welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and all around the world. i'm kim brunhuber in atlanta. just ahead here on "cnn newsroom" -- >> republic of korea is strong, thriving, innovating democracy and our lives grow stronger every single day. >> the war in ukraine and provocations from north korea looming large over president biden's trip to asia. we're live in tokyo for the president's second stop in the region. plus, ukraine's president
remains defiant amid russian advances. we'll show you how new vehicles are helping fight the war. and baby formula is now being flown to the u.s. from germany. mothers facing a shortage across the country. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with kim brunhuber. u.s. president joe biden is set to land in japan soon after wrapping up a visit to south korea. he left seoul a short time ago and the visit marks police first trip to asia as commander in chief. before leaving, met with military families and american troops stationed there. and also with the chairman of hyundai where he toured their plant to build a new electric vehicle plant in the u.s. state of georgia and while he is trying to put the focus on bolstering america's economic and security ties in the region,
a shadow of potential conflict is never far away. on saturday the u.s. and south korea announced plans to expand joint military drills in response to north korea's growing nuclear threat. u.s. officials have also warned that north korea could stage a missile or nuclear test while biden is in the region. earlier he said that the u.s. was prepared for that possibility. here he is. >> we are prepared for anything north korea does. we've talked through how we respond to anything that they do and so i'm not concerned if that is your suggestion. >> for more, let's bring in blake essig and kevin liptak live in tokyo. take us through the president's schedule and what he is hoping to get out of the meeting with japan's prime minister. >> reporter: he is due to arrive here in a matter of minutes. what the president will do when he arrives, he will go to bed tonight, but tomorrow he plans to pay a visit to japan's
emperor before meeting with the prime minister kishida. he was elected last year. and really the goals of that bilateral meeting are very similar to what the president was doing in seoul, to reaffirm the key u.s. alliance in the asian pacific just like south korea, japan hosts thousands of american troops, so the president will want to reiterate the security components of the alliance as well as the economic components. and that is sort of the second major big factor that the president will be doing tomorrow is unveiling this economic family work that is hotly anticipated among countries in asia. it is not a trade deal, more of a trade plan with many or components, things like reducing carbon, bolstering supply chains. so that is something that the president will do tomorrow and then on tuesday the president will convene the sum mitt summi the quad, that is seen as a
collective meant to counter china in the region. so this will be a critical summit. a australia just elected a prime minister and his first order of business will be coming here to japan to meet with president biden and these other leaders. and while he is in japan, he will also have a chance to meet individually with the new prime minister from australia, but also the indian prime minister narendra modi. of course india has been somewhat reluctant to follow the united states' lead when it comes to the war in ukraine. it is still importing russian oil, it has been hesitant to apply sanctions on moscow. so that is something that the president and prime minister modi will discuss when they sit down on tuesday. so certainly it is a stacked agenda here in japan. the issue that is still overriding all of this is as you were saying north korea, japan just like south korea is anxious about those provocations that you've seen coming from
pyongyang. when president biden was leaving seoul, he was asked what his message would be for the north korean tdictator, kim jung-un, e just said h. ssimply said hello period. >> and we're seeing air force one landing in the picture behind you, thousand covered up by that helicopter. but this is the air base in japan. president biden aboard and he will be meeting with the japanese prime minister later in his trip. so i want to pivot now to blake. you've been looking a bit closer into that meeting that is coming up with the quad. especially how china will figure so huge in their discussions. >> reporter: you know, kim, china will never be directly mentioned throughout this quad summit, but you can bet that china is the point of the quad and is going to be part of,
whether it is the economic and security discussions taking place, china will be a big part of that discussion. but first of course the bilateral meeting between president biden and prime minister kishida, it is always a big deal when the sitting president from the united states visits a foreign country and from the japanese perspective, this really is a huge opportunity both internationally and domestically. for japanese prime minister kishida who only took office last october, has an upper house election set for this summer, there is a chance to show the country at this point that he is a respected international statesman and capable of taking relations with japan's most important ally to that next level. and from the u.s. perspective, president biden's first trip to asia is also important especially after four years former president donald trump a period that many experts say undermined the faith, trust and confidence that key allies had in the united states and more
recently of course there is chaotic u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan. that being said, there are a lot of people in this part of the world that question the political will of the united states to deploy troops abroad. take a listen. >> you may not be able to count on the u.s. in that kind of a situation, for whatever reason. who knows what is going to happen in the domestic u.s. but regardless, i think that japan has a very strong section of the population who don't want to be reliant on outside powers in order to be able to make its decisions that might or may not risk its serenity. >> reporter: when president biden and prime minister kishida meet on monday for their bilateral meeting, we expect the two sides will release a joint statement pledging to deter and respond to china's increasing military in this region and for president biden to make it clear
that the united states will defend japan including with the use of nuclear weapons if attacked. it is worth noting that big part of that pledge to deter and respond to china falls on japan and as a result of the rise of china territorial disputes with china and russia, potential war in taiwan in a nuclear armed north korea, members of the japan ruling party realize that they must do more to protect themselves and take a more proactive stance domestically here in gentlemanen pa, there h japan, there is a push to increase their gdp and improve their defense capabilities by developing counter strike capability as opposed to waiting for the fight coming to them. >> and we see air force one just having touched down moments ago. blake and kevin, thank you so much. the president of poland reportedly has arrived in
ukraine and will address the nation's parliament later today. it will be the first foreign head of state to speak to lawmakers since the war began. elsewhere the russian military is claiming it destroyed a large shipment of u.s. and european weapons in western ukraine saturday. there is no confirmation of that, but ukrainian military officials say that missiles struck military infrastructure. and in eastern ukraine the ukrainian military says the russians destroyed a bridge between severdonetsk and a neighboring town. ukraine's president marking his third anniversary in office was as defiant as ever in his nightly address. >> translator: the armed forces of ukraine are deterring this offensive, every day that our defenders take away from these defensive plans of russia is a concrete contribution to the approach of the main day. the desired day that we are all looking forward to and fighting for. victory day. >> and we're learning that
friday's missile strike on a town near kharkiv was even more damaging than the video shows. besides destroying the newly renovated cultural center, the mayor says that the blast damaged more than 1,000 apartments and many schools. and the $40 billion aid package to ukraine that congress approved has been signed by u.s. president joe biden. besides humanitarian aid, it aims to ensure uninterrupted flow of equipment and aid. president erdogan has been the lone nato must be to publicly oppose finland and sweden of joining nato accusing them of harboring terrorists. there is no indication that he has softened his position. suzanne malveaux is in lviv with the latest. and with these latest attacks on schools and cultural
institutions, how are ukrainians responding? >> reporter: ukrainians as you can imagine are very, very concerned about this. and they are very emotional about it as well. president zelenskyy saying that the russians not only want to kill the ukrainian people, but they want to sdoidestroy their educational institutions and destroy the very fabric of society. and so that makes people very passionate. we heard zelenskyy as well, very candid about what is happening in the donbas region, escalation of russia's attacks saying it is extreme extremely difficult and that situation on the front line really motivating a lot of ukrainians do whatever they can to help. and i met such a woman, a young woman who is now donating cars and driving them to the front lines herself. down a quite dirt road in lviv, this small auto repair shop
looks like any other. but it is playing a vital role in ukraine's civilian resistance. it is back-breaking work, assuming up this run-of-the-mill truck to head to the frontlines. this man who normally worksdesi drive it to the frontlines. >> translator: every trip is filled with emotions, full of hard work and joy that i could be part of something bigger. i can bring at least some things that will make us closer to victory. >> reporter: she has been organizing car donations to the ukrainian military since russia invaded crimea in 2014. now her efforts have increased with five trips so far this year. so you are by yourself for 17 hours in this big vehicle. as petite as you are, are you
afraid, are you concerned? you are going close to the frontline by yourself. >> translator: it would be strange if i wasn't scared because everyone is scared about their lives. but apart from the fear, there is also love, which is always stronger. it is the love of our motherland. >> reporter: civilians here are desperate to help the army however they can, donating money to import as many cars as possible. this truck now painted and ready is destined for donetsk in eastern ukraine. where russian troops have been shelling relentlessly for more than a month, injuring and killing thousands of civilians. and battering the ukrainian forces. soldiers say donations like this have been invaluable as they brace for a long conflict. >> translator: it is really unpredictable, sometimes the car might saurvive for one or two months but sometimes the next day it can get destroyed.
>> reporter: it is an 800 mile journey and it is not just the car that she will give to those fighting. the trunk is filled with new uniform, military equipment and lots of fuel. as she packs, she imagines these supplies will help soldiers like her brother-in-law and other close friends. loved ones now fighting in the east. >> translator: we had coffee two days before the war began. now they are on the frontlines. but the fact that i can help the soldiers makes me less worried. >> reporter: her treacherous journey hopefully paving the way to a few ukraine. and we've been in touch with her, she is just a few hours away from that key town and ukrainian military saying that the russians will continue to escalate their attacks there. and so we are in touch with her and certainly wishing her the best in her safety.

we're seeing live pictures right now of u.s. president joe biden who has arrived in japan. you are seeing him at the air base meeting people, shaking hands and so on. air foersrce one landed maybe at ten minutes ago. this is his second stop on his asian tour after being in south korea the last couple days. he has a new indo-pacific framework to unveil and he is expected to reaffirm america's support against the intensifying provocations from north korea in the region. u.s. military flight is en
route from germany to indiana carrying more than 130 pallets of baby formula, the first shipment under the president's "operation fly formula." americans are dealing with a nationwide shortage underscoring the operation's importance to the white house, the agricultural secretary will greet the flight when it lands in indianapolis later today. elizabeth cohen is in germany. the need is so huge, but one shipment i don't imagine will make too much of a dent. is there more on its way? >> reporter: there is supposed to be more on its way. we're told to expect more of these shipments importing baby formula into the united states. they might not be military planes this time, they might be commercial flights that are contracted by the military. we're told next flight could be the middle of next week. now, we don't know numbers for those flights. we do know that this flight that is currently en route to indiana is 1.5 million 8 ounce bottles
of infant formula, it is infant formula specifically for infants who have allergies. any child could take it, but it is specifically hypoallergenic. that is because a lot of the children that have been having some of the most dire problems have been children with medical issues. so this flight is expected to land around 11:30 indianapolis time and this help couldn't come anytime -- just people need this help so, so much. now, abbott labs says that they hope to be opening up their shuttered manufacturing plant by the first week of june, they said it will take 6 to 8 weeks before they can ramp up and get stuff out on to shelves. and so parents will be seeing a difference -- or should be seeing a difference in the short term, but perhaps not much of a difference for really seeing a big difference really making things easier on parents that are for babies that could take many weeks. >> with the help needed right
now as you say. elizabeth cohen at ramstein air base in germany, thank you so much. so israel is reporting their first cases of monkeypox, swiss cases also reported and the israeli health ministry says a man admitted to the hospital friday tested positive for the disease saturday. the man had recently returned from western europe. he has been quarantined and remains in good condition. the world health organization said on saturday that there were more than 90 confirmed cases of monkeypox worldwide and at least 28 potential cases under investigation. there seems to be no end to the economic turmoil plaguing sri lanka. the country defaulted on its foreign debt and citizens have been forced to adjust to chronic shortages of everyday essentials. here is the story. >> reporter: this 36-year-old
has spent two nights at this gas station. it has been an endless way to refuel his three-wheeler. the pumps are all but dry across the city. >> translator: at every pet control station we go to, they sell us that they have run out of gas. our day goes at lining up at petrol pumps. >> reporter: with no fuel, he has been out of work. he heads home to meet family where the situation is equally dire. there has been a gripping shortage of cooking gas across the island nation. his wife has been cooking on a kerosene stove for the last three months. >> translator: i only have this one bottle of kerosene left. it will finish after i heat the food tonight. >> reporter: this family of five has no choice but to skip meals. >> translator: we do not eat in
the mornings, we eat rice for lunch and dinner. >> reporter: about 5 kilometers away from their home, this person can barely sit in this balcony where she cooks the day's meals. she uses coconut husk, paper and karen kerosene to get the stove started. >> translator: since third of april, there has been no cooking gas. we're using a firewood stove. >> reporter: earlier she would cook three meal as day on a gas stove. it is now down to one. >> translator: my husband and my children have never let me town. this country has. it makes me sad and is aangry. i don't see things getting better anytime soon. >> reporter: weeks of protests forced all officials except the president to step down from senior government posts.
monday their new prime minister warned that things would only get worse before getting any better. four days later and for the first time in its history, the country defaulted on its debt. >> unless the government reaches an agreement with the imf for future resources and simultaneously an agreement with its foreign creditors about rescheduling, then the situation looks, frankly, impossible. >> reporter: while talks with the international monetary fund are under way, their residents are losing patience and hope. this man says he voted for them in the last election but now wants them out of power and out of the country. cnn, new delhi. as the russians shelled kharkiv, now a mother and daughter finally get to return home.

before joining the meeting of the quad alliance as the u.s. seeks to bolster its economic and security ties in asia am mitt rising nuclear threats from north korea and growing chinese influence in the region. ukraine's ongoing counteroffensive around kharkiv has made that city much safen than it was. and now some residents are venturing back to reunite with loved ones a nd see what is lef of their homes. dan rivers has this report. >> reporter: the siege was documented for us in march in this video diary. >> last night was probably the most terrifying night of my life. kharkiv was terribly bombarded. >> reporter: and she filmed the destruction and her emotions giving harrowing insight into this war.
>> vooik airstrikes all over th. dozens of buildings destroyed. buildings will people live. >> reporter: today she's returned to her home city for the first time. she is with her mother after staying with friends in the relative safety two hours away from kharkiv. >> crying again. i'm sorry. >> reporter: they haven't seen her father for almost two honesties.
>> he says it is time do back. >> reporter: in her video diary, she showed where she took refuge in her flat, a home she was forced to leave without knowing if she would ever see it again. >> this is our hiding place. it is a vestibule area between two walls with no windows. i don't know why but being bombarded is easier to live in your home. >> reporter: but today, kharkiv is much safer. she has come back to check on her apartment. does it feel strange coming
back? >> yes. my room! just feels odd because it is so you're not like it is supposed to be. i for some reason thought that i would return and all the furniture would be standing the right way. sorry. my bed is superior to other beds. >> reporter: her flat is undamaged, but you don't have to go far to see the consequences of russia's bombing. >> when we were still in kharkiv, this was the closest large explosion. we heard incredibly loud noise and the windows and doors but shaken and this was it. >> reporter: walls peeled off by blast which have laid bare, lives ruined in an instant. the random nature of what survived and what didn't is on display like an exhibit in a museum. but this war is not in the past. around the edge of the city, it
is very much in the present. the attack on the city's town hallmarked the beginning of the siege. today almost in an act of defiance, flowers have been planted in front of it. and for them it is a sign kharkiv will recover. this building was the heart of kharkiv. would you say kharkiv's heart has been broken? >> yes, i would say so for sure. it was the most excruciating thing to see this building rocketed. >> reporter: she has returned to a city scarred by the war, but one in which its citizens are beginning to glimpse normality again. and in the warm spring sunshine, there is something that has been absent for the people of kh kharkiv, hope. dan rivers, itv news, kharkiv. as we just saw there, so many ukrainians have lost their homes and possessions in this war and have little to come back
to. with more on this is chief editor at the newspaper. and thank you so much for being with us. yes, some stories are unhappy, but many people are coming home happy just to be home as we saw. you yourself just returned home a few days ago after leaving with your family. so what did it feel like crossing the threshold of your home again? >> well, we were anxious to see how the city looks like. it definitely doesn't look the way it looked before the war. you can feel the city was on the brink of the war or in the middle of the war in a lot of areas because there was a lot of fighting and street fighting going on in kyiv. you can still see lots of fortifications, lots of checkpoints, lots of anti-tank hedgehogs and huge lines at the gas stations because they hit a major refinery with a missile
and major oil storages. so diesel and gas are precious commodities these days. but life is definitely coming back to the city. i have my own measurement system here in the building. we have 120 apartments in my residential complex. and during the days of war, only ten were inhabited. everybody else was gone. and my home is on the ground floor and i ask how many people were back and we now have 62 apartments where people live. so we crossed the equator in my residential building. and the city mayor, the famous boxing fire, he has his own measurement system which is sim cards. which is a pretty accurate way to measure the population because almost everybody has a smartphone except for kids to 10 years old. so before the war, there were 3.6 million sim cards staying in
kyiv overnight every day. and during the peak days, figure was down to 1 million. and now it is become to 2.4 million. and so a lot of people are coming back. >> many people come home, they find their homes either destroyed or even looted by soldiers. for you for instance, what state was everything in? >> my apartment is fine completely, but i have a summer house north of kyiv and where the frontline was for about a month and the russians looted all the houses there including mine. so they broke into the door, they turned everything upside d down. i don't know what they were looking for. they found an empty box from iphone x, so sorry guy, i have my iphone so they couldn't find it. and they just opened a bottle of liquor. probably expected something sweet, but it wasn't vodka. and many houses they left human
excrement which we joke is a trademark signature of the russian army. we have no idea why they do that. it looks like using toilet is much more comfortable. >> i guess they are trying to make some kind of statement. you talked about your unofficial statistics there, but accordinged to the border authorities in ukraine, more people are coming back to ukraine than leaving the country. why now? is there a sense of renewed optimism? >> reporter: first of all, it has become safer in central ukraine particularly here. i just heard a report from kharkiv before me, kharkiv obviously in much bigger danger than kyiv. we all figure if you don't have artillery next to your city, you are relatively safe. you are all in the same conditions because missiles come and leave, odesa, kyiv, it is all the same. if you don't have russians right next to your city, you are
relatively okay. so that is a reason for coming back. but people get exhausted and running out of money and not always living in comfortable conditions center this germany, england, france. we have a lot of women coming back. and major thing that keeps mothers with children coming back, it is the danger for children. we still get air raid sirens about three times a day. and everybody is in a stressful, lengthy evacuation. people don't want to go through that second time. so they want to make sure that the city is safe for children and they won't have to go through that another time. if you look at the city, i mean, it is almost back to normal. there are fewer cars of course, fewer people, but the restaurants are opening up and there is one thing distinctly that is missing from a healthy urban landscape snd that is children. there are very few children. >> some people who have returned, they have said that
they are happy but also disappointed because, you know, not just because things were broken or out of place and so on, but just because they can't really feel like home basically until the war ends. do you get that sense a lot? >> yeah, we had a conversation with a friend of i mean, we were co-hosts of a radio show because we had seven journalists joining the army and two well-known anchors, so we had to fill in for them daily. so my co-hosts would return to kyiv and we both shared the same feeling that it is kind of more depressing here in kyiv than it was in lviv. we were in lviv for three months. in lviv, we felt it was not forever. kind of a holiday. not a holiday of course, you are not home and you are there temporarily and zen you come back and you realize this is your home and you this is not the way it was and you are here hopefully forever and we don't have to do another escape. so it does feel a little grim and slightly depressing.
>> yeah, quickly before we go, if the bombs do start falling again, will you leave or are you staying for good? >> if the missiles come, then i'll probably stay here unless they start hitting residential areas like they did in kharkiv. i lived in lviv for 2 1/2 months and missiles were coming regularly. luckily they were hitting mostly railway because russians are trying to disrupt heavy weaponry coming from the west to the east of the country. and military -- but sometimes they hit residential areas too. if something like that happens here, i'll probably stay, but if the russian artillery is within the range of 20, 40 kilometers, then you probably have to go. >> we wish you and all of the people there and all the people coming back all the best. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you so much. ahead, major power shift this australia. a look at why voters delivered a sharp rebuke to prime minister

australian voters have ended nine years of conservative rule by ousting scott morrison's coalition. labour party leader anthony albanese will be the next prime minister. anna coren takes a closer look at australia's new leader and explains why morrison's coalition lost. >> reporter: meet anthony albanese, australia's 31st prime minister. >> thank you for this extraordinary honor. tonight the australian people have voted for change. i am humbled by this victory. and i'm honored to be given the
opportunity to serve as the 31st prime minister of australia. >> reporter: many down under were fed up with scott morrison, many see as lacking empathy and integrity. >> all anthony would have to do is none of the things that scott's done. >> reporter: with such a low bar, albanese presented an option for safe change instead of appealing to big spending on health and education or higher taxes on the wealthy, values that albanese himself has long campaigned for. >> i believe that government could made a positive -- >> reporter: raised by a single mother, he is a working class stalwart of the party's left faction. many expected him to announce bold strategies on climate, but instead he is keeping to what he says is economical, a 43% emissions drop by 2030. and that perceived lack of ambition has driven many voters
to environmentally minded independence who may still hold the balance of power after saturday's vote. >> a lot of people are moving toward independence probably due to dissatisfaction of the current political system. >> reporter: and it is no long for the world to wait to find out more about anthony albanese. his first diplomatic test comes tuesday at the quad meeting in tokyo where he meets joe biden and other allies. anna coren, cnn, hong kong. here in the u.s., pennsylvania's republican senate primary is still too close to call. votes from tuesday's contests are still being counted. trump-backed mehmet oz holds a narrow lead over david mccormick. a recount will be triggered if the race is within half a percentage point. mccormick's team is pushing for undated mail-in ballots to be counted. alabama, arkansas and
