breaking overnight, a new wave of attacks across ukraine, explosions felt across the capital of kyiv and other cities even as the death toll rises from yesterday's barrage of russian strikes. nbc's foreign correspondent richard engel has the latest good morning. >> reporter: good morning. russia is now attacking ukrainian cities daily and with impunity this was the main flower market in the city of mykolaiv, hit by a russian missile overnight. russia attacked an apartment building killing at least one person according to ukrainian officials. ukrainians say by attacking sites like these that have no military value, russia is trying to break the ukrainian spirit. russia is flattening ukraine one market at a time death by a thousand cuts for arena, whose flower shop was destroyed in mykolaiv, what russia is doing is nothing less than state terror.
7:08 am
we clean up and continue living. what else can we do? and we will win, she says. over the last two weeks, russia intensifying attacks on ukrainian cities claiming to be destroying the country's infrastructure and its ability to wage war. but russia is firing directly on civilians, attacking an apartment building overnight in mykolaiv, too. officials say russia launched guided missile, killing one person the strikes came hours after an airplane mysteriously crashed in russia state media reporting that a pilot on a training mission took off from an occupied part of ukraine and ejected. the aircraft smashing into a building and killing four russians ukrainians wonder if it was an accident or sabotage from within president putin personal hi dispatched investigators to the scene. discontent is growing in russia after the kremlin imposed a draft, rounding up conscripts across the country with precision weapons in short
7:09 am
supply, moscow is increasingly relying on iranian-made dive-bomber drones launching them in swarms at ukrainian cities, including kyiv, with deadly effect. overnight in his daily address, president zelenskyy called for more air defenses. secretary of tate blinken condemned iran for supplying russia with weapons. the united states gives ukraine billions of dollars in military support but not long-range weapons, trying to find a perhaps impossible balance of supporting ukraine without antagonizing moscow excessively. in a sign both sides seem to recognize this will be a long war. russia and ukraine exchanged prisoners. 108 ukrainian women for captured russian soldiers in a one-to-one swap over the last several days we have been talking a lot about how russia is using the iranian-made drones. the drones are highly effective, have a long range but don't carry much explosive power, not
7:10 am
enough to cause damage like this or to dig a crater in the ground, anything like this you see, even exposed the city's earlier foundation, and president zelenskyy today commenting on this attack, says it is more evidence why his country needs better air defenses and he wants russia to be held accountable. hoda? >> richard engel for us there in ukraine. thank you. there is international concern this morning for the safety of an iranian athlete after she represented her country in a recent climbing competition without wearing the customary hijab. meagan fitzgerald has that story this morning good morning >> good morning to you elnaz rekabi competed on sunday with what appeared to be a headband, her hair uncovered which is a violation of iran's strict dress code. this morning, an apology on he instagram page this morning but there is growing concern for her safety. >> reporter: this morning concerns for a young female iranian athlete after she
7:11 am
competed without wearing a hijab. elnaz rekabi, a prominent rock climber, took part in a competition in south korea this weekend notably climbing with her head uncovered in the past rekabi has worn the traditional headscarf while climbing the hijab is a focus of extraordinary protests in iran sparked by the death of 22-year-old mahsa amini retained by the morality police for breaching the dress code she died three days later. women have protest bid cutting their hair and appearing in public with their heads uncovered. after the appearance in south korea, rekabi is headed home the iranian embassy in seoul tweeting she departed yesterday. human rights groups concerned about pressure she may face from authorities. >> i think they will put her under tremendous pressure. there is fear of torture, ill treatment, psychological pressure
7:12 am
they want to set an example. both for other athletes in the same situation and also for the iranian girls so that they don't get a role model in elnaz. >> reporter: rekabi this morning posting on instagram that her hijab had issues before she was called to climb. while the statement was posted on her account, the circumstances under which it was posted remain unclear. now back in iran, the regime has been under pressure as protests led by young women continue. many watching rekabi's return to the country with concern now, the international federation of sports climbing says it's in contact with rekabi they also say they are in contact with the iranian climbing federation. they released a statement that i want to read to you. theater safety is paramount for us the ifsc fully supports the right of athletes, their choices and expression of free speech, but, savannah, this is a story we will be watching closely.
7:13 am
>> thank you very much. now to the midterms with just three weeks to go, early in in-person voting is underway across a number of states. at stake control of the senate and house. on the minds of voters major issues like the economy, crime, abortion rights. nbc national political correspondent steve kornacki is here with us right there with the issues that voters say matter to them and what that is telling us about what may happen. >> interesting, savannah we talked about the economy and inflation being important issues how about this a "new york times" poll, brand new here, asking voters what is the top issue on your mind this election i haven't seen it this dramatic. add the economy and inflation together, that is 44%. we are getting close to half of all respondents saying that's their top issue. nothing else cracks 10% right now. we talked about the republicans, when it comes to the economy and inflation, having a clear advantage in the polls. >> that brings us to the next
7:14 am
question the generic ballot they ask, would you like a republican or a democrat to control congress and there is movement here >> typically this is a good indicator where things end up in midterm elections. this is the average of the generic ballot right now you can see the republicans with a lead here. that is a 2.2-point lead for republicans. we were here a week ago taking you through generic ballot and a week ago it was inside of one point. inflation news didn't help the democrats and it seems as the economy moves to center stage republicans are improving chances here. >> a few weeks ago the democrats had the advantage. you see the momentum in the final weeks. talk about the issue of crime. not high on the list of voters' concerns and yet making an impact in certain races. >> fascinating because we showed the top issue. crime doesn't rate high there. doesn't mean it's not on their minds. let's show you a place where i think it is having an impact
7:15 am
this is wisconsin, one of the key senate races, ron johnson, two-term republican incumbent. he has been leading heavily on crime. interesting poll out of wisconsin this week, they ask things differently they ask, are these issues important to you that's what's asked here inflation tops the list. look at crime. it's close to 90%. i think also striking, abortion is under 80% republicans running heavily on crime. democrats running heavily on abortion it looks like in this wisconsin race, crime may have more resonance than abortion. >> making a difference in pennsylvania's senate race as well georgia, it may just be georgia, georgia, georgia to quote our friend tim russert that might be the decisionmaker in terms of who controls congress >> we saw this two years ago georgia is a runoff state. if nobody gets 50%, raphael warnock, herschel walker, warnock leading. nobody at 50 if nobody cracks 50, it's a december 6th runoff. could have control of the senate on the line.
7:16 am
they had a debate last friday. we are waiting to get a readout from some polls. haven't really seen it yet if that changes anything there. >> the governor's race is interesting. doesn't look like people are telling pollsters they will vote straight down party lines. >> we thought this type of voter was extinct. the split ticket voter, brian kemp, the republican governor, comfortably ahead outperforming the other republican herschel walker pollsters say they are seeing a suburban voter outside atlanta who doesn't like biden, doesn't like the democrats, but also doesn't like donald trump. brian kemp went to political war with donald trump and survived in that voter's eyes, kemp is okay walker has convincing to do. >> we'll be spending a lot of time together as we get close to election day thank you so much. hoda let's turn to monday night football four quarters not enough for the chargers and broncos so the game went into o.t. and this is how it ended >> that's good scott puts it down that's good.
