three are dead and a fourth is hospitalized in the u.s. first ed shea ran and now rocking out with bono and the edge. you are in the "cnn newsroom." ten weeks after the start of the war in ukraine the highest ranking official from moscow yet is visiting mariupol. ahead of russia's victory day tomorrow the foreign minister said peaceful life is beginning in mariupol. survivors of the bombing of an eastern ukraine school are talking about the experience with a man describing being slammed down by a slab of concrete as the blast rained debris on people inside that
building. tlo at least 60 people are feared dead there. on day of remembrance ukraine's president is urging the world not to forget. >> translator: this year we say never again differently. we hear never again differently. it sounds painful, cruel but without an exclamation but with a question mark. you say never again? tell ukraine about it. >> jill biden spent part of the day on an unannounced trip to ukraine visiting the ukrainian first lady. arlette, this is the first time an american first lady visited a war zone since 2008 with laura bush. >> reporter: yeah. it was a powerful moment crossing into ukraine to meet with the first lady of ukraine. the two women had exchanged
correspondence and jill biden wanted to make the trip today to show the solidarity. they met at a converted schoolhousing displaced ukrainian citizens and the first lady talked about why she wanted to make this trip. >> i wanted to come on mother's day. i thought it was important to show the ukrainian people that this war has to stop. and in war has been brutal and that the people of the united states stand with the people of ukraine. >> reporter: so first lady biden taking on that diplomatic role as the u.s. is continuing to try to show solidarity with ukraine as the russian war wages on. >> president biden and other g it is 7 leaders met visht julily
today. >> reporter: the g7 leaders got together to try to show sol darely with ukraine. you can see president biden participated in this meeting from his home in delaware. canadian prime minister trudeau was in the room in ukraine with zelenskyy as this call went on. in addition to talking about military assistance and economic assistance to send to ukrainian the leaders also talked about the next raft of sanctions to impose against russia. the u.s. unveiling a new sanctions plan. it is going to ban u.s. advertising for those stations. the sanctions are prohibiting u.s. companies providing management services to russians.
the goal is to try to ensure that they don't rep russians evade sanctions. the u.s. is placing exports controls on the industrial sector. also after this meeting the leaders released a statement saying they would be phasing out or banning russian oil and gas. the u.s. banned imports but this is significant given that the dependence the european countries have on russian energy products. they did xhcommit to phasing ou russian oil and gas from the countries but the u.s. and allies trying to have a full show of force today with solidarity with ukraine especially as russia is expected to celebrate victory day. pamela? >> all right. thank you so much. u.s. diplomats are back in
kyiv. the acting u.s. ambassador and the team arrived in the capital city this morning. our sara sidner joins me from kyiv. how big of a step is this to reopening the official embassy? >> reporter: it is a step. you will recall that the u.s. announced to close its embassy here in kyiv february 14th, ten days before the russians invaded ukraine. we were there when the top u.s. diplomat came back to the embassy, the acting ambassador there and the team returned to kyiv today. they were here to commemorate victory day, the day the western allies defeated nazi germany but the arrival does indicate they
are another step closer to fully opening the u.s. embassy. right now it is not the case. >> this is not an official opening of the embassy. so no this isn't sort of the official permanent reopening. but we of course will continue to work towards that and hope to officially open the embassy soon. >> reporter: that was a promise that was given by u.s. officials to ukrainian officials but as this press conference was about to get underway there was a raid siren that went off and that delayed everything. there is still a war going on but not seeing it in kyiv and the embassy being very careful as to not give an exact date when it might fully reopen.
pam? >> thank you so much live in kyiv. tomorrow russia will celebrate the anniversary of the victory over the nazis and unconducting an unprovoked war in ukraine. i want to bring in mark kirk land to talk about it. you have the first lady in ukraine. the american diplomats starting to return to ukraine. what kind of message does it send to vladimir putin? >> today's mother's day in the united states and the european nations. when a country is at war mothers and children are especially concerned about the soldier's safety. my wife has an expression that
soldiers wear the ribbons on did uniforms but spouses wear the medals on their heart. i'm sure it touched mothers in russia who don't know what's going on with their soldiers. are they dead or wounded? i think it is a powerful message to be in ukraine and the other eastern european countries today. >> i think about the moms who had to flee ukraine raising the kids alone while their husbands are fighting. don't know if they're alive or dead. it is important to remember the women on this mother's day. i want to talk about again looking ahead to russia's victory day celebration tomorrow. moscow will conduct a flyover with the doomsday plane that would protect top russian
officials in a nuclear war. first time the plane is flown since in the parade since 2010. ho how should the biden administration view that? >> this is another attempt at an escalation or a bluff or a threat. but it's interesting because air force one serves as the president's c-2 aircraft in case of a security event in the country so the so-called doomsday plane flying as part of a parade, if i'm a russian civilian it would scare the hell out of it. a doomsday that allows putin to escape seconds a message to the russian people not just the bluff to the world but he is serious about this. why should he live when the rest
could be the victims of a retaliatory response with nuclear weapons? it attempts to soend a signal bt there are other messages to send to the russian population beginning to see a reflection of how bad the war is going and give an indication of what they don't want to be in for next. >> speaking to the g7 leaders zelenskyy said the aim is for russia to have a complete withdrawal from ukraine. of course that would be his hope but how realistic is that? >> yeah. that's all in the mind of president putin and we have seen that his mind is conflicteded. not really taking a lot of good advice from the advisers and caught up in narcissism and
insecurities in terms of state of russia today and worse with defeats on the battlefield. he has to know how poorly his military is performing in the fight. i don't think he's going to completely withdraw. he is going to look for face saving measures. i'm sure the administration is attempting to figure out what would happen next. so see that as an end state. he'll find a way to garner the ukrainian territory. we don't know how much and how and if he would end the war on the feeling that he could do that. >> good to see you today. thank you so much for your perspective and time tonight. >> happy mother's day to you. >> thank you so much. by day he treats wounded ukrainians. by night a pop star lifting the

but in the morning or yesterday we came to kyiv and just to sing a song with him, like it was like an improvisation. and i can't -- i still can't believe that it happened. >> i'm sure you're still processing this. i heard you were just getting if two-hour naps here and there. u2 posted that president zelenskyy invited the band to show solidarity with the ukrainian people. what did it mean to have them come to kyiv and perform with them? must have been surreal. >> you know, this irish bravery guys are incredible. and it is so powerful signal to
ukrainian people and to whole world that they stand by us. that they support ukraine. and it is so big pleasure for us. and of course we are very appreciative for this. and the main -- bono told me that before the concert started that, man, you can say everything you want. you can apply to everyone you want and let me talk to the world by standing nearby of him. i had an opportunity to talk to the world and asked the world
leaders to extract, to help the president and the diplomacy to extract the ukrainian soldiers from mariupol. it was not just song. it was not just a song. it was also my opportunity to talk to the world. and it was also a rescue for us. >> we like having you on the show to give you another opportunity to do that and we started this conversation talking about mother's day. we had your wife on with you. she is in the united states helping to raise your kids while you fight on the battlefield. just talk about what it means to you that your wife is essentially a single mother right now so you can focus on the fight to defend ukraine. >> the war interrupted our

first test in the new political fight over abortion rights this week. democrats plan to bring a bill to codify the right to an abortion. >> this is no longer an abstract exercise. this is the real deal. everyone's eyes are on them so we can hope and we must have this vote. every senator must show where they stand. >> the effort is expected to fail. democrats do not have the vote but they hope it will galvanize the party's base. here with me to discuss is republican strategist alice stewart and democratic strategist maria cordona. we will have a civil conversation. we think that that is so important on an issue that people are passionate about but you can have a civil discussion about it and you ladies will show us how.
alice, let's get to the new cnn poll finding that a majority of americans approval of a right to abortion. how do you expect the vote to go? >> the big question this week on that vote will be the democrats. what is joe manchin going to do? what is kristen sinema going to vote? we'll see republicans stand up for life because that's what we've been doing. the surprise announcement and leak of the spupreme court of te approval. republicans have worked hard to
galvanize the base behind this pro life issue and appointing justices that look at the constitution and that's what happened here. i see this began valuizing the social conservatives fighting for this day and republicans as a whole on the policies that democrats are currently implementing that are not working for the country. >> this is more helpful to republicans or democrats? >> no. not many republicans are really standing in to really talk about this issue in a way that says this is going to really work for us. they have been shy talking about this. when you ask about the issue they shy away saying, no, we believe it will be the economy and inflation. they don't want to talk about this. i think they see the polls. the majority of people in this country from the time that roe
v. wade became the decision and the law of the land support the fact that women should have the right to make decisions over their own bodies. what this will legal opinion will do is mobilize and galvanize democrats, independent women, suburban women, men, latinos, african americans, everyone that believe that should be the decision to make for women. with a mobilization standpoint i think it is something that republicans are concerned about. they see how we talk about this because the fact of the matter is this decision if it does happen, it is still a draft decision and will take away a huge right that women had to have agency over their bodies. we will become inferior citizens to men and become second class citizens in the country.
i talk about my daughter. 15 years old and my son and shutter to think they grow up in a country where she doesn't have the right to make a decision over her own reproductive future epa my son if ever in a situation with his wife or girlfriend to make a decision like that, that is out of their hands. to me this is going to be the focus of mobilization for democrats because it takes for the first time a right that women have had in this country for 50 years based on medieval legal philosophy. from the justices focused on this on the decision and that i think is going to be a huge mobilizing factor for us. >> with all due respect, republicans are happy to talk about this. this is an issue that galvanized republicans for decades and not
something off the table. the only concern is moving into the general election we'll talk about this but the real issue is that turnout voters are the pock pocketbook issues. we'll talk about the crime and the economy and the border. if this is the will of the people and a polls show they are then put it in the hands of the people and take it out of the hands of justices and into the hands of state legislatures. democracy is best served and reflective of the people and that's why state legislatures are in a much better position. >> what's terrifying about what alice is saying because she is saying that this is a decision put in the hands of the people. i agree. we should have been focused on
codifying roe versus wade. we have been asleep at the switch on that. i think that it will be a huge wake-up call but this indicates the fear that so many that are looking at this decision are saying, wait a minute. they won't stop there. this is under the guise of liberty and they are essentially saying that that decision urntd privacy doesn't exist so what about same-sex marriage? what about the use of con stra septemberives? where's that going to go? will republicans say that those issues should be put in the hands of the people? what is the supreme court there to do? they say that this -- they want
a strict interpretation of the constitution. that would not give black people the definition of humanity and the women the right to vote and that is why this is so concerning and what democrats will continue to focus on. >> i want to take a step back, too. everyone is so passionate about this. unfortunately people sometimes are expressing it and really horrific ways. you shared a tweet about the ways that you have been treated for sharing your opinions. you tweeted several -- a bit of feedback. edited for public consumption and then you can see on the screen. i don't think that this is helpful to be demonizing the other side for their closely
held beliefs, philosophy on this. what's it been like for both of you? >> difficult. it is hurtful. i also truly believe this is the right position as a pro life social conservative working on this for decades. i have worked on five presidential campaigns. this is a key issue the entire time. no guy sitting in the base m calling me names will change my mind and behind a cat picture on twitter makes me believe something different and most important way to have the conversations with respect and understanding that friends like maria we disagree on the issue and i don't believe we should have abortion at all except in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother. that's where we begin. where do we agree and expand from that?
>> you shouldn't be hateful. >> absolutely. none of that is okay. i adore my friend alice. sometimes i get hate for my friendship with alice. every time i talk about this i'm called baby killer because of my belief and i'm a practicing catholic woman going against the church because i believe the decisions should be made between the woman, the family, the doctor and really just her god and that is something to continue to talk about and the majority of the american people are with us on this. it is a step back for how women are treated in this country. pam, if men were the ones with the ability to have babies in this country that there would be an abortion clinic on every corner of every street next to
the starbucks. >> you set the example over an issue that you are so passionate about. we'll be right back. >> thank you. until, energizizer ultimate lithium. who wants a cupcake? ththe number one longest-lastg aa battery. yay! case closed. does daily stress leave you feeling out of sync? new dove men stress-relief body wash... with a plant-based aptogen, helps alleviate stress on skin. soou can get back in sync. new do men. a restorative shower for body and mind.

fallen five weeks in a row. cnn's alison kosik joins me now. what should we be on the lookout for monday? >> hi, pamela. first of all, we're look at futures, watching futures before the opening bell tomorrow, and they are indicating for a sharply lower open. keep in mind we do have a long way to go before the opening bell, over ten hours. a lot can change overnight, but that's the picture as it stands right now. as for what are the drivers this week for wall street? think the continued speculation of what the fed's next move will be in regards to interest rate hikes. you know, what has been the focus and what will continue to be the focus for investors is the pace of these interest rate hikes and the size of the interest rate hikes. we know that the fed raised a key interest rate a half a percent last week, and, you know, the fed chief jay powell, he took off the table an even bigger rate hike meaning 75 base points at three-quarters of a percent, but there's a lot of skepticism whether or not the fed chief can really stick to that, because inflation is running so hospital we're seeing inflation at levels we haven't
seen since the 1980s, and we are certainly feeling it, when we go to the grocery store or we if to fill up our tank at the gas station. we're seeing all of that inflation, and so a lot of the volatility that we're seeing in the market is just a lot of nervousness about how the fed is going to really fight inflation and get a handle on inflation. will the fed be too aggressive and raise rates by too much and cause the economy to go into a recession? that's the big worry for investors right now, so they are really watching the fed closely which brings me to this second driver of the week, and that is -- that is wednesday. we're going to get a big inflation report called cpi, the consumer price inflation report. it's prices at the consumer level. this is one of these kynes of reports that the fed focuses on that influences their decision-making in these -- these rate hikes, so everyone is really going to be closely watching these inflation numbers from april. if they come in too hot, pamela, then we could see the volatility real continue in the stock market. if they come in more moderate,
we could see a little stabilization in the stock market. pamela? >> all right. so, you know, you have the fed raising interest rates, and this week's jobs report. we're seeing the powers at be trying to fine tune how to tackle inflation. is there anything else that can be done, or should u.s. consumers just be prepared to bear, you know, get red for some more pain for the rest of the year? >> yeah. many analysts say, yeah, hunker down. get red for inflation to last much longer than we could really expect. it's really questionable whether the government can do much more than what's already being done. i mean, the government is really limited. i mean, you've got the fed hiking rates. that's to tap the brakes on the economy, and, you know, a lot of this is already real baked into the system, you know. during the pandemic, we had all that stimulus into the economy. the fed put all this liquidity into the economy as well so all of that is baked in, and all that money, pamela, has to just work its way out of the system. >> all right. alison kosik, thank you so much. tonight, an all-new searching for italy, stanley tucci
