and start enjoying rewards like these, and so much more in the xfinity app! and don't miss jurassic world:dominion in theaters june 10th. >> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. hello and a very warm welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and right around the world. i'm isa soares coming to you live from lviv, ukraine, and we are following breaking news of russia's war on ukraine. and just ahead right here on the show. >> translator: the shelling was so strong, it kept hitting near us. at the exit of the bomb shelter on the top few steps, you could breathe. >> the courage is breath taking and has inspired the world,
mobilizing a degree of solidarity. >> translator: there was not a day we did not try to find a solution that would save our people. for the first time there were two days of real cease-fire. >> translator: none of the objectives are -- they are trying to scare ukrainians. they are trying to scare the word. ukrainians are not afraid and our president and all residents are baltimore ravensly defending our country. welcome to the show, everyone. it is 11:00 a.m. here in ukraine. where there is hope that evacuation from the besieged city of mariupol could resume soon. according to local >officials said a convoy will leave the steel plant. it is believed hundreds more are still trapped inside that sprawling industrial complex. many have been stranded there
for weeks, two months or so, and the russian attacks to be honest, completely decimated the city you can see there with that footage. food and water supplies we have been told are running dangerously low. despite the dire conditions, evacuations had to be paused on sunday night. ukraine's military said shelling continued. it says russian forces are pressing forward in eastern ukraine, and likely gearing up for an attack on slovansk in the donetsk region. we have seen shelling from donetsk in the north and the south. this as the escape continued. southern ukraine witnessed hundreds of people fleeing their homes in russian occupied
kherson. they spotted 120 vehicles making their way north to ukrainian held territory. they are across the country covering the story. vetika sud is covering the talks. all eyes on mariupol, a glimmer of hope that the rest of those who are being hold up for two months will be able to get out. >> and sometimes no news is good news, isa. yesterday we heard precious little news. the deputy prime minister apologized for that. she's been leading the charge trying to negotiate these corridors. she did not want to do anything to jeopardize the success of this operation. she singled out the red cross and the united nations. the secretary-general had
meetings. a commander inside the plant says there are 200 civilians about that need to be evacuated today so they are hoping that cease-fire will hold. as for the people who were able to get out yesterday, for some of them it's been more than two months since they felt the sun on their face. broad daylight and a row of buses wait for these war weary ukrainian civilians. the long awaited humanitarian corridor to evacuate shell shocked people in mariupol opened briefly sunday. about 100 people left the ruins of the steel plant before the operation was paused. it could be a lifeline for those wanting to escape the besieged city which has been pulverized by russian artillery in recent weeks. it is estimated that hundreds of civilians are still stiuck in bunkers of the steel plant
enduring days of relentless bombing with no food, water or medicine. they are coordinating a safe passage operation which will transport evacuees. ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy said it took heaven and earth to make this day happen. after talks to open this corridor repeatedly broke down. >> translator: after many weeks of negotiations, after many attempts, among them meetings, calls and countries, proposals, finally, there is not a day we did not try to find a solution that would save our people. today for the first time in all the days of the war, this via the vital corridor has started working. >> reporter: this evacuee, part of the u.n. convoy, says she is glad to be above ground. she spent weeks in the bomb shelter and the attacks were terrifying.
>> translator: the shelling was so strong it kept hitting near us. at the exit of the bomb shelter, on the top few steps you could breathe as there was not enough oxygen. i was afraid to even walk out and breathe some fresh air. >> reporter: russia's defense ministry also says evacuations are taking place in mariupol. it says 80 civilians were transported from the complex to a russian-controlled area. ukraine says there are hopes more evacuations will continue monday. but there are reports of shelling once again in the city. >> and, scott, one of the commanders inside that steel plant was saying there are about 600 or so soldiers that have been wounded. do we know whether they are part of this evacuation plan? >> initially we had been told 600. now the number being quoted is 500, not that it makes it that much better. they haven't given a detailed explanation of who is included. there are civilians coming out. there are no indication the wounded soldiers are part of
this package. we didn't get very promising news from the russian foreign ministry yesterday. he did an interview where he said kyiv, and specifically president zelenskyy, are really pushing this idea of getting those wounded soldiers out of there as part of this evacuation because he says that there are foreign mercenaries and extremists among them. there is no evidence that's the case. obviously it is impossible to know without being on the ground. right now it is not looking good. >> we don't know the fate of the ones that are unharmed, the soldiers unharmed or whether they will surrender at all. let me ask you about what has happened. what is the latest there? >> there were two explosions early this morning. you recall this comes after a fire in that -- at a military installation yesterday which comes after last week, another fire at a weapons depot. the ukrainians didn't directly take responsibility for that, but they might as well have. an adviser to the president said karma is a very cruel thing. and the russians have previously
warned that any strikes on russian soil will be met with a swift response. they are saying do not test russia's patience on this, but, of course, whoever is responsible for these, it continues to be a pattern that we've seen over really the last two months or so. >> scott, appreciate it. keep us posted on the mariupol >> vark wags. very important. scott mclean there. now, the refugee crisis from this war is worsening by the day. the u.n. says almost 5 1/2 million people have now fled ukraine since the invasion began in late february. more than half of them are children. that is according to unicef. the vast majority of refugees continue to head west, with more than 3 million crossing into poland. i want to bring in james elder, spokesperson for unicef. very good morning to you, james. thanks for taking the time to speak to us. let me start if i could on the evacuations we're seeing from mariupol. finally we're getting a
breakthrough, expecting evacuation to continue today. of course, we're seeing women and children coming out. they have been hold up two months or so. what are you hearing about the evacuations and the expectation for today, of course? hi, big expectations. apocalyptic conditions in mariupol. every person i have spoken to that's come out of there shares the same ghastly experience of living underground, of being terrified, of seeing people injured, children for two months now have often just been hiding and sheltering and living in unimaginable circumstances, and coming out in dribs and drabs. today we really hoped to start seeing bus loads of civilians coming out. that will be, as you said, s saparichya, an hour from you. water, medical supplies, counselors, the situation is really important.
our duty of care doesn't stop just by keeping children alive. there is such a degree of trauma on these kids. we want to be that first response when they get out of that hell hole. >> yeah, and we heard from president zelenskyy about 100 or so people were evacuated. you have teams on the ground in saparichya. scott mclane was saying the youngest child, six months, spent its life underground. give us a sense of the teams evacuated from the steel plant. >> very similar. i go back and forth with saparichya every day. ilya who is 7 or 8. living underground, seeing people come with wounds of war. it's a little boy. hearing bombardment, seeing the stress. at this point the adults can no longer pretend there is not a
horrendous scenario around him. he sees people come with injuries and lives in that, shares food knowing there is not enough food. there has not been enough food. he's told very clearly there is not enough water and time again he's told there might be an evacuation that didn't happen. now, has happened, he'll go to a safe house, we'll get medical support for him. there are hundreds of children, whether in the steel plant or mariupol, hundreds of children we fear in this fate, and many u under siege in the city. it keeps trapping kids. we're going to see that because of the indiscriminate attacks that are ongoing. >> james, talk to us about the wounds of war for these children. i know your teams are offering counseling. how are you explaining, what are you saying to these children in regards to what is happening? >> unfortunately, they know what's happening now, you know.
many ukrainian children, isa, are acutely aware the world is unstable, it's unpredictable, it can be a terrible place. this has been their experience. that loss, that absolute loss of basic safety for a child, that can have catastrophic effects on their emotional well-being, on their learning, their social development. so we know that because we've experienced with children elsewhere from yemen to syria, that's the lesson they have had to endure. it's medical support, and trained counselors. unicef, whether it's cash assistance, hygiene and help kits, their moms and dads are first line responders. it focuses on parents as well, try and give parents support because they're the ones as well who have department with incredible trauma and they're the ones we hope can be the front line support. but at the same time, unicef comes in with psychologists,
with counselors, medical help, a range of things which is critical and heart warming. it's triage, isa, because the bombardments continue. >> yeah, and that's exactly what i was going to ask you, james. it's wonderful to see the hundred or so civilians, mostly women and children coming out of the steel plant, of course. a reminder to our viewers, many families and children will be displaced displaced and what the future holds for them. tell us what unicef is doing for schooling, what is next for these families? >> there isn't a day unicef isn't packing a truck with hygiene, school in a box, help kits, surgical kits to get to places in need. we had such brave ukrainians on
the ground who had relationships with municipalities, with doctors, with volunteers. we're able to go, pickup a phone, we pack a truck and go. i was watching colleagues do this all of yesterday. it's so essential. i went to a house, three families have all descended, 12 people, they all had homes. now they're living in a shared space. they need all the support we speak of. it's a daily basis. it's front line work, isa. it's not easy. last week exactly on this day there was of a team that went to krematorsk. it killed 50 people including another couple children. it's difficult front line work, but they're brave and they do it hour by hour. >> and we are incredibly grateful, james, to you and your team for all the brave work that they are doing every single day. james, let's keep in touch. i know you are meeting, you and your team are meeting people
from saparichya for evacuations. appreciate it. meantime, russia has claimed any soldiers who do remain in mariupol steel plant would be treated humanely. cnn's matt rivers found evidence to the contrary. he has the exclusive story of one ukrainian fighter captured and later killed by the russians and a warning, this story contains disturbing images as well as content. >> reporter: russian propaganda with a clear message to the last remaining defenders of mariupol. the video says, we guarantee that we will save your lives and we will follow international laws to guarantee humane treatment. such will be the case, says the voice over, with this man. captured ukrainian soldier. the 25-year-old member of the defense force was captured, the
last remaining city in the city, it indicated an area north of the plant. a russian soldier detailing how they will be treated. as you are captured, he says, we will treat you with honor and understanding. these videos were published on april 20th. five days later, donsvonik was dead. this picture of his face hauntingly lifeless was sent to his mother by officials in russian-held donetsk, she tells us. we redialed the numbers and were hung up on once identified as journalists. to confirm who he was, they sent a picture of his chest with the tattoo seen when i was alive in russian propaganda videos. when you first saw that message, what went through your mind? >> nothing. i just screamed. there was nothing. no thoughts. >> reporter: we met his mother
near where she's staying in kyiv. she fled mariupol herself just two weeks ago alongside the rest of her family. her sister-in-law also reeling from the photo of her nephew. >> translator: i still have that photograph in front of my eyes. it's constantly in front of my eyes. >> reporter: the more she confirmed he was dead and his body was picked up sunday, cnn can't confirm how he died, but we know he died after being taken into custody either by russians or russian-backed separatist forces. do you think the russians killed your son? >> yes, i'm sure. >> reporter: for weeks cnn has heard from soldiers they will not surrender for fear of being executed. their ranks only hardened that
sentiment. does what happened to him only reinforce the notion that the soldiers that are there are not going to surrender to the russians? >> don't you think it confirms their fear and actually expectations what russia did today? this is a war crime. >> reporter: we asked vonek's mother if she was angry with the russians, her answer, honest. >> translator: i only feel pain, pain and emptiness. that's it. >> reporter: matt rivers, cnn, kyiv. only yesterday i spoke to one man that told us em are on the front lines. for breaking news coverage, let's go back to chrissy in london. >> thanks very much, isa. it's devastating what ukrainian families are going through.
what one health expert calls a now predictable summer surge of covid-19 cases across the southern states. from the white house coronavirus task force coordinator deborah birx. health officials need to make it clear protection from the coronavirus wanes over time and precaution should be taken with vulnerable or immunocompromised people. birx said she is closely following data out of south africa which is currently indicating an upward trend in cases. >> each of these surges are about four to six months apart. that tells me that natural immunity wanes enough in the general population after four to six months that a significant surge is going to occur again. this is what we have to be prepared for in this country. we should be preparing right now for a potential surge in the summer across the southern united states because we saw it in 2020 and we saw it in 2021.
>> the daily number of covid deaths and new local cases in shanghai declined slightly for the third concircative day. according to the latest government numbers, shanghai reported 32 deaths and more than 7300 new local cases on sunday. meanwhile, the chinese capital city of beijing reported 41 new cases on sunday. nationwide there were more than 7700 new cases reported. that is according to the national health commission. cnn's anna core in is joining me live from hong kong with more on this. anna, after a month of lockdown, we are hearing that shanghai is moving to ease restrictions in certain districts. in a city of 25 million, how will that work? and do we know how many people this is actually going to affect? >> reporter: well, christina, we know it will impact about 7 million people. but other than that, we don't have any more details. the reads being is we've contacted people living in these six districts who say they are still cooped up in their
apartment buildings. they are yet to be allowed out. we understand from authorities that once people release, they can travel around their neighborhoods, their districts, but that is the extent of it. for people who have been inside their homes for the past month, more than a month, we have to remember, this lockdown in shanghai, you know, the economic engine of china, came at the end of march. we are now in may. christina, i spoke to one resident in shanghai who has been in lockdown since before then. her neighborhood went into lockdown since before the official lockdown. six, seven weeks in her apartment, the only time she is allow today go out is where the pcr testing takes place. she said she is suffering from depression. there is no doubt about if. she stops looking at the news, no longer monitors the social media fees. she stopped counting the days.
there is no end in sight for her. she said the small joys in her life are receiving food deliveries from restaurants that have opened up in her neighborhood. compare that to what is going on in beijing, the nation's capital of 22 million people. yes, they have imposed bans on in-restaurant dining, school bans, as of thursday they will stop people from entering public places unless they have a negative pcr test. they are doing everything in their power to ensure life continues as normal in beijing so they don't have to have the city wide lockdown. >> i'm sure they are keeping an eye on shanghai. anna corinne from hong kong. south korea will lift its outdoor mandate today. it will stay in place for sporting events and rallies for groups more than 50 people. they could no longer ignore the
inconvenience. the newly elected president opposes the move saying it is premature. south korea's daily case count is well below peak from mid-march. now, in ukraine, the lviv national opera is a place of solace amidst the raging war. ♪ ahead, how ballet dancers are trying to help mend their nation's grief and reclaim a sense of normalcy. ♪
me give you the update. the convoy supported by the u.n. and red cross will attempt to leave the besieged city today. it is unclear whether those trapped in the steel plant will be able to leave in the hours ahead. on sunday ukraine's president says more than 100 people including women and children were evacuated from the complex after a period of calm allowed the operation to move forward. but by sunday night, though, shelling had resumed with one ukrainian commander inside the plant calling it a turbulent night. meantime, the ukrainian military now says russian forces are pressing their offensive toward a key town in the donetsk region. heavy shelling of ukrainian defenses is being reported. we got these images within the last hour. polish president had a meeting with house speaker nancy pelosi as you can see there. this follows her unannounced visit to kyiv on saturday with a
democratic congressional delegation. that made pelosi the highest ranking official to meet with zelenskyy since the russian invasion more than two months ago. during that stop we heard her tell mr. zelenskyy, ukraine's fight is a fight for everyone. she also reiterated the u.s. is committed to support ukraine until the fight is done. those were her words. now, israel has summoned the russian archipelago over comments made by russian foreign minister sergei lavrov. the israeli foreign minister said it had jewish blood, anti-semitic and unforgivable. cnn's hadas joins me. the remarks are raising eyebrows. what else did he say and how is it being received there? >> reporter: yeah, isa, these are shocking remarks lavrov made with an italian news channel that russia is de-natzifying
ukraine. hitler had jewish blood. the chair of the holocaust museum said the claims are absurd and dangerous and that hitler had jewish blood is dangerous. he said the remarks are unforgivable and outrageous statement as well as a historical terror error. jews did not attack themselves. he said he hopes it will spur israel into finally joining western sanctions against russia may be disappointed. although israel has condemned russia's invasion of ukraine, they condemned russia of war crimes and sending humanitarian aid to ukraine. israel has been trying to
maintain a sort of delicate diplomatic balance between the two countries. both in order to act as mediator, the israeli prime minister naftali bennett has been speaking with zelenskyy and putin and because of security concerns. they are concerned about the hundreds of thousands of jews both in russia and ukraine, and because of israel's northern border with syria. israeli essentially considers the border with syria a border with russia because israel coordinates with russia to keep the calm in syria because of the military presence here. while the remarks are causing a big zistir and the ambassador h been summoned, i don't expect the position to change, isa. >> hannah schol joining us. the doors were close in february. this week it reopened doors for ballet performance. i was fortunate enough to be
there. here's a look at how art tries to heal in the shadow of war. away from the front lines, an army of artists begin the process of mending this nation's grief. gently repairing the hurt brought on by war. at lviv's national opera, everyone has a part to play. tonight's gisele ballet will be the first full performance since the theater closed its doors almost two months ago. as musicians dust off their instruments and as the audience starts to trickle in, >> translator: for us coming to the theater is a small part of our life which was there before the war. we are internally displaced from kyiv says julia. we had to come to lviv while there are hostilities. the artistic director tells me why they decided to open now.
we understand that light must defeat darkness, that life must defeat death, and the mission of the theater is to assert this. but the reminders of war are never too far away. >> dear guests, our event will be suspended in case of an air raid. >> reporter: only 300 seats were allowed to be sold tonight, the capacity of the opera's bomb shelter. still, it sold out. it is only minutes now until the curtain opens and you can feel the tension because this performance is extra special. for a few hours nothing else matters as the audience and i are transported to a world of love and beauty, playing gisele
tonight is 21-year-old irina. it feels great she tells me back in her dressing room, because dancing helps distract from what's happening. like many here her life has been shaken by war and the horrors of bucha where mass graves were recently found. my mom and grandmother survived occupation in bucha, she tells me. now she's in poland. dorina finds solace on the stage throwing herself into her character. all the negative emotions which accumulate for a long time, flow out, she tells me. a ca that are tick performance for both those on and off stage, offering comfort to those who
need it most. in the hope they can lift if briefly this nation's aching soul. the power of art and trying to heal, of course, the wounds of war. there was a powerful moment at new york's metropolitan opera over the weekend. have a look at this. that is ukrainian soprano who performed in the title role of turendal. then took her curtain call drapd in the ukrainian flag. she replaced russian star anna, who was cut from the performance after she -- after russia invaded ukraine. that does it for me. we have much more breaking news at the top of the hour. for now i want to send it back
