10:00 pm
i'm john vause. this is "cnn newsroom." coming up. moscow's victory day parade, with everything from goose-stepping soldiers to the latest intercontinental ba littlist missiles. the only thing missing, victory in ukraine. and we're just days away from a senate vote on an abortion bill. why nancy pelosi says she wants a strong republican party more than ever. and the son of a dictator well on his way to presidential victory in the philippines. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom." defiance and denial in moscow, where the shadow of war loomed large over russia's annual victory day ceremonies monday. russian president vladimir putin used the holiday to repeat baseless claims about nazis in
10:01 pm
ukraine. and accused the west of creating threats on russia's border. u.s. president joe biden says he's concerned that putin may feel backed into a corner with russian troops making little headway in ukraine and with no clear path to get out of the conflict. u.s. ambassador to the u.n. echoed those claims, telling cnn that clearly putin has no victory to celebrate and remarks show he's in denial, trying to rewrite history. many analysts have feared mr. putin would use the holiday to expand the war in ukraine or make a major announcement. instead, he stuck to a familiar script, aimed at selling the war domestically. cnn was there, tanks rolling across red square on monday. we have more there, but first, let's go to isa soares live in lviv, ukraine. >> thank you, john. well, even as fighting rages in eastern ukraine, russia now appears to be focusing on the southern port city of odesa.
10:02 pm
a barrage of missile strikes from fighter jets, ships, as well as submarines has hit the city in the past day. local officials report a shopping mall and two hotels have been struck with russian hypersonic missiles. at least one person is dead and several others are wounded. and this is the scene near ukraine's second-biggest city, kharkiv, and that is in the northeast. video posted on social media shows the aftermath of an attack on a civilian convoy that killed a number of people. you can see a baby stroller and an infant's car seat just among the wreckage there. it is not clear when the video was recorded, but authorities say they lost touch with the convoy on friday. and if i take you to mariupol in the south, ukraine's defense ministry says russian forces are mounting a storm offensive on the azovstal steel plant. ukrainian soldiers claim they are still holding out and video shows the country's blue and
10:03 pm
yellow flag flying atop the factory. cnn cannot confirm if it's still there. president zelenskyy says russia is waging war on ukraine's f philosophy of peace. have a listen. >> translator: it annoys them. it is unfamiliar to them. it scares them. it's essence is that we are free people who have their own path. today, we are waging war on this path and we will not give anyone a single piece of our land. >> well, joining me now from western ukraine is a member of ukrainian parliament. marion, thank you for taking the time to speak to us and very good morning to you. you know, on the same day that president putin laid roses honoring the cities from the second world war, including odesa, may i add, his forces pounded it. your thoughts this morning as we see more attacks on this port city? >> russia is currently trying to exploit the victory they had over nazis, but i think they are
10:04 pm
done with that argument. and not only because of the invasion, but because they have shown all the world their philosophy. so, after the recent claims after mr. lavrov that hitler was jewish and biggest anti-semites are jews themselves, i think we are done with any arguments from russia that they have some moral authority in victory over nazis. >> you know, what we really did hear and it happened during, you know, the hours, we were live on this show, we had a very defiant president putin pretty much justifying his actions in ukraine, marion, but also doubling down. listening to this, to what he said, how does ukraine, how does president zelenskyy prepare for what comes next? >> well, we know that their next phase of operation is to take all of the south of ukraine, at least that's what russian wants
10:05 pm
and that's what it will not get. and we know the next phase of the plan is to take another small country, which is moldova. transnistria, the breakaway area there, is being prepared for war. this is definitely the next step. but what we also saw in the military parade is that putin is scared. so, we were promised different things from the parade from declaration of war, but we also saw that russia was too scared to show its military airplanes in the skies, claying that there was supposedly bad weather, though we clearly saw putin speaking in the bright sun. >> yes, yes, that was -- that was very, very obvious indeed. you know, going back to odesa, look, we've seen the pictures of mariupol completely decimated now for months. do you think that ukrainian forces can hold onto the port city of odesa?
10:06 pm
>> of course. we will not only hold city of odesa, we will hold mykolaiv which is on the road of that offensive, and recently, russia was also forced to evacuate its forces from the island, which they attacked first, because already we have capabilities to destroy their ships even hundreds of kilometers away from the shore. there is absolutely no way they can approach the city and they will suffer defeat. >> they will suffer defeat. we've seen the strikes in the last few days. but if this continues to escalate, do you think there will be appetite at all from both sides for mitt call settlement or military settlement, stalemate, i should say? >> we will definitely not go for any stalemate. we can go for peace agreements, but russia has to return at least to the places where -- before they started their attack. the problem that russians also have, though they still have a
10:07 pm
lot of -- their troops on the ground are completely demoralized. they were promised, according to the military contracts, they have to get out of russia by 21st of may, so, i think that willen be a breaking point for many russian soldiers as russia has to break the contracts with them. >> maryan, great to get your perspective. >> thank you. cnn's matthew chance was at the victory parade in moscow and he has our report, but first, a reminder here, the kremlin has imposed strict laws limiting how journalists can talk about russia's presence in ukraine. >> reporter: this is how russia glorifies its embattled military. a spectacular display as a stony-faced commander in chief, president putin, inspects the troops paying such a high price for his special military
10:08 pm
operation in ukraine. from the stands, hundreds of invited guests, usually loyal officials and their families or foreign dig that tears, get a front seat. this time, for the first time in two decades of reporting russia and ukraine, i was invited, too. well, i can tell you, it's always a day of national pride here in russia, but this year, it's especially poignant here in the stands, viewing this spectacular display here in red square in the center of moscow, because this isn't just the fans commemorating the defeat of nazi germany in 1945 by soviet union and its allies, it is also, in fact, celebrating what the russian military is doing now, and these troops being celebrated and the weapons being shown here today are the same ones that are fighting in that
10:09 pm
horrific battle. against that backdrop, the armored columns rumbling over the cobbles of red square may seem less heroic. the intercontinental ballistic missiles even more sinister. but the kremlin leader drew repeated links between the sacrifices of the second world war, for which millions of soviet citizens were killed, and the battles currently being fought in ukraine. links ukrainians and their allies reject. >> translator: i am now addressing our armed forces and the militias of donbas. you are fighting for our motherland, for its future, so that no one forgets the lessons of the second world war, so that there is no place in the world for torturers, death squads, and nazis. >> reporter: but it is what was not said that was most conspicuous. >> there had been wide
10:10 pm
speculation putin would use this parade to formally declare war on ukraine and announce a general mobilization to bolster his stuttering forces there. but he did neither. ♪ conscious, perhaps, not all russians, many of whom gathered to commemorate victory day outside red square, were fully onboard with more bloodshed. "i'm in two minds," says this woman, "because i feel very sorry for the civilians suffering in ukraine, the children, the old people. we are at war," another says, "and i feel sadness for our boys dying on the front lines." when it comes to the second world war, what russia calls its great patriotic war, this country has traumatic memories. after the victory day parade,
10:11 pm
tens of thousands, led by president putin himself, marched through the streets of moscow, many carrying photographs of relatives who fought. putin held a picture of his own dad. but state media also broadcast images of people carrying recent photographs, too, of soldiers apparently killed this year. the effort to connect russia's current conflict with its past glories is relentless. matthew chance, cnn, moscow. >> important historical context there from matthew chance. and i'll have much more in the next hour. but first, i want to send it back to john vause in atlanta. john? >> isa, thank you so much. see you again soon. well, putin justified invading ukraine as a preemptive strike to prevent nato expansion. so, coming up, we report from the finland/russia border, as

you column? nato could grow larger with f finland and sweden expected to seek joining. cnn's international diplomatic editor nic robertson has our report. >> reporter: through the trees to the left, russia. to the right, remote finnish farmhouses. through clearings, a glimpse of the flimsy fence following much of the 1,300-kilometer, 830-mile border that separates them. it's quite remarkable how open the border appears to be. we're not allowed to walk across the field, but the other side of the field, less than 100 yards, 100 meters away, it's a low, waist-high fence, a few wooden poles and some wire. thank you. for a clearer view of the border, you need to get above it.

from up here, you can really see just how fine the border is, tracing its way across the countryside. it looks calm, yet below here, the biggest geo-political realignment in a generation is taking place. fences? this woman is caught in it. her farmland touches russia. >> our land is zero meters. >> reporter: your land is on the border? >> yes. >> reporter: how do you feel about that now? >> confused. it is -- it has been safe, but now with this -- now it is different. >> reporter: for finns, that change in feeling came fast. once tepid support for nato rocketed as russia invaded ukraine, from one-third to over two-thirds in a matter of weeks.
10:20 pm
>> of course nato. excellent choice, because we need now protection and it's the best available. >> joining nato would be that gate to us, that no one would invade us. >> reporter: here in finland's east, generations have grown knowing russia can be a dangerous neighbor. as local legend would have it, when the russians arrived here 281 years ago and stormed the fort up the hill, they spilled so much blood, this log was carried down the hill on it. world war ii commemorations of finnish dead from battling the red army are plentiful, too. finland ultimately escaping invasion by agreeing to be non-aligned. at the last finnish cafe before the he sin ski to moscow transcontinental railline crosses to russia, security, not trade, is top priority.

despite new eu sanctions on russia halving business. >> if you know our common history with russia, we were in a similar situation back in the '30s and i think it would be really naive and foolish of us to remain neutral when we have this much historical background to learn from. >> reporter: at the local ice hockey rink, many of the pros practicing sport ukrainian flags on their helmets. sympathies are strong. similarities easy to imagine. >> it's natural to bring in the mind of what could happen, because we are so close. >> reporter: the captain's focus, keep his team's head in the game. nato membership, he says, should help. >> i hope it will bring more, like, we can little bit relax and just try to enjoy our lives like we have been enjoying so far. >> reporter: at the official road crossing, one of the few

10:28 pm
bipartisan bill that could expand security protection of the immediate family members of security justices. and peaceful protests were held at the homes of two other justices over the weekend. meanwhile, the senate will vote wednesday on a measure that would codify abortion rights into law. that legislation appears doomed, because democrats just don't have the votes. but they will be able to put republicans on record opposing abortion rights. and that could -- could -- put hem in midterm elections late this year. the top senate democrat says republicans will not be able to hide from their role in bringing roe to an end. his counterpart in the house is calling for republicans to stop acting like a cult and reclaim their identity. >> i want the republican party to take back the party, take it back to where you were, when you cared about a woman's right to choose and you cared about the environment and all --
10:29 pm
[ applause ] all the great -- all the -- hey, here i am, nancy pelosi, saying, this country needs a strong republican party -- and we do. not a cult. but a strong republican party. well, abortion rights is a very controversial issue in the united states. much more than in any other parts of the world. all the countries in green have no real restrictions on the procedure. in the red countries, it's banned outright. those marked with orange, yellow, and blue place conditions on abortion such as whether the woman's life is in danger. in most of europe, abortions are widely available. with notable exceptions in poland and malta and a few other states, as well. with us now live is carlo. access to safe abortion was named a human right. where you live seems to
10:30 pm
determine the level of access you have to abortion services. in the u.s., it's red state versus blue state. how does it play out in europe? >> ah, yeah, well, first of all, thanks for having me. i would say in europe, broadly, most countries allow abortion up until the 14th week mark, so, that's around the first trimester, but we do actually see variation on both ends of the spectrum, with sweden and the netherlands, for example, having -- allowing it for a longer period of time, while countries like malta and poland have much more restrictive laws, de facto ban, in fact, so while we do see a kind of wide spectrum, most countries are clustering around allowing abortion up until the first trimester. >> is there any reason why poland and malta are the standout? >> well, they are both, of course, majority catholic
10:31 pm
countries. they're both very catholic. malta has a long-standing ban, so, it's nothing new in malta's case. poland, actually, had its rules changed recently. it's -- they've been getting tighter since the '90s, but then there was a high court decision a couple years ago that really imposed a near total ban on abortion and i should say it's been very controversial and there have been huge protests against it in poland, so it is a polarizing issue. >> many countries in europe where abortion is legal have mandatory wait times, for example, six days in belgium, seven days in italy. and the senate for reproductive rights found short time limits can be harmful for adolescent girls and women from marginalized populations. and there are other things that make access difficult. so, if the u.s. supreme court does go ahead and strikes down
10:32 pm
roe, what does that mean for restrictions in europe? does that embolden lawmakers there to move ahead with tightening restrictions? >> yeah, well, i would hesitate from having too direct of a read across, but it certainly does put wind in the sails of people who object to abortion rights in europe. i think while in the u.s. we might see some states outright banning abortion, you know, if it -- if roe v. wade does get overturned like it looks like it's going to do, in europe, i don't think that's so much in the cards. instead, we'll have things like, you mentioned, like, longer waiting periods between your first consultation and actually getting an abortion or activists trying to push through things that make it harder to get an abortion at the local level in certain cities. already in italy, for example, we can see that in certain regions, it's really hard to get the take-home pill for abortion
10:33 pm
and they're requiring women who want to have a that to stay in a hospital, even though that's not what the recommendations say at the national level. so, i mean, i think there's very much a fight that will be played out in europe. i think it's going to look a little different than in the u.s. >> part of your report, about the sort of unofficial barriers that you did for politico, here's part of it. in italy, 70% of the country's gynecologist say they are objectors. in a very practical sense, it seems that women in spain and italy are in a very similar situation to american women in red states like texas or mississippi. >> yeah, i mean, i think that's -- that's a totally fair comparison. i mean, in italy, you mentioned it yourself, 70% of
10:34 pm
gynecologists are consensus objectors, and that makes it very difficult practically to have an abortion. you know, what the solution is isn't really clear. it's -- so, it's certainly something, i think that the government is looking into in italy's case right now, but it's true, women do face very large unofficial obstacles to getting abortion in these countries. >> and there's always a sense that abortion just didn't resonate in european politics the same way that it does in the united states. if you look at what's happening in poland, and i think some of the other places, too, where there have been these increased sort of barriers that are put in place, not banning it, but making it harder, is it changing that sense that it's not playing into politics? >> i think that's a really good question. my sense is that, yes, but we should keep one thing in mind, which is that in almost all
10:35 pm
european countries, actually, the public really does support the right to abortion, so it's -- it's not -- it's not an easy issue for the opposition to push on, but having said that, we see certain parties on the hard right that are, you know, trying to put abortion once again, to kind of throw it in the debate. and even if they don't go as far as to say that they outright want to ban it, there's certainly a feeling that maybe the issue is live in a way that it hadn't been for quite some time. >> carlo, appreciate your time. certainly appreciate your reporting for politico. thank you. >> thank you. well, sri lanka's prime minister has resigned. the country is under a nationwide curfew after violent clashes break out. a live report later this hour here on cnn.secret

celebrations erupted on the streets of collombo after sri lanka's prime minister resigned on monday. in his rezing nate letter, the prime minister said he was quitting to help form an interim unity government to help lift the country out of this crisis. cnn's anna coren live this hour for us in hong kong. so, i guess, will this resignation bring the violence and the unrest to an end? >> reporter: well, john, we know that there have been protests going on for months, but what we witnessed last night on the streets, not just of the capital, but right across the country, really, was unprecedented. six people died, hundreds injured, you know, dozens of homes of government ministers
10:50 pm
were set alight, as were vehicles owned by the government, the police. and this really speaks to the anger on the streets. you talk about the prime minister resigning yesterday, yes, he did that, but not before he at his official residence in clum bow, basically inciting them to go and attack the antigovernment protesters, who, i should say have been protesting peacefully the last few months. sri lanka is facing the worst economic crisis it's faced since gaining independence from the british in 1948. there were television cameras at these events, john. his speech was televised. and then the cameras turned to the supporters with metal bars and polls, going out of the residence, attacking the antigovernment protesters before
10:51 pm
moving on to the make-shift camp. the promenade where it's basically set up camp, attacking those protesters, setting their tents. the antigovernment protesters said they retaliated and that's when they attacked the homes of the government ministers, as well as the vehicles. the prime minister may have resigned. but at the end of the day, these people want his younger brother, the president, to stand down as well. the brothers have basically governed sri lanka with an iron first for much of the last two decades. and the people, john, are basically fed up. they want a change and the opzi opposition is saying until the president also steps down, they are not interested in forming talks for a unity government. >> thank you. live from hong kong with the

very latest. south korea has sworn in a new president. he begins with an increasing nuclear and missile threat. yoon said he had a, quote, audacious plan. perhaps that's easier said than done as yoon takes office with zero policy foreign experience. he faces a covid-ravaged economy with high interest rates, high inflation. ferdinand marcos jr. is on the brink of accomplishing something that would have been unthinkable decades earlier. he's basically winning the philippine presidential election by a landslide. his father was ousted 36 years ago. unofficial predictions have him winning -- and 14 million for the closest rival.

here's more. this is a case of short memories or what? >> reporter: i think it's clearly a historic moment. these are preliminary results. they're unofficial. but they indicate one of the biggest electoral mandates that any presidential candidate has gotten in generations, really. also, perhaps, the success that the marcos jr. campaign has had in pretty much rewriting history. and recasting his deposed father's legacy with a nostalgic campaign that millions and millions of filipinos voted for are. marcos jr., he addressed supporters. let's take a listen to a little bit of what he said. >> i wanted to issue a short statement. and essentially a statement of
10:54 pm
gratitude. to all of those that have been with us in this long and sometimes very difficult journey for the last six months. i want to thank you for all that you have done are for us. there are thousands of you out there. >> you know, the slogan for this campaign was "rise again." there was a lot of message of nostalgia. many filipinos are are too young to remember the years of the marcos dictatorship in the 1980s. the nearly a decade of martial law. and may not have seen the allegations of corruption and graft at that time. as the marcos family is still being investigated for potentialal theft of up to $10 billion worth of assets. so, the big question, if marcos jr. goes forward to become the
10:55 pm
president, is what will happen to those investigations? one thing we saw in this election is the remarkable success of two political dynasties allied. this is marcos jr., the son of the ousted dictator of the philippines, ferdinand marcos sr . and sarah duterte. and it appears to have won on a big margin. the biggest challenger, robredo, she won in the central eastern of the country and appealed to youth class but, according to preliminary results, dwarfed by the masses of filipinos who have
