1:00 am
a warm welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and around the world. i'm coming to you from lviv and we're following breaking news coverage of the war in ukraine. and just ahead right here -- >> we are going to do everything we can to push back on president putin's aspirations. >> if you want to restore the old empire, you lose. and if you go against the ukrainians, you lose. >> ukrainians are dying for this choice of freedom and democracy. >> my city now looks like huge
1:01 am
cemetery. >> this is cnn breaking news. >> it is tuesday, april 26th, 11:00 a.m. here in lviv, ukraine. the country's military says that it has successfully repelled several attacks in the east as well as the south as russia continues to ramp up its offensive in its new phase of fighting now three months into the war. russian troops are in control of the city council, they have been occupying the region for weeks now. the city's mayor says the armed men entered the building on monday. this coming of course just days ahead of a so-called independence referendum. ukraine's president praised the civilians standing up to the forces. have a listen. >> translator: people showed with their protests their attitude that ukraine would definitely win. does russia want to play a sham
1:02 am
referendum somewhere on our land? even if they tried, it will be as shameful as anything else created in moscow for the occupation of ukraine. >> meanwhile, heavy fighting continues in eastern ukraine nonstop russian shelling has been reported in the luhansk and as well as donetsk regions. and anned a minu ne administrat this tiny village on the front lines has seen intense fighting over the past week and now as you can see on the screen, just lies in ruins. ukrainian forces and russian backed separatists are blaming each other for the destruction there. meanwhile, ahead of a meeting with the u.n. chief in the coming hours, russia's foreign minister says that the danger of nuclear war is serious but he insists that russia is doing everything it can to lower those risks. the demands on health care workers you can imagine have increased exponentially since the beginning of the invasion, many putting their own lives at
1:03 am
risk every day to save others. clarissa ward and her team followed two brave paramedics as they attempted to save a man in heavy shelling. >> reporter: it is the beginning of a 24 hour shift for these paramedics. they prepare their ambulance for the carnage that kharkiv residents confront every day. we have two, he says. and this is one of the most dangerous jobs. every moment together is precious. a loud stream of booms signals the day's work is beginning. that is incoming now, this ambulance worker tells us. alexandra and vladimir answer
1:04 am
the call. she says the code used when someone has been wounded by shelling. their flak jackets on, they are ready to roll out. they got reports one person at least has been injured in the shelling and they are hearing rockets as well. so we'll see what is going on. le the shells hit a residential apartment building. russian forces are increasingly hitting the same target twice so they have to act fast. takes horrifying strategy to take out rescue workers as they respond. we see for ourselves. get in, vladimir shouts, faster, faster, faster. they take cover under the
1:05 am
stairwell. alexandra is trying to find the wounded person, but there is no signal. at that moment, another barrage goes off. we brace for the impact. is everybody okay alexandra asks? our team member maria has cut her hands on broken glass. vladimir treats her injuries as alexandra calls dispatch again to find where the wounded are. we've got no connection, we're sitting in the entrance, she says, and they are shelling the shit out of us.
1:06 am
the connection keeps dropping. finally she gets through to the person who called for the ambulance. tell me your damn house number, she says. i repeat, 12-g. i've told you a thousand times, he replays. the -- he replies. the man is dying. we decide to try to make a run for it . so we were just in an apartment
1:07 am
building. they were looking for an injured man. a bunch of rounds came in and hit the next door building, so now we're getting out as fast as we can. while we run out, vladimir and alexander run back in. we find them treating the injured man on the side of the road. the back window has been blown out by the blasts. he has shrapnel injuries and head trauma. once they have stabilized him, they rush him to the hospital. vladimir asks about his pain. the man has been defiafened by e blast. arriving at the hospital, they have done their part. it is up to others now to save him. >> i have to say, i think that you are the bravest people i've ever met. >> reporter: back at base, we ask them why they continue to do this work. with all the danger it entails.
1:08 am
it is normal, this is our work, of course it is scary like for everyone alexandra says. today you were with us in the hottest place, in the oven, but we're still alive, thank god. you feel it is your duty, your obligation, vladimir tells us, to help the people who are still here. and what do your parents say, what does your family say, aren't they wanting you to stop this work? no, it is very difficult. >> reporter: they must be scared. proud but scared. >> calls all day, all night. >> reporter: we saw your mother. >> yes. >> reporter: she's worried to the point of hysteria, alexandra tells us. she says you need to leave, you need to go to some safe place, why are you doing this. i have only one child, stop it.
1:09 am
and what do you say? i have to do it, she says simply. and with that, they go back to cleaning their ambulance. their shift only halfway through. clarissa ward, cnn, kharkiv. let me take you to the air base where secretary austin is speaking. >> -- my sense of urgency that we all share. so i'd like this whole group today to leave with a common and transparent understanding of ukraine's security requirements because we're going to keep moving heaven and earth so that we can meet them. as you will hear from general walters, the coordination mechanism that we have in place can become even stronger with all of your help. and we can do more for our
1:10 am
defense industrial bases to continue to help ukraine defend itself even more. we're joined today by my dear friend ukraine administer of def defense. good to have you here and we welcome your team as well. we're all here because of ukraine's courage, because of the civilians who have been killed and because of the suffering that your people still endure. >> and you were listening there -- we're trying to reconnect because would he lost our signal to u.s. secretary lloyd austin speaking at the ramstein air base. let's try to listen in again. >> your hospitals have been
1:11 am
bombed. your citizens have been executed. your children have been traumatized. but ukraine has done a magnificent job defending its sovereignty against russia's unprovoked invasion and ukraine's valor and skill will go down in military history. the battle of iwo jima took 36 days. battle of the bulge lasted 40 days. and ukraine has now beaten back the russian military for 62 days. and so your resistance has brought inspiration to the free world. and even greater resolve to nato. and glory to ukraine. we provided our assistance at record speak. and the whole world can see the difference that is making on the battlefield. putin never imagined that the world would rally behind ukraine
1:12 am
so swiftly and surely. after ukraine's defeat at the battle of kyiv, pardon me, after russia's defeat at the -- russia's defeat at the battle of kyiv, big distinction there, mr. minister, the war is now entering a new phase. but nobody is fooled by putin's pretext or by his phony claims on the donbas. so let's be clear. russia's invasion is indefensible. and so are russian atrocities. we all start today from a position of moral clarity. russia is a war of choice toin d to indulge the ambitions of one name. ukraine is fighting a war of necessity to defend its
1:13 am
democracy, its sovereignty and its citizens. but the stakes reach beyond ukraine and even beyond europe. russia's invasion is baseless, reckless and lawless. it is an affront to the rules based international order, it is a challenge to free people everywhere. and as we see this morning, nations of good will from around the world stand united in our resolve to support ukraine in its fight against russia's imperial aggression. and that is the way it should be. this gathering reflects the galvanized world. since russia's invasion on february 24th, more than 30 of our allies and partners from across the globe have joined the united states to rush security assistance to ukraine. and together we have committed h more than $5 billion of equipment to support ukraine's self-defense and that includes
1:14 am
some $3.7 billion that president biden has committed to help ukraine since russia's invasion began. my trip to kyiv reinforced my admiration for the way that the ukrainian armed forces are deploying these capabilities. ukraine clearly believes that it can win. and so does everyone here. now to inform our common understanding of the situation, you will be hearing later from several of my teammates including our chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general milley, and i look forward to hearing from all of you as well. i know that we're all determined to do everything we can to meet ukraine's needs as the fight evolves. and that includes talking today about a framework for continuing to work together and look ahead. we have much more to do. ukraine needs our help to win
1:15 am
today. and they will still need our help when the war is over. as president biden says, our security assistance has gone directly to the front lines of freedom. and to the fearless and skilled ukrainian fighters who are standing in the breach. my ukrainian friends, we know the burden that you all carry. and we know, and you should know, that all of us have your back. and that is why we're here today. to strengthen the arsenal of ukrainian democracy. i'm proud to be here with all of you and i look forward to our vital discussions. and so we'll pause for a minute and allow our colleagues in the media to depart and then we'll continue. thank you very much.
1:16 am
>> you have been listening to u.s. defense sent lloyd austin speaking at ramstein air base alongside the nato secretary-general stoltenberg, and that meeting will take place following on from that press conference just now. he is joined there as he said by ukraine's minister of defense, and it follows of course his meeting -- his face-to-face meeting i should add in kyiv, in ukraine, with president zelenskyy that happened on sunday. so in terms of what he said, i'll give you highlights of what he said, we are here to continue to help ukraine defend itself, here because of ukraine's courage he said and suffering of the people of ukraine. your hospitals are being bombed, your citizens are being executed. your children he said are being traumatized. he said we can do more to help ukraine defend itself. and he called russia's aggression, imperial aggression,
1:17 am
saying that russia's aggressions and atrocities are indefensible, russia is waging a war of choice for one man. and so we'll keep on top of what comes out of that meeting a bit later on this hour. but breaking news in the meantime to come out -- coming in just now, interior ministry reports two radio towers have been damaged by explosions in the breakaway region in moldova. the ministry says no radio staff or residents were hurt. no information was given about the cause of the explosions, but ukraine is blaming russia for a series of explosions calling them a planned provocation. russia has about 1500 or so troops stationed there. and we'll stay on top of that breaking news story.
1:18 am
and a busy morning, so i want to get the insight and perspective from director of ukraine chatham house and she joins me from london. good to see you. let me ask, i imagine that you were listening there to what lloyd austin was saying, strong words yet again, very clear position from the u.s. vis-a-vis this war in ukraine and russia too. >> it is a real important day today, the meeting of the alliance and such a steadfast u.s. leadership. we have seen ukraine's perseverance and total mobilization of population. and in ukraine, 90% of civilians and armed forces believe that they can repel russian aggression. and here today, we also heard from secretary austin saying that we also believe ukraine can win. but there is still a lot do jointly with an alliance to develop a strategy so that all members of the alliance share
1:19 am
the vision and work towards that vision. very important. >> and here in ukraine particularly in the east and south, we have seen very intense and nonstop shelling i think it is fair to say including attacks on railways, i'm talking about in the lviv region, which shows in many ways how much it is a war of logistics. >> absolutely. any military strategy to be successful needs backing of supply lines, of munitions, of food, medical supplies. and that railway connection is key for ukraine. ukraine has actually one of the most densely developed and sophisticated railway systems in europe and that is why that railway was sustaining the first two months of war and also remember allowing people to flee. most of the ukrainians were fleeing bombardments through the
1:20 am
railway. and so it is key that ukraine sustains those lines, quickly repairs. from what i understand, the trains restored their capacity yesterday, so the damage was inflicted but it was not critical. >> let's talk moariupol because we haven't seen humanitarian corridors the last few days. how much longer do you think those people that have been holed up inside the women, children, soldiers can hold on for here? because it has been, what, 50 plus days? >> yes, absolutely it is from the first of march, mariupol is under the siege and ukrainian armed forces succeeded to supply something via helicopter drops at night and some of that storage munitions, some food, but mostly it is military supplies stored in azovstal, one of the largest steel factories in europe.
1:21 am
it is hard to tell. i don't think that this can last for very long. it is so critical that women and children are allowed to exit. i don't have high hopes, but i still hope perhaps general secretary guttierez will be able to negotiate at least exit of women and children out of there because i'm sure the situation is existential for them. it is a matter of life or death in several days for civilians. i'm not talking about military personnel. they can i'm sure sustain longer because there are a lot of underground tunnels in that factory. >> and we know that the secretary-general guttierez is meeting with president putin and sergey lavrov in moscow today. let me ask you this, because there is talk that russia's generals will need to provide putin some sort of victory, a win of some kind, by may 9, which is the world war ii
1:22 am
victory day i think it is. do you fear that mariupol and its plant may be a trophy they are trying to get? >> you're right, i think that this is the easiest trophy and kind of an understandable trophy that they could get. it is the large port town that in a way has already been to a large degree obliterated, taking on the control. and we've seen this vicious images of the fighters exterminating, you know, whatever was walking on the street. but i think that beyond that, it is very difficult to imagine how russians can establish solid control over the larger territory in donbas and that fight with the proper assistance from the west will be very vicious and difficult from the russians. so really there is very little that they can say other than mariupol because in the military terms they have not taken, they have destroyed. >> yeah, completely destroyed as we have seen images from the
1:23 am
ground. always great to get your perspective. thanks. and i want to get more now from oren liebermann who is standing by at ramstein air base and was at that press conference with lloyd austin. what i heard was a very clear messaging yet again from the secretary-general about the u.s. position on what they can do alongside nato allies to try to help ukraine here. >> reporter: lloyd austin said in the opening statement that ukraine can win this fight, but it is a question of what weaponry the u.s. and others can provide them. and that is the purpose of this whole meeting here with some 40 plus countries here, this being called the ukraine defense consulting group to discuss about what weapons that they need short term and long term, what happens if and when it drags out or if and when there is an end to the fight and what kind of weapons do they need to protect their own sovereignty.
1:24 am
so that is the purpose of these discussions. we heard more of that same optimistic and perhaps definitive rhetoric from the american administration that ukraine can win this fight as long as they keep on providing those weapons. and we've seen that continuation of announcements not only the $3.4 billion that the u.s. has provided up to this point, but also the announcement yesterday of another $165 million in sales of essentially soviet era ammunition and the sort of weapons that they know right now, but there are the beginnings of the discussions and thinking process of what it would take to convert them and transition them to the nato-capable weapons, the type of weapons that the u.s. is using, what is the raining that they would need, how do he get the weapons in. and so that is what the discussion is about as the u.s. is watching closely. in terms of how today will play out, the defense minister is here and he will give an update on how the battle is unfolding. and then there will be a session focused on the short and medium term and one focused on the
1:25 am
longer term bringing together all the countries to figure out who has the weapons ukraine needs and who can get it to them and how quickly. >> and on that point, are all the may toe all nato allies on e here? because there has been criticism that perhaps germany has been somewhat slow and hesitating somewhat in providing military material. >> reporter: so there is the broader question of do all nato countries support ukraine and that answer is yes, but there is some hesitancy in terms of what weapons that they can send in. but nobody has slowed the process. nato habit september hasn't se its own. it is conditions within nato making the decision to send weapons. and that is how that process has unfolded. have others faced criticism for not sending in weapons? yes, we've seen that. are we expecting more
1:26 am
announcements? it is unclear what comes out of today, if this is just discussions or if we're expecting something concrete. we'll wait to see that. but part of the point of the u.s. and for example the uk being so loud and so open about sending in weapons is that it makes it easier for other countries to do the same either publicly or quitely through the system the u.s., uk and others have established. >> and i know that you will bring us up to speed as soon as we get more developments from that meeting there. oren liebermann, great to see you, thank you very much. and this breaking news just in from the warzone, ukrainian authorities say two guided missiles were fired at the city of zaporizhzhia on tuesday. en wouldone person killed a one injured. infrastructure facilities were damaged and a third missile exploded in the air. and we've got much more of our breaking news coverage just
1:27 am
ahead. for now though, i want to send it back to max foster who is in london and following the other top stories for today. >> indeed. and we're looking at twitter of course, elon musk is set to acquire one the most influential social media platforms. why this takeover is already ruffling feathers. kitchen? sorted. hot tub, why not? and of course, puppy-friendly. we don't like to say perfect, but it's pretty perfect., booking.yeah.
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
1:31 am
a $44 billion deal between the world's richest man and one of the top social media platforms. elon musk is now set to buy twitter saying that his goal is to bolster free speech and unlock the company's tremendous potential, but many are worried about the changes musk could make to the platform. and claire a bastian is sebastian is joining us with more. he is talking about making it the platform for free speech and taking away advertising. so what do you think. >> we have a lot of questions and not too many answers. but in terms of what he said, he gave quite an illuminating interview after he announced his initial bid for the platform. he said he wants more
1:32 am
transparency on the promotion and demotion of tweets that the platform does. he says that he favors a lighter touch when it comes to content moderation, and if there is a gray area around a tweet, his instinct would be to let the tweet exist. and in terms of banning people from the platform like we've seen with people who are known to promote extremist content and even former president donald trump says that he favors time-outs rather than bans. so that has raised the question of what will happen to the account of donald trump. trump himself said even if invited back, he would not want to return to twitter, he'd rather go on his own platform called truth social. >> and we can't ever under estimate musk because he's taken on huge industries like cars and the payment system and won. so it will be interesting what he does. but this debate about freedom of speech is interesting because mod indication is largely there to allow freedom of speech, so
1:33 am
people who feel bullied by trolls. >> this is the concern i think that if he dials back too much on content moderation, then you get a free for all, you get hate speech abuse, pornography, all those kinds of things. but as you say, don't underestimate elon musk. they were naysayers where no one thought that he could produce a mass market electric car and he is now the market leader in this. so he has proved the thin a thai sayers wrong. and jack dorsey said to him and the current ceo, thank you both for getting the company out of an impossible situation. he said this is the right path. i believe it with all my heart. so i think that some people are cheering the situation, others are worried about what comes next. >> he is a divisive figure but very successful. still ahead, buildings levels, bodies li littering the streets. and we're live in ukraine after the break.

1:38 am
with volodymyr zelenskyy. meanwhile, in the besieged city of mariupol, there is still no safe way out for hundreds of civilians sheltering inside the azovstal steel plant. on monday ukraine said that it was unable to establish humanitarian corridors to evacuate the plant and conditions inside are desperate. this video appears to show women and children sheltering in an underground bunker. one woman says that the children haven't seen sunlight in more than a month. and food and water are running out. earlier cnn spoke with a pastor from mariupol who says that his city now resembles a huge cemetery. >> can you imagine your american city like new york for example, and if somebody came to your city, destroy it completely the
1:39 am
city where you was born, when they will kill thousands and thousands of people, children, women, old people. and they will tell for all world we are just saving people here. what is that? what is that? h how it's possible is this but they did it, we tell people we are savers, we save people here. we told them please don't save us. we didn't need russian soldier there. mariupol, what was one of the best city in my country. amazing city. even last eight years, my city built, they remodeling -- they built so many beautiful place. but now all of this garbage.

1:44 am
a treasure trove of text messages is providing a look at donald trump's final days in the white house, including plans for overturning the 2020 election. and reaction to the january 6 capitol riot. jamie gangel reports. >> reporter: cnn has now obtained all 2319 text messages that president donald trump's then chief of staff mark meadows has voluntarily handed over to the january 6 committee. the texts provide the most revealing picture to date of what members of trump's inner circle, supporters and republican lawmakers were doing behind the scenes in the weeks between the election and january 20th. the texts include messages from
1:45 am
trump's family, from his children, white house officials, january 6 rally organizer, sean hannity from fox news, and even people like the ceo of my pillow mike lindell. in addition, there are text messages with more than 40 current and former republican members of congress including marjorie taylor greene whose first text on january 6 was actually surprising. she sent this to meadows asking for help. quote, mark, i was just told that there is an active shooter on the first floor of the capitol. please tell the president to calm people. this isn't the way to solve anything. there were also other new messages that were coming into meadows on january 6, once again these are people who are inner circle trump supporters, and they all have one thing in
1:46 am
common. they are pleading for president trump to act. from mick mulvaney, former chief of staff, quote, mark, he needs to stop this now. can i do anything to help? from congressman william timmens, the president needs to stop this asap. and from reince priebus, former chief of staff, in big capital letters, tell them to go home with three expracticlanation po. there are many more thousands. but the bottom line to keep in mind is this is what mark meadows turned over voluntarily to the january 6 committee. so you have to wonder what is in the rest of the documents. jamie gangel, cnn, washington. the u.s. federal judge is keeping in place trump era covid restrictions along the u.s./mexico border. the measures allow border authorities to turn migrants

south korea is calling for lasting peace on the korean peninsula just hours after their latest military parade. kim jung-un vowed to strengthen and develop his nuclear force, quote, at the fastest possible speed. all this comes after a flurry of missile tests by north korea this year and warnings from south korea and the u.s. that pyongyang could renuclear weapons tests for the first time in five years. blake essig is joining us with more. you are watching the parade. what clues did that give you? >> reporter: well, you know, north korea is highly anticipated military parade celebrating the founding of its army was held last night, definitely something that we've been keeping an eye on. it was expected to be held at some point this month given all the different anniversaries that
1:54 am
north korea was celebrating. and according to north korean state-run television, kim jung-un and his wife were there to see it. kim dressed in a white military suit. also delivered a speech not only saying that north korea would continue to strengthen and develop its nuclear force, but that north korea's armed forces are fully prepared for any fight. kim's comments and last night's parade took place as south korea welcomes a new president who takes office early next month. the president-elect has pledged a hard line against north korea which he calls the main enemy of south korea. in the past these parades have been used to unveil updates to its missile arsenal and it is reported that the longest icb machi met launches were part of that celebration. unclear every piece of military
1:55 am
hardware that was displayed, but watchers expect that the parade also featured weapons from kim jung-un's wish list including hypersonic drive vehicles, underwater launch nuclear weapons and a 15,000 kilometer intercontinental ballistic missile. they have either been tested or are in the process of being developed. so far this year pyongyang has conducted about a dozen weapons tests. and based on last night's speech and the biden administration's more muted response in dealing with north korea, there are no signs that north korea will slow down its military development. in fact south korean military officials have reported for weeks now that the north has been working to restore tunnels at the main nuclear test site, a sign that tests could be coming our way, the first since 2017. >> we'll be watching. thank you for joining us from tokyo. and the boston celtics are
