it is 4.32 and breaking news this morning. ukraine under siege as russia continues to advance an attack. towards the city of the capital city of key fresher forces closing in about 20 miles right now outside of the capital. there are explosions being in that capital city as military forces continue to press closer and closer, russian forces are pressing right now with a full scale invasion that has already killed more than 100 ukrainians in the first full day of fighting. and after using air strikes on cities and military bases, russia's ground units are now closing in on cave. as you can see in some of these pictures and this map, specifically, the attacks are happening all across the country. ukraine's president zelensky says that at least 137 people have been killed so far, 316 others wounded. 74 ukrainian military facilities have also been destroyed and that includes 11th air bases. course, all these numbers are fluid likely continue to climb throughout the broadcast this morning,
4:34 am
we've been seeing a number of images to and feet video showing people in ukraine leaving their homes. grabbing whatever they can and heading to safety. ukraine is a nation of 44 million people. and the russian military right now is attacking large parts of it, sending all of these people fleeing in fear. we have some live pictures from key this morning. again, a very quiet morning. no traffic to speak, a very different scene from what we saw yesterday when there was at least some. movement on the streets or we have just a couple of cars driving by the 4 graham. but that's it. president biden, meanwhile, has been clear that no u.s. troops will fight russian forces in ukraine. instead, the president has opted to deploy nearly 6,000 troops to eastern europe to provide what's called defense defensive assistance to ukraine, an american nato allies near the ukrainian border. right now. the u.s. already has more than 80,000 troops in europe. and government officials say that their role is soley supportive. however, congress
4:35 am
is closely monitoring the situation and prepared to respond. they say. it's too early to tell whether >> any of this is going to leave to some other longer term posture changes. i don't think there's any talk of americans fighting on the ground or in the ukraine. who knows what the heck putin will do. but we have to be able to fight back on defense and on offense. >> the ukrainian ambassador to the u.s. said earlier the country does not expect anyone to fight for ukraine but will accept any and all help that the west can provide. well, the invasion of russian troops into ukraine has prompted protests around the world, including right here in the bay area. ukrainian-americans and supporters were at san francisco city hall calling on the u.s. and its allies to impose tougher sanctions and to consider all other options. proffers amanda hari has the story. >> now seen so many people here. it's just it's so up next in supporting ukraine,
4:36 am
from san francisco by right? is a scientist working at uc berkeley. but she's from ukraine and she still has friends and family there. some of my friends had to spend the night today tonight in the metro station so it and the so i hope they will get a but >> no one. she helped plan the gathering along with melanie mccutcheon. she also has ukrainian ancestry as an american, i would be out here anyway, even if it wasn't personal because putin is a threat to democracy around the world. the crowd here is truly impressive. hundreds of people gathered. >> to show their support for ukraine. i'm told it's even more than organizers initially expected to be. take a look behind me. >> you can see all of the people just lining the street both of what's going this aggression enough room. >> russia against ukraine was number alexander allen lived in russia before the fall of the soviet union. but he has friends who are ukrainian and
4:37 am
he doesn't backed coup in when you're all together supporting ukraine and and that condemned and put in some people tell me they're grateful. they live here in the united states where they're free to be protesting the invasion. i mean, i heard today in russia, there were russians that were protesting against all of this and they got you know, carted off to prison. i cherish this right. i cherish this right to come out and >> speak and be free and that's all ukrainians want. the one message that i've heard from everyone i've spoken to is that they will continue to support ukraine. >> for as long as it takes in san francisco. amanda hari kron, 4 news. >> well, one bay area nonprofit the ukraine american coordinating council is doing what it can to try and help local family members and loved ones as many civilians are fleeing the country. take a listen. >> people in that state can but then leaving and the stand that russians, a cop. i mean, the russians are ready to call some parts if and they win,
4:38 am
just go marsha. sure. the cdc credence it is and saying that their defeat ukrainian people from not see regime is so crazy. >> and the organization is currently fundraising right now in order to send medical assistance to ukraine to find out how you can help and donate ago tour. go to our website at kron 4 dot com. well, stocks stumbled early, but the markets did make a comeback before the closing bell, as investors biting their fingernails really mulling how a russian invasion of ukraine is going to impact portfolios. william houston junior is the ceo and founder berry street capital holdings on the peninsula. and it's an investment firm that focuses on building portfolios that reduce volatility. and he told us that at this point there's no need to panic. >> right. right now a lot of folks are looking at their town saying, oh, i don't want to lose the games that made over the last couple of
4:39 am
months. the right attitude would be, you know, let's make sure that we're buying right now as opposed to panicking every acting too. some news that we that would be the wrong approach. >> houston junior also said that unless you're an expert be cautious with crypto currencies allocating maybe 5%. your portfolio to crypto is fine. but anymore could pose an unnecessary risk. he says. >> well, happening today, the cdc will announce that they are easing mask guidelines across the country. >> under the guidelines, the agency says its updating the way it assesses community spread of covid, which means that most americans will no longer have to wear masks indoors. california is among many states that have already dropped their indoor mask mandate. it's not clear exactly how the new cdc guidance would affect u.s. federal mandates which require face coverings on public transportation. we'll have to wait and see. santa clara county, by the way, the only county in the bay area that still has an indoor mask mandate. but that could change as early as next week. the
4:40 am
county's health officer doctor sara cody, announced that the county is expected to record less than 550 new cases per day over the next week. and that is the last of the 3 metrics needed in order to lift the mask mandate. the other 2 metrics, low hospitalizations and an 80% or higher vaccination rate have already been reached. doctor cody says that if these numbers hold the indoor mask mandate can be lifted on march. 2nd. >> the idea is to ensure that we have safety in place with high levels of vaccination, which we have and that we have overall community transmission low enough to support removing this very important layer or at least removing the requirement. >> santa clara and los angeles counties are the last in the entire state to still require masks indoors. la county is lifting its mandate today. masks will still be required, though, in schools and health care settings. and on public transit san jose mayor sam liccardo is proposing that the city lift its booster requirement that city own
4:41 am
facilities. so the requirement has been in place for about 6 weeks now. and people have to show proof of a covid booster shot and they want to attend events at places like the sep center, the car argue that the booster requirement served its purpose of reducing the risk of covid related hospitalizations during the region's winter surge and proof of vaccination or negative covid test will still be required under state guidelines for indoor events with more than 1000 attendees and local guidelines for events at city-owned facilities. in other news, the san francisco unified school board has pushed its meeting to next week to decide if it's going to be laying off hundreds of teachers. so kicking the can further down the road. district leaders say the layoffs are necessary to help with a major budget shortfall is they're looking at 125 million dollar budget deficit for the next school year. one man has been teaching in san francisco for 18 years and doesn't think this decision should be made until the 3 recalled board members are replaced by the mayor and has an idea that that would avoid layoffs altogether.
4:42 am
>> 2 years of seniority, a payout to the pension. and then what happens is that many of the senior volunteer to retire because they get a better pension. so what happens then is that seeing it teaches them to retire. and the judy and teaches hold on to jokes. >> the teacher, jeremy grebler says that he expects the board will vote in favor of layoffs. that vote is scheduled to take place again on tuesday. march. 1st. we'll take a break coming up next. in sports, the rejuvenated warriors back in action taken on the portland trail. blazers. >> and the dubs came out to play. kylen mills has highlights coming up.
