4:02 am
says three ukrainian troops were killed in that attack. surveillance video from the plant shows the missile targeting the facility. there has been no change reported in radiation levels at the plant at this point but before the strike , president biden announced new sanctions designed to hurt the inner circle of russian president vladimir putin. the severe economic sanctions on putin and all those folks around him. choking off access to technology as well as cutting off access to the global financial system. has had a profound impact already. and the goal was to maximize the impact on putin and russia and minimize the harm on us and our allies and friends around the world. secretary of state antony blinken is now in brussels, belgium, to meet with nato and european union leaders about how western nations will respond to the russian attacks. our time is 42 russian forces are still attacking cities across ukraine , with the coordinated focus on
4:03 am
the southern part of ukraine. after capturing the ports city of kherson, russia is getting more control over more of the crimean region that could cut off access to ukraine. by see the president of ukraine is offering to sit down and negotiate with russian president putin. sit down with me to negotiate. i don't bite. what are you afraid of? any words are more important than shots. during the second round of peace talks between the ukrainians and russians and agreement was made to set up humanitarian corridors in some parts of the country in order to evacuate civilians. the mass exodus from ukraine is now starting to be felt here in the bay area. ktvu tom vacar talked with officials of the south bay organization that wants to help refugees whether they're in europe or on their way here. since 2013, palo alto based nova , ukraine and nonprofit five oh one c three charity has been raising awareness of ukraine.
4:04 am
now it's raising money and assistance to aid the invaded nation of 41 million people. 2.5 a million people less than it had in 2014 when russia took crimea by force, the relief that will be needed will be needed for months, probably for years now, with the current russian land grab. more than a million people have already fled and more keep fleeing. they're also starting to see people arriving to the u. s difficulties are people who had some travel documents before it could be more. um i know some people arrived yesterday. uh and also there's a small number of families here who overstayed their visa because they could not return. so now nova ukraine is assisting people to find shelter in america. the nonprofit has set up some coordinators to help with any refugees, and it's also hired a law firm to work with immigration issues, but with most refugees currently in eastern europe the need. there
4:05 am
is critical. this is a humanitarian crisis. the temperatures are below in in eastern europe. it's cold. the group is also very worried about the ukrainian nuclear power industry, one of the largest in europe with multiple large power stations, and they have good reason to worry. chernobyl in ukraine remains the world's worst nuclear disaster, poorly designed, built and operated by the soviet union. before that failed empire broke up even an inadvertent mistake during maintenance. and, of course, any anything caused by, you know, gun shells or missiles can be catastrophic. i asked if markov thought that putin $600 billion war chest created to withstand sanctions now, mostly seized with those sanctions should be used for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of ukraine. he thought that would be fair. after all, since russia broke it
4:06 am
they can by its rebirth. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. thank you. tom international agencies are pleading for more funds to support children and families fleeing ukraine, the u. n refugee agency says more than one million people have now fled ukraine. unicef estimates 600,000 of them are children. there are another seven million children still in ukraine, many displaced separated from family and struggling with the trauma of war. we've mobilized mental health and psychosocial support teams that are going out to meet kids where they are to talk with them to provide some help and support to their parents and caregivers as well so that we can deal with that trauma, but also a lot of the life saving things that we're doing. clean water critical medical supplies. getting oxygen into icu units and hospitals. lots of critical work that's happening right now. now to donate to unicef's humanitarian efforts. in ukraine

4:08 am
county to add an arm of the civil court focused on mental health is that it stands for the value. that care for our most vulnerable should not be optional. it should be a legal mandate. under the proposal, people suffering from psychosis either due to mental illness or drug addiction could face a judge if they are suspected of a crime. an involuntary psychiatric hold is expiring or family member were outreach worker thinks they cannot care for themselves mental illness. is not a crime. and we need to do something to help those people. who get caught up in our system. again and again and again. a judge could order the county to create a care plan and provide clinical services, medications and housing over 12 to 24 months counties that don't face sanctions in the past, mental health advocates have opposed forced treatment. the state estimates 7 to 12,000 people would be eligible, many of them homeless. unacceptable
4:09 am
there's no compassion, stepping over people in the streets and sidewalks, compassionate reading about some one losing their life under 2 80. in an encampment. this new framework needs legislative approval and will require more resources for the courts. this on top of the 12 billion approved by the legislature and two billion proposed this year towards tackling homelessness. state republican senator patricia bates applauded the plan, but also called for a special session, saying a special session will give us an opportunity to put forward thorough policies that provide necessary oversight, accountability and transparency going on to say we have been spending billions of dollars for more than four decades now, and the problems have only gotten worse. as for timeline, the governor said he's working with lawmakers to put together a bill in the coming weeks, he said. ideally he would like to see something past and into action by the end of the year. in the newsroom. gregory ktvu, fox two news thank you, greg. alright let's check in with steve paulson. we are getting some

4:35 am
introduced a bill to ban all energy imports from russia. i'm all for that bandit. this is bipartisan. this means it actually has some legs. so nancy pelosi is with us which made me wonder. what am i doing? uh she's right, everyone. listen now, the white house says that kind of man would cause gasoline prices ago. even issues wealthiest billionaires. around the world. some people are volunteering to become foreign fighters and help ukraine defend itself against the russian invasion. some americans say they are considering lending their support as well. now we spoke with an expert on international law, who said since the u. s has not formally entered the war. that means americans going to ukraine aren't guaranteed protection as u. s citizens. if you're a combatant, which means you're a uniform member of an armed force. then that means you actually have certain right? i

4:38 am
says wanting people to get the help they need is an admirable goal. but forcing them into treatment is the wrong way to go about it. it's better to use a holistic approach to engage to do active, listening to do outreach to help them to embrace treatment in the long term. chan says. the governor's efforts are redundant, she says. san francisco already has several civil and criminal justice tools in place to determine if people need mental health care. the key , she says, is making sure patients get that help quickly once they say they need care. and what i think the way we should do is to aggressively fund programs and build up the capacity. so when somebody say i want help, or we can say can we help you offer you help? we have somewhere to send them for help. but on the streets of san francisco, many feel that something has to be done. daniel mena has struggled with mental health issues himself and says sometimes people cannot make their own decisions. about

we have our brain, but it's not going to last too much longer, because the system is on the way. but still maybe another couple 100. i think best case scenario would be about 1/10 of an inch for us here, but by nine o'clock i think this will be gone. that's the low that's on the way it's going to track moreover, towards the sierra nevada, which will give them snow and that will be coming in late tonight. more likely early saturday, so if you have to go to get up to the mountains again, 80 is the only way to go because you can't get up 50 right now. gulf as soon as you can, because late tonight will be very gusty winds. and then tomorrow morning, there'll be snow fifties on the temps here or low sixties for us cold and windy on saturday could be a few little little guy showers zipping by from the northwest and which starts to calm down sunday. back to warm next week. you guys all right, steve time is 5 11 a rare agreement on capitol hill across party lines still ahead with both democrats and republicans think the u. s should due to pressure russia. to end the invasion of ukraine and a disappointing decision for students hoping to go to cal up next, the court ruling that will prevent thousands from attending prevent thousands from attending the university.
