ican who goes too far defending the nra and would loosen laws on ammunition and gun sales. because for him, protecting the second amendment is everything. eric early. too extreme, too conservative for california. hello and welcome live from our studio 7 here at the cnn center in atlanta. i'm michael holmes. appreciate your company. coming up here on "cnn newsroom," ukraine's resolve. russia's unprovoked war on ukraine passes 100 days, leaving utter devastation with no end in sight. the police investigation into police failures intensifying in uvalde. in texas we're learning of more damning evidence about the police response to the school
10:01 pm
shooting. and the platinum jubilee celebrations in the u.k. minus the guest of honor. >> announcer: live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with michael holmes. welcome, everyone. the war in eastern ukraine now being described as a grinding slog with neither side appearing to make any significant gains in recent days. ukraine concedes russian troops have made some modest in roads in and around the key city of severodonetsk but were pushed back from nearby towns. britain's defense ministry says it expects russians will control all of the luhansk region within two weeks. the international red cross said the scale of destruction defies
10:02 pm
comprehension. but ukraine claims its forces have progressed into the southern kherson region. as the conflict surpassed 100 days ukraine's president, volodymyr zelenskyy, remained confident of the outcome. >> translator: we have been dedefending ukraine for 100 days. victory shall be ours. glory to ukraine. >> now, the human toll in ukraine almost incalculable. some 12 million ukrainians have been internally displaced by the fighting, according to president zelenskyy. and even if the war ended right now many of those people would not have homes to return to. cnn's ben wedemen in kyiv with the latest. >> reporter: russia's invasion of ukraine has now hit the 100-day mark. the critical battle is now in the eastern donbas region. ukrainian officials concede that russian forces now control up to
10:03 pm
80% of the city of severodonetsk, until now the most eastern city under control. it's been under intense and steady russian artillery bombardment for weeks and weeks and weeks. now, most of the civilians have fled the city, but as many as 800 people are still huddled in bomb shelters in the city's chemical complex. elsewhere in the donbas region russian forces are amassing for a renewed offensive against the city of slovansk, that according to the ukrainian high command. the first 100 days of this war have shattered moscow's ambitions. yesterday president volodymyr zelenskyy vowed in his words victory will be ours. yet victory or just an end to this war is still nowhere in sight. i'm ben wedemen, cnn, reporting
10:04 pm
from kyiv. the russian president putin is pushing back against accusation that he is using food as a weapon of war. ukraine says half of its grain exports are held up because of russia's blockade of its ports. but mr. putin claims russia is not stopping ukraine from exporting its food. rather he told a state broadcaster ukraine mind its ports not russia. the russian president also said russia can increase its grain production next year to help fill gaps in global supply. meanwhile the african union leader went directly to mr. putin to talk food supply. chairman matthew sall met with the russian president in sochi on friday. mr. sall said that sanctions against russia are making an already bad situation even worse. now now, ukraine is considered the bread basket for many across the
10:05 pm
globe. a top u.n. official said the grain exports if they don't resume, in his words, millions will die. steven fisher a political science professor at the university of california berkeley joins me now to talk about all this. professor, good to see you. 100 days into the war let's take the 30,000-foot view. what has this war taught us about global geopolitics and basically how the international system is run. the u.s. often talks about the struggle between democracy and autocracy. has this war had any effect on that struggle? >> i think it has. democrats, defenders of democracy around the world have really been on the offensive. it seems autocracy has been advancing, and it's been advancing on some claims that autocrats and would-be autocrats make such that, for example, decisions are made more swiftly and you can make better decisions not constrained by
10:06 pm
interest groups and public opinion and opposition parties in autocracies. we now see how disastrous it can be when the top leader is not constrained. there's nowhere around putin not to take this position, so he made this colossally stupid decision which was based on ridiculous assumptions the ukrainians would greet russian troops as liberators and nobody would stop them. meanwhile in democracies the guys under constant pressure under electors like biden are making massive decisions and showing competence on their side. corruption from the armed forces which it's a hallmark of autocracy is undermining the russian fighting force's capacity. putin has a really incompetent military and is being held by vastly undernumbered ukrainian forces. >> and morale through the floor on the russian side. sanctions of course in place. many western stores are closed, a lot of western products most of them gone from the shelves
10:07 pm
and so on. but many harsher sanctions on everything from spare parts to military technology, they're yet to fully hit. how much of the fallout from the war has begun to hit street level, hit pockets, if you like? and what could happen if it gets worse? >> it has actually begun to hit peoples pockets as you mention. but as you also say the worst is yet to come. look, we know in the states how hard it is to live under 8% inflation. that's what we've got right now. and of course inflation is high all over the world, but in russia it's running close to 20%. that's already affecting peoples pocketbooks in a big way. and inflation is going to rise. russia is teetering on the edge of default. after default it's going to be almost impossible for it to gain any money on global capital markets. that means no growth, higher unemployment. it means shoddy government services, and this is going to be -- this is the new normal for russians. so, you know, i do think this is
10:08 pm
actually going to take a toll on support for putin and for the war and especially as people grow weary over the months and the sanctions bite even more deeply. >> yeah, already a report coming out they're not being able to get spare parts and chips and so onto repair military systems, which is hurting the war effort. many believe that an extended stalemate is what is the near future in ukraine. what do you think russia -- do you think they're just wanting to put in place so-called facts on the ground so that territory gained is territory kept in any future deal? ukraine wouldn't agree to that, of course. >> indeed. that is putin's goal, but those facts on the ground are not facts for ukrainians or for the western alliance or for the rest of the world. they're only facts for putin. and ukrainians are not going to respect these so-called facts on the ground. the real fact to keep in mind any territory russia occupies
10:09 pm
right now or takes in the future is going to have to be defended in a state of permanent war because the ukrainians are not going to concede a square inch of territory. we know that now. they've made that clear. and after all they've suffered and all their achievements in the field we couldn't expect them to take any other position. as long as the west stands behind ukraine and so far it has the prospects for putin to establish any facts on the ground he could turn into territorial acquisition are very small. >> professor, appreciate it. we'll get you back. all right, survivors and others affected by the mass shootings in uvalde in texas and buffalo, new york, will have an opportunity to testify before the u.s. house oversight committee. the hearing next week will examine the urgent need for congress to pass common sense gun legislation, which a majority of americans do support. a texas state senator now saying the incident commander,
10:10 pm
meanwhile, at the shooting at the texas elementary school, police chief pete arradondo, didn't have a radio on him at the time of the shooting. cnn has reached out to the public safety officials and chief arradondo but have not received a response. a teacher aide from rob elementary is sharing her side of the story after police falsely blamed her for leaving the door open that the shooter used to enter the school. cnn's omar jimenez spoke with the attorney representing her and file this report. >> reporter: it was supposed to be an end of the year class party before it became a nightmare. >> she saw everything from the time he wrecked to the time she was taken out of there. >> reporter: the special education aide was meeting a coworker with food for the party when she saw a car crash, so her lawyer says she propped the door open, went back inside to get her phone and called 911 but to
10:11 pm
report the accident. then she returned to the door. >> as she looks and sees him, he has a weapon that she can't identify but a big weapon flung over him and he hops over the fence and starts running towards her. >> reporter: so she kicks the door shut. and she expected it to lock? >> absolutely she thought it would be locked. >> reporter: she scrambles into a nearby classroom as she begins to hear gunshots. >> he's inside now, she hides. the 911 call drops, they don't call her back. she doesn't attempt to call back because she doesn't want to hit any noise. there's some kind of counter she gets under but it's exposed. she thought at that point she was going to die and she made a piece of that. >> reporter: so she hears every single gunshot. >> every single gunshot. >> reporter: but she was one of the lucky ones who survived. days later, though, she hears law enforcement say she had left the door the shooter used open.
10:12 pm
and she's second guessing herself. >> right. it even made her second guess her own memories. and she had already spoken to the fbi and rangers and told them what happened. >> reporter: the rangers eventually publicly corrected the record. as the community grieves, a flurry of unanswered questions linger including more about texas school's police chief pete arradondo acting as incident commander during the shooting. >> i have been told this person did not have -- this person being the incident commander did not have radio communication, and i don't know as to why. >> reporter: and question if the 911 calls were properly relayed to first responders on the scene. one of those 911 calls came from a 10-year-old student who was inside the classroom. and according to transcripts reviewed by "the new york times" the student said there's a lot of bodies, and i don't want to die. my teacher is dead. my teacher is dead. please send help. send help for my teacher. she is shot but still alive. the call lasted about 17
10:13 pm
minutes. gunfire was heard in the background at times, and the call was made more than 30 minutes after the shooting began, "the times" reports. the teaching aide, amilia marin has filed teaching documents to get a deposition. with her attorney saying because to the shooter got the weapon on his 18th birthday he was likely planning the purchases beforehand. >> so his motivation was to get that gun when he was a minor. are there gun companies that are marketing to minors? is that what they're doing? and how many mass shootings do we are to have by 18-year-old men? it's cookie cutter. so what are they doing to change? >> reporter: now it's worth noting this pre-suit petition does not formally accuse the gun manufacturer of any wrongdoing, and instead it seeks to allow
10:14 pm
amilia marin to investigate whether she has a basis to file a claim against daniel defense. cnn, uvalde, texas. fears of recession may be lingering over the u.s. economy but new jobs are hardly in short supply. still ahead job creation steams ahead despite the inimpacts of high thereflation. and we go to london and also take a look at her majesty's lifelong love of horses and why the epsom derby is so dear to her heart. we'll l be right back. rupts my . but now, i can disrupt eczema wiwith rinvoq. rinvoq is not a steroid, topical, or injejection. it's one pill, once a day, that's e effective without topical steroids. many taking rinvoq saw clear or almost-clear skin while some saw up to 100% clear skin. plus, they felt fast itch relief some as early as 1 week.

10:24 pm
that is the same height as nelson's column which is a very tall thing in london and turns and turns for furlongs and you end upcoming up the straight and the racecourse is like that. it's not flat. it's like that. down and inside rail, it's a very, very tough racecourse for the thoroughbred. but it's the test -- the best test for a horse over a mile and a half. >> reporter: during her reign her majesty has missed the derby on just four occasions. jockeys who ride for her understand her devotion better than most. >> she can let the shoulders drop and relax and talk about horses. and she knows what she's talking about, too. she might look frail, but my goodness i can assure you, she's still as sharp minded as ever. >> many times i've watched her

the biden administration shining a light on the scourge of american gun violence, literally. the white house lighting up on friday night in recognition of the eighth national gun violence awareness day. multiple mass shootings have rocked the nation recently, and earlier this week president biden pleaded for stricter gun laws including a ban on assault-style weapon, tougher background checks and a higher minimum age to purchase some
10:31 pm
weapons. now, those measures are getting a cool reception from republican lawmakers who remain opposed to gun control laws. as tom foreman reports, they're doubling down on mental illness as the root cause of gun violence. >> reporter: in the wake of mass shootings there appears to be a blueprint for some republican leaders. brush off talk of gun control. >> it's never been about guns. >> reporter: call the killers crazy. >> we need to make it far easier to confine the violent and mentally deranged into mental institutions. >> reporter: and insist mental health is what matters. >> we as a government need to find a way to target that mental health challenge and do something about it. >> reporter: yet there is little evidence of top republican lawmakers broadly supporting such efforts. in a 2017 survey of how much of a state's budget goes to mental healthcare, the states that led the pack went democratic in the
10:32 pm
2020 presidential race outpacing those that leaned republican. in terms of the number of adults seeking care, low out-of-pocket costs, and providers per capita another ranking found not one of those red states in the top ten. >> we certainly know as mental health providers that our health care system is flawed and that the resources are not there. >> reporter: neuro sintist seth n norrholm sumged the vast majority of mass shooters are not mentally ill. >> in most cases it's planned out someone cruel to animals or someone who has a history of violence, that's more of a personality trait, more of who they are. >> reporter: what's more the claims are not evenly applied. a study of more than 200 mass shootings found in the media, white shooters were framed as good people suffering from extreme life circumstances and were 19 times more likely to be framed as suffering from mental illness compared to black
10:33 pm
shooters. still, within days of the buffalo and uvalde shootings the beat on the right went on. >> they were very obviously mentally ill. the people around them knew that. >> reporter: and even as texas faces yet another slaughter republican governor greg abbott keeps holding onto that idea. >> anybody who shoots somebody else has a mental health challenge, period. >> reporter: certainly there are republican leaders who support mental health care, and governor abbott's office tells cnn he's put a lot of funding and effort into it. yet when an advocacy group ranked the state in terms of access to mental health care texas came in dead last. tom foreman, cnn, washington. it seems there is a price to be paid for any republican going against the party line on guns. congressman chris jacobs has announced he won't be running for re-election after all after
10:34 pm
his gun control stance cost him the support of conservatives. the buffalo, new york, area representative called for an assault weapons ban and raising the minimum age for gun pufrss after the super market massacre in buffalo. meanwhile another former trump advisor is being charged with criminal contempt of congress for refusing to cooperate with the january 6th committee. peter navarro says he was arrested at a washington area airport on friday. he faces two contempt counts. one for not producing documents demanded by the committee and the other for failing to show up for subpoenaed testimony. navarro claims he was unable to cooperate because former president donald trump had a certain executive privilege in the matter, but the committee argued many of the topics had already been written about in his book. coming up here on the program, u.s. president joe biden cancels billions in student loan debt, but some say more is needed.

this week the biden administration cancelled $5.8 billion in college student debt for more than half a million borrowers, the largest loan cancellation from the administration to date. but millions of others are anxiously waiting for president biden to keep his campaign promise. >> it's been such trial and tribulations. >> reporter: rust she became the first in her family to earn a bachelors degree but she's also graduating with student loan debt. >> the last time i checked it
10:40 pm
was approximately $48,000. they come to find you. >> reporter: russell says a debt collector called her while she was working. >> they were like this is the debt collector basically collecting -- we were trying to find you. when are you going to pay your student debt? >> reporter: at one point russell temporarily dropped out of school. >> i did have to leave columbia and pay a balance that was due in order for me to go back. >> reporter: but she's not alone. data shows there is about $1.6 trillion in federal student loan debt. tavia ridgeway wants a six figure salary but right now she has nearly a six figure student loan debt. >> i'd be in the range of 80 to $100,000 just based on my tuition rates right now. >> reporter: that's after she became a resident advisor to cut down on her room and board costs. >> you should get a free education because you can't put a price on knowledge. >> i'm going to make sure everybody in this generation gets $10,000 knocked off of
10:41 pm
their student debt. >> reporter: on the campaign trail joe biden promised to cancel $10,000 in student loan debt for each of the 43 million people with federal student loans. due to the pandemic he did pause loan repayments until august 31st, but it is not clear if and when the white house will move forward with some form of permanent loan forgiveness despite pressure from fellow democrats at the other end of pennsylvania avenue. >> you don't need congress. all you need is the flick of a pen. >> reporter: senate majority leader chuck schumer pushing to cancel $50,000 debt per borrower. biden has rejected those calls. >> i am not considering $50,000 debt reduction. >> reporter: the white house does say biden is considering some debt forgiveness for those making up to $125,000. gabby like ridgeway was a resident advisor. she calls it a broken campaign
10:42 pm
promise. >> i think this was something that biden has promised and something i feel like he hasn't delivered on yet. during the campaign or just knowing this is something a lot of people who voted for him, that this is something that they wanted -- >> i say it would help a little bit. if anything i'd want my full tuition covered, but you know that's not the world we live in. >> reporter: russell welcomes any relief. >> it would help me so much. it's like an emotional experience because it's taken me so long and i almost gave up and -- sorry, just thinking about it. >> reporter: and a year and a half into his presidency biden has canceled more than $17 billion in student loans, but that is tied to faulty loan practice investigations and institutions that no longer exist. cnn, chicago. now this year's scripps spelling bee in the united states came down to the wire, a
10:43 pm
first ever sudden death round called a spell-off, so lightening fast it left spectators in awe. >> she emerged the victor after she and her 12-year-old rival tied in the opening round. the spell-off never used before tested how many words they could spell correctly in 90 seconds. logan nailed 21 of the words. >> once a speller always a speller. no matter if it's the school bee or national bee i think once you develop that work ethic, that passion for words, that commitment and that ability to

spell, i think you never really lose it. >> logan receives a $50,000 cash prize, a commemorative medal and the scripps trophy. now, we're tracking a storm system heading towards florida. it's already having a deadly impact in the caribbean. we'll get details from the cnn weather center ahead when we come back. t-mobile covers more highway miles with 5g than verizon. t-mobile has more 5g barss in more places than anyone. another reason t-mobile is the leader in 5g. people with plaque psoriasis, are rethinking the choices they make. like the shot they take. the memories they create. or the spin they initiat otezla. it's a choice you can make. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differentl with otezla, you can aieve clearer skin. don't usif you're allergic to otezla. otezla can cause serious alrgic reactions. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting.
10:45 pm
otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines and if you're pregnant or planning to be. otezla. show more of you. ugh-stipated... feeling weighed down by a backedup gut" miralax is different. it works naturally with the water in your body to unblock your gut. your gut. and your mood will follow.

millions of people in southern florida, cuba and the bahamas under tropical storm warnings. they're bracing for the system in that area to gain strength and become tropical storm alex in the coming hours. it'll likely make landfall in florida on saturday afternoon. as you can see it's already slamming cuba where one person has been found dead. 50,000 people are without power in havana. the system expected to bring heavy rain, flooding and possibly tornados. cnn meteorologist karen maginnis
10:49 pm
is monitoring that storm for us. what are you seeing out there, karen? >> the national hurricane center is expected to bring us an update at 2:00. we sometimes get it a little bit early, so i was checking it. haven't received an update just yet. this is our unnamed tropical system so far, but still has impacts that are going to be fairly substantial over the next 24 hours. if you have traveled to south florida or into the keys and you're looking at this you may think your entire weekend is wiped out, but in fact it looks like this is going to move out fairly rapidly. we're going to get you the information. this came in about 11:00 eastern. so 2:00 a.m. update is going to be necessary here. 40-mile per hour winds. the deep conrection is along that eastern edge of this ill-defined system. so very heavy downpours. we could see storm surge here 1 to 2 feet depending on the high tide. and even a few miles difference
10:50 pm
will make some major changes because we could see some inundation in some locally folf focused areas and less in others. that miami city area with heavy population density could see some heavy impacts from flooding but also we could see some brief spin ups of some tornados. this is what we're looking at in this forecast radar. when we watch it move across the south central region of miami, areas from naples to fort myers into the florida keys over to miami and up towards west palm beach we're going to see that rain move in and move out, but in its wake we could see as much as 12 inches of rainfall. generally speaking 3 to 6 inches, some locally heavier amounts, this is the forecast radar. there you can see from fort myers all the way over to fort pierce and the miami met roplex region then it moves out. but don't be fooled by this. if you're traveling to these beautiful beaches in south
10:51 pm
