12:00 am
hello, a warm welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. live in lviv, ukraine. the horrors of war in this nation only seem to grow. we have new images of a mass grave in mariupol. where clrussia claims victory. >> following tensions out a mask
12:01 am
in jerusalem. hurling stones at israel forces who responded with tear gas. live in jerusalem ahead. now ukraine denies the port city of mariupol has fallen to russian forces. despite russia's president claiming it has been liberated. those were his words. unknown number of ukrainian civilians and soldiers are still holding out inside the sprawling steel factory. they are reported to be critically low on water as well as food. russian president vladimir putin has chosen to wait them out. and ordered a blockade around the plant that even a fly can't get through. also his words. not far away ukrainian officials say the grim discovery of suspected mass graves as to really the growing evidence of russian war crimes.
12:02 am
images indicate about 200 new graves were recently added. ukraine former prime minister called on the international community to get serious about prosecuting the atrocities. have a listen. >> the world has to stand its ground. we need not just to send the message, we need to send a legal team to every single spot where putin committed crimes. and actually orchestrate a legal case against putin. >> civilian evacuations from mariupol have been extremely difficult from the very beginning but now they're almost non-existent. fewer than 100 people were able to reach the relative safety on thursday. the mayor says many more are decemb desperate to leave but can't. >> there are still 100,000 people in the city. who for the second day in a row are waiting for evacuation.
12:03 am
and give a tiny number of buses. yesterday they say 90 buses but only seven arrived. >> u.s. president biden says another $800 million package of u.s. military hardware is heading to ukraine. quickly as possible. he announced additional $500 million to support the ukrainian government. now the weapon shipments include canyons, 140,000 artillery rounds and type of attack drone modified to suit ukraine circumstances. a gruesome example of russian soldiers brutality is allegedly caught on tape. ukrainian military intelligence says it enintercepted communication saying to kill pows. have a listen to this. >> what can i tell you, damn it.
12:04 am
--. you keep the most senior among them and let the rest go. let them go forever. so no one will ever see them again. including relatives. >> cnn can't verify the recording. ukraine says previous intercepted communication reveal russia's plan to level everything to the ground of a steel plant in mariupol. where soldiers and civilians are hold up. constant bombardment has really been a way of life for many left in ukraine's battered cities. russian and ukrainian forces battle for control. civilians find themselves in the middle. we go to the basement of a bombed out theater where people are finding shelter and little else. >> it begins again.
12:05 am
hell rains down. a dozen people are hiding in the basement of a bombed out theater in the town. let it stop, oh lord. he says. now there's incoming. a white flag hangs outside to no effect. the theater above has been bombed and bombed again and again. they stay. too poor, too old, too frightened to flee. 89-year-old has been here for five weeks. i want to go home, she says. i have suffered too much. i have seen the fire and the smoke. i have seen it all. i'm scared. her plea simple. help us. help us. her daughter struggles to comfort her.
12:06 am
we're praying to god to stop it. she says. to hear us. i have nowhere to go, she says. i have no friends. no relatives. with the shelling intensifying, volunteers are finding it hard to deliver food. as russian and ukrainian forces fight for control. there are people down there. praying. as hell rains down. >> just so much heart ache. you're seeing across the country. my next guest is a member of ukraine parliament. joining us live from kyiv. thank you for speaking to us. let me start with our top story this hour. and that's discovery of the mass graves. what can you tell us?
12:07 am
>> look, it's not the first and we're sure not the last case when we'll receive confirmation of war crimes and crimes against humanity. which had been already happening in ukraine. and i support many of ukrainian politicians and support president zelenskyy claiming from the west the criminal responsibility for everyone who did what war crimes in ukraine. we're not talking about vladimir putin and it's a big mistake to say he's responsible for all atrocities if ukraine. thousands of russian soldiers, thousands of russian officers were killing civilians. what we need to do is investigate everything and we need to bring them to accountability. and responsibility. that's why i decided military support which ukraine needs. we need huge support and criminal justice.
12:08 am
to get everything and record everything properly. because all the people shall be bring to responsibility in international criminal court. >> does ukrainian government have a sense at this hour of how many people have been inhumanely dumped in the graves? any sense of the scale here? >> i know more or less figures on kyiv region which we now currently try to clean up. it's about 1,000 bodies of z civilians which have been collected. when we speak about mariupol, it's very difficult to calculate. there's a confusing numbers of people which were in the city before the war. it's something between 400,450,000. but based on the local reports on the military and officials. we may say about ten to 20,000
12:09 am
people have been already killed in mariupol. and surrounding areas. >> ten and 20,000 you expect have been already killed in mariupol? and surrounding areas. of course we don't know how many we're looking at mass graves here. will you ukrainian officials, you're talking about the importance of gathering evidence of war crimes. will ukrainian officials be traveling to -- how are the atrocities being documented? >> again, it's easier to do that in kyiv region. but again, huge amount of cases, it's extremely high workload on our law enforcement. with mariupol it's much more complex. for the moment we don't have access to the city. no organization has access to the city. that's why it will be much more difficult to record everything
12:10 am
what is happening in mariupol. last we know for sure russians already used -- they are burning bodies to hide the crimes they already did. that's why i think for the moment we need to collect as much as possible. live images and intelligence information and only after liberating mariupol we will be able to investigate more. we collect weaknesses and information. witnesses information. and luckily a lot of people were able to escape. each witness is important. >> so many people meanwhile roughly 100,000 i believe are still stranded in mariupol. evacuations haven't gone according to plan. are you hoping for humanitarian corridor today? or is that on hold? >> unfortunately russian
12:11 am
military -- never in the history they were taking into consideration the life of civilians. we understand that they will continue to do the same in mariupol. and other places in ukraine. ukraine we do everything what we can. we try to influence or allies and influence international community. to try to force vladimir putin to ensure safety for civilians immigration. but they always lie, they never keep word or promises. that's why our expectations are quite pessimistic. we'll continue to do everything what we can. at least hundreds of thousands of people are still in mariupol. >> very quickly, these mass graves that we see outside mariupol, is this genocide? >> that's very important.
12:12 am
again, our target is bring all of them to responsibility and in this case, the terminology is important. legal definitions have important. that's why we claim all the world we claim united states and all other civilized countries to recognize everything that is happening here as genocide. russians are killing ukrainians just because they're ukrainian. without any other reason. it is genocide in the 21st century. >> thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us. stay safe. some breaking news coming in to cnn. we can now confirm ukraines deputy prime minister says there will be no humanitarian corridors open in the hours ahead. he cites danger along the routes for a reason. just one example the dire need for corridors. estimated 100,000 people that
12:13 am
remain trapped as we were discussing mariupol. the southern city has been under constant bombardment since it was surrounded by russian forces on march 1. and that is according to ukrainian officials. they claim that more than 20,000 people have died in mariupol during the assault. this coming in, ukrainian officials describe heavy fighting. in a russian offensive in the donbas region. we'll keep on top of the two documents. but really the humanitarian corridors. something we have seen the real challenges in mariupol. some 70 people valuable to make their way from mariupol. the expectations were 6,000. very worrying deed. >> all right. thank you so much. clashes broken out between israel police and palestinians
12:14 am
at the mosque compound in jerusalem. live in jerusalem. what is the latest on the volatile situation? >> jerusalem has been on edge for a week now. clashes broke out at the temple on friday. we're seeing this once again. video circulating online showing hundreds of palestinians throws rocks and police are responding with stun grenades and tear gas in a statement the police said this all started around 4:00 a.m. this morning. the palestinians were throwing stones and launching fire works. including towards the back of the western wall. where jews traditionally pray. they were forced to use dispersing demonstrations to stop the violence and repel the crowd. 31 injuries, 14 to the hospital. the rest treated on site.
12:15 am
we are seeing videos of tree that caught fire. on compound. police say it was because of a fire work. today came as the third friday of ram dan and the last day of pass over. this is an unusual confluence of holiday this is year. last weekend the western easter were all over lapping. that was contributing to the tension. in addition it's been several weeks of tension in israel and across the west bank. a series of deadly attacks that kill 14 people in israel. the military stepping up raids in the west bank. those raids and other clashes led to the death of at least a dozen palestinians. and then the tensions in jerusalem as well. the other night we saw rockets fired from ga sa into israel. it doesn't seem the militant groups want to escalate further. they warn the finger is on the trigger as they watch this unfold. >> we'll keep monitoring that

deputy prime minister says there will be no humanitarian corridors on friday. and she blames danger along the route. meanwhile the check foreign minister is hole holding out nato will help with evacuations. saying it would be a game changer. u.s. state department says there's hopes russians will allow nato allies to help evacuate the region. and report heavy nighting again today. an initial in the office of the president says the last 24 hours, 42 have come under russian control. let's dpo live to brussels. and find international diplomatic. good morning to you. explain how nato could be involved here and what that might look like. >> nato is not talking about

12:33 am
them from the siege in par poll. this plays into president putin's hands nicely. it allows propaganda machine to spin this as a victory. over mariupol. and that the ukrainian forces are defeated and this of course is to his propaganda and the idea that they are winning in ukraine all over. and that the ukrainian forces were under pressure. there wouldn't seem to be a will on the russian leadership side at the moment to allow evacuation of military elements. within mariupol. at the moment. the moment this is an idea that is being cherished. perhaps kindled by some nato members. but not one that we see there the embers glowing into a final product chblt. >> game changer at least on paper. it doesn't seem that it will happen. nick in brussels, appreciate it. thanks very much.
