shot and killed by police is calling for the termination and prosecution of the police officer that shot him. cnn's omar huh has the story. >> speaking publicly through their pastor for the first time since police released video of their son being killed. >> i think about him every time. and i still cannot believe that my son died. >> the family came to the united states to flee war in the
democratic republic of congo, but it was in the united states that a bullet killed her son. the father still remembers asking police how his son was killed. >> translator: very astonishing. they told me he was killed by an officer. i didn't believe it. i say, the police, who is supposed to be watching him is the one that killed him? >> on april 4th, being pulled over for incorrect registration, and he runs and then the officer used his taser twice but failed to make tack, and the two go to the ground for what would be the final time struggling for a few brief moments before the officer's final words.
>> drop the taser! i was just involved in a shooting. nelson, griggs. >> the officer got up. lyoya didn't. centered on justice for a new face in what many see as a familiar story. the officer that fired the shot still hasn't been named but has been stripped of his police powers, and the family's power is focussed on one thing. >> translator: if really patrick is dead, i just ask for justice. >> cnn, grand rapids, michigan. coming up on cnn "newsroom,"

right before mike decided to say yes... he learned he had ibs-c and could treat it with linzess. it explained why his constipation with belly pain wouldn't go away. and why the belly pain, discomfort, and bloating couldn't be kept at bay. after mike learned his symptoms were signs of a chronic condition, his doctor helped him make a decision. and that's why he said yess to adding linzess. linzess is not a laxative. it helps you have more frequent and complete bowel movements. and is proven to help relieve overall abdominal symptoms-belly pain, discomfort, and bloating. do not give linzess to children less than two. it may harm them. do not take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain. especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach area pain, and swelling. could your story also be about ibs-c? talk to your doctor and say yess to linzess. learn how abbvie and ironwood could help you
save on linzess. shanghai is reporting more than 23,000 new covid cases. that's 95% of all new infections reported across china on thursday. now this comes as more than 40 chinese cities are under full or partial lockdowns to stop the latest covid outbreak which may still be getting worse. shanghai is battling china's worst covid outbreak since wuhan in 2019. david, what is the latest on the covid numbers and the lockdowns, obviously you have been going through as well?
>> yeah, living it in person here, and difficult in a city of 25 million, and it's down from the prior day's reporting, and that's good news but it's still significant enough to continue building the quarentine centers, and they are trying to stop the rapid spread and at the same time giving people the hope or illusion that the lockdowns might end. a few steps of freedom granted to some shanghai residents, strolling their own neighborhoods as if taking in some strange new world. >> where are you going to go? there's nowhere to go. >> this woman still can't hold back her joy after she and her
neighbors roam the streets. and government officials lifted some restrictions, for communities like mine without a positive case in the last seven days, that meant we could step outside our apartments, and my neighbors enjoying the taste of relative freedom, and so too our pets stretching their legs within the confines of our compound. my extent of freedom is all the way to here, the compound gate, still double locked. it's been that way for about a month. in recent weeks, we had to get permission to leave our homes, mostly for covid tests, which there were many. and then today's delivery, a bag of rice. with heavy restrictions still in place, we have it good for now at least. a majority of the city remains in hard lockdown, kept to their homes, some hungry and
suffering. this woman heard begging in the middle of the night, pleading for fever medicine for her child. and this man recording his dwindling food supply. then there are those that tested positive, tens of thousands being sent to cramped quarantine centers, whose residents have described a host of problems, facility that were apparently quickly and poorly constructed. outside of shanghai, panic spreading quicker than the virus, and the horror stories have residents in other chinese cities stocking up. online sales for prepackaged foods surging, this has china's health commission calling out and shifting blame to local officials for allowing it to spread to other faces.
residents banging on pots to protest, and most of the 24 million people in the northern chinese provence confined to their homes for more than a month now. back in shanghai, the joys of freedoms might last just a few hours for some, as it takes one new case nearby to send them back inside, resetting for their community, another 14-day sentence in lockdown, a seemingly endless cycle. one thing that has been reinforced from the top, zero covid, that policy is here to stay. kim, that has been stressed multiple times by president xi jinping. queen elizabeth has had visitors this week. prince harry and his wife, meghan, stopped by.
harry said he hoped to visit his grandmother soon. joining me from outside buckingham palace, bashir. >> reporter: the queen won't be taking part in the easter sunday service, and it's an important weekend where she would be gathering with families but she has opted not to take part in that service this week. we have heard of other health concerns. we understand the queen has experienced feeling tired and exhausted since her bout with covid in february. we have seen her on occasion using a cane for some engagements, so some are suggesting perhaps trouble with her mobility.
in march she did spend a night in a hospital and was advised by doctors to take it easy and take a rest and she was absent from some royal engagements during that period, and all eyes will be on the queen and royal family, and she's due to celebrate her 96th birthday next week. this reunion with prince harry and the duchess of sussex will be a welcome visit. we have heard from prince harry and he has said the family has taken part in zoom calls with the queen and have kept in touch despite the tension in the family, and that was expressed openly by the duchess in her
interview with oprah winfrey, and clearly those ties still strong. prince harry and meghan markle meeting with the queen on their way to the invictus games, and a deeply important event for the prince who founded the games. >> thank you. appreciate it. the u.s. pounded by storms this week. we will look at what is in store for the weekend. we will go live to the cnn weather center to find out. stay with us.. r new home - across town or across the country. pods, your personal moviving and storage team. some home fragrances can be... overwhelming. air wick fresh new day fills your space with fragrance that's always fresh, never overpering. air wick. nnect to nature.
you're looking at damage from a tornado that hit moore county on tuesday night. authorities are still assessing the costs but estimate $100 million worth of damage was done. residents and volunteers are clearing debris and cleaning up the community. let's bring in meteorologist, norm. what happened? >> that is one of 30 tornadoes,
kim, we have been tracking the last couple of days as a series of storms have been moving through, and hail reports and rain, and mississippi valley, two to four inches and in some cases more than that. as we move towards the weekend, believe it or not we are still dealing with fires. first the storms, there will be a new round of severe weather that will erupt later this evening into early saturday, and then it will sag down into the southeast for saturday afternoon. we could see potential tornadoes like in oklahoma and arkansas. they have the greatest risk. because of the high heat across texas and new mexico, a red flag warning is in effect and fire could spread quickly in those areas. let's switch seasons again. talk about winter weather.
three feet of snow has fallen in montana, and north dakota and across the pacific northwest, four to six inches. here comes the system bringing that snow to that part of the country. then we will see even more. in fact, the places i showed you that got hit with a tornado, they will likely have snow by easter morning. as far as accumulation amounts, we could see six inches to a foot especially in the sierra nevada, and so kim we have a lot going on head into a holiday weekend. >> we'll keep an eye on it throughout the weekend. thank you so much. before we go, staff at the russian embassy in washington thought they found a crafty way to thwart a protest. >> they try and drown you out. they tried to drown you out.
you see that? >> as you see there, they used a spotlight to try and blot out the ukrainian flag being projected on the building, and so a cat and mouse ensued, and organizers tell cnn their next protest is to plant sun flowers, the national flower of ukraine across the street from the embassy. okay. that wraps this hour of cnn "newsroom," and i am kim brunhuber. coverage continues. you are watching cnn.
