"We met Ukrainians with amazing survival stories in the face of the Russian assault and we saw growing bread lines in a country that was one of the largest food exporters in the world. So we're taking food from the hungry children to give it to the starving children. What's Eurovision? Well, it rivals any major European sporting event. Pitting nation against nation with most of the continent tuning in on the final night. Exciting. We went to Iceland and talked to the president. Yes, the actual president about why winning Eurovision this year would be a dream for this island dancing in the North Atlantic. And really, how much did anyone know about Sweden? Before ABBA won Eurovision in 1974. More than a million people have become followers of a conspiracy theory that birds aren't real. That's right, the birds you think you see flying in the sky are actually government surveillance drones. Sound insane? It's meant to the birds aren't real movement is thankfully pure satire.

Fighting has spilled beyond Ukraine into neighboring Russia and Moldova. Today, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she and a U.S. delegation met with Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky and pledged U.S. support until victory is won. Congress is considering $33 billion in aid while the U.S. Russia's heavy artillery into the fight. Yesterday, more Russian missiles struck the vital port city of Odessa. Odessa is a major exporter of grain, and tonight the head of the United Nations World Food Program tells us the seaport there must be reopened to prevent starvation. The World Food Program is feeding the hungry in Ukraine while fighting famine around the world. We traveled to Ukraine and the port of Odessa to witness the harvest of war. Faith draws hundreds to a church in Odessa, a city where every day the wars evacuees collect 10,000 loaves of hope. They come wearing the clothes of a previous life, with nothing in their sacks, no job, no home, just a chance to endure another day of war without hunger. Around the corner, those who already had worries enough collect mercy in boxes that feed a family of four for two weeks. Pasta, oil, canned meat. It comes to 38 and a half pounds, so a mom can really use a hand. In Ukraine, the United Nations World Food Program is running hundreds of sites like this. How many people do you fear might be starving in this country? In Odessa, we spoke with David Beasley, the executive director of the UN's World Food Program. You got to assume that millions are at stake right now. We're reaching about 2 million already. We hope to scale up to 4 million in the weeks ahead in 6 million beyond that. It's going to be dependent upon two things. Money and access. But access has been cut off to the war's victims in the heavily besieged cities of eastern Ukraine. We can't reach them. We're blocked. We can't get into the besieged cities like marital. Nikolai. And Kirsten and I could go on and on. They have to be starving. Why would the Russians not allow food to be delivered to starving people? It's beyond imagination. Why would you deny innocent victims of war food? Non combatants. It's just wrong. Evil. Evil. That Andre cool doff has witnessed. Cold arms family escaped this. Their hometown of Mary U pole had 400,000 residents, Russian forces couldn't take it, so they are shelling. Mary pole to ruin. We all lost loved ones, relatives, houses, jobs. He told us. I mean, everything that we would call a normal, everyday life. All of it is gone. You shot a video in Mario pole. Why did you shoot it? And what is on it? I filmed the video to let people know what was really going on. Cooled off recorded the evidence somehow numb.

"Tonight, the director of the FBI on the rise in violent crime in America, lessons from January 6th and what he believes is the greatest threat to the United States. Encounter intelligence does anything were you more than Russia? The biggest threat we face as a country from a counterintelligence perspective is from the People's Republic of China and especially the Chinese Communist Party. They are targeting our innovation. Our trade secrets are intellectual property on a scale that's unprecedented in history. 11 years ago, a team of two dozen navy seals flew under the cover of darkness into abbottabad Pakistan to carry out one of the most important counter terrorism missions in history. To capture or kill Osama bin Laden. 30 minutes into that mission, the seals had their man, and something they were not expecting. Thousands of pages of Osama bin Laden's personal letters and notes. How important was that last minute decision by the CLT? To take those documents. Bin Laden's greatest fear was about exposing Al-Qaeda's secrets. Do you think New York City has had all kinds of larger than life mayors, but never anyone quite like Eric Adams. Dapper Lee dressed with a pierced ear and dramatic life story. Spend money. And says and does things that a lot of other democratic politicians would not. There's probably a lot of liberals who are concerned you're a Republican. Listen, the 8.8 million people in this city, 30 million opinions, but there's one mayor. That's going to make the decisions. I'm Lesley Stahl. I'm Bill Whitaker. I'm Anderson Cooper.

"How frequently are these attacks on medical infrastructure happening? Daily. And that's worse. In fact, attacking healthcare workers and healthcare facilities is literally the original war crime. From the Geneva convention in 1864, exactly. This is a hospital in Nico leave. Another hospital in mariupol. The leu gangsta children's hospital, a hospital in vol Novak, and the maternity hospital. In mariupol. Why do so many Russian oligarchs live in the United Kingdom? We traveled to London or London grad as it sometimes called to find out. Was this all a strategy for the oligarchs to build influence here in the UK? I think the evidence is pretty clear that in some cases it was. These are beautiful. Laurie Anderson's largest ever U.S. exhibition is currently on display at the Smithsonian's hirschhorn museum on the national mall in Washington, D.C.. It's an Odyssey through her singular creative life. It seems very ominous to me. Good. Wow. In one room, she's painted words and images that seem to explode onto the walls and floor. It's a kind of multi dimensional sketchbook of her thoughts, dreams, and stories. I'm Lesley Stahl. I'm Bill Whitaker. I'm Anderson Cooper. I'm Sharon alfonsi. I'm John wertheim. I'm Scott pelley. Those stories and more tonight on 60 minutes. Tonight, the Russian army has abandoned its attempt to take Ukraine's capital city. Kyiv is still under aerosol, but Russian ground troops are retreating from the suburbs after suffering grievous losses. New images of liberated neighborhoods are scenes of ruin, with evidence of many civilian deaths. A Pentagon source tells us the greatest battle now is for the coastal city of mariupol, more than 100,000 civilians are trapped there. Also, Russian missiles have exploded in the major port city of Odessa. Russia expected Ukraine to fall in a matter of days. But now, after 6 weeks, the Russian military has failed to seize even one of its strategic objectives. 8 days ago, Russian missiles exploded in lviv, the western Ukrainian city near a Poland and NATO. The attack was perhaps a message to President Biden, who was speaking in Poland that same hour. The name lviv means city of lions and this past week we traveled there to find a defiant people, braving air strikes, rushing in medical supplies and sheltering the innocent. This is the attack on lviv. March 26th, as Ukraine fought this inferno have mister Biden came to the end of a precisely crafted speech, then ad libbed his disgust for Vladimir Putin. For God's sake, this man can not remain power. Among diplomats, it was heresy, but in the bomb shelters of lviv, it was a prayer. The region centered on this nearly 800 year old city, has barricaded its monuments and opened its heart with shelter for half a million homeless Ukrainians. We want to go home. We want to go home now, but they're shooting there. Larissa, her son and daughter fled the city of kharkiv on a 19 hour train, with no food or water. Bombing, bombing, bombing she told us bombing day and night. It's like Armageddon, she said. 10 million Ukrainians have fled Armageddon, 4 million out of the country, 6 million, compressed into Ukrainian cities. In the city of lions, you can spot the evacuation shelters by the cargo pallets outside. They're foundations for new homes. This is a basketball court blanketed in donated bedding. The homeless, wrapped in compassion, rests on the lattice of the wooden pallets. The only place they have in the world measures ten feet by three and a half. The shelters are dank, with the faint, acrid smell, of too many people, and too small a space. The rules are implied. Keep quiet, mind your palate, do not show fear to the children. Food and medicine are in short supply. Their only wealth is time. Endless hours of worry, broken only by the sight of a new arrival, or the whale. Of a siren. Air raid warnings break up the day. We figure out what's going on with the sirens. In send Ukrainians Tapping for a new app, they can't live without. Called air alarm. It sets off the phone in an air raid and pinpoints where the bombs are falling. On this evacuation, we ran into arena. A woman who'd heard one siren too many. And they don't ask. Why? Why are they wreaking this destruction? What did we do to them? She said of the Russians. Blatant. When you look down at a curb and you see a little child lying there, dead. What did she do? Hundreds of our little children are being killed. Little children. Do you see? We did see. In an image from the city of maru pole. A blood stained baby blanket wrapped in 18 month old boy. The mother follows her partner into a hospital. Her child, named Kira, did not survive. We want to warn you that what you're about to see of this family is hard to watch. But this is Russia's.

"We were nearing last call on the grandest of British institutions the pub, after enduring for hundreds of years as centers for schmoozing and boozing, pubs were going the way of mourning newspapers. Afternoon tea, and the whole idea of empire. A range of factors undercut the kind of neighborhood joint where everyone knows your name. Then came COVID, which kept most British pubs close for more than a year. But last summer, the UK reopened and not unlike an overserved patron, the pub story started to stagger and lurch in an unexpected direction, and as John wertheim first reported in October, maybe it's not quite closing time after all. 1200 plus years old. Yes. A man walks into a pub. Of course he does. In this case, it's a very old pub. Ye olde fighting cocks in saint albans outside London. Its landlord or publican is Christo topalli. So your pub is one of dozens in this country that claims to be the oldest ever. It turns out there's a bit of a misconception which one is the oldest and what the oldest pub is. So we're the oldest pub, the first brick was laid in 7 93 and the oldest inhabited building in Europe. Vikings invaded England in the same year, the first brick was laid in 7 93. I suspect Vikings would like this place. They would love this place. Before we go further, let's define our terms. We're not talking about mere bars, or for the love of God, sports bars. These are pubs, short for public houses. They exist as much for conviviality as for what's on tap. Cold lager end to the shock of.

"In September, body itself brought out his paintbrush to convey his outrage for China's crackdown on Hong Kong. Hong Kong's leader Carrie lam is a puppet of Xi Jinping. Body itself melted their faces. Last month in northern Italy, a center of art, that combined image greeted visitors as body itself held his first major solo exhibition in the city of brescia. It almost didn't happen. At the last minute China tried to flex its muscle. They actually riding threatening letters. It's like a black melding, you know, if you do bother to tell them, maybe in the future, our collaboration will be problematic. Specifically, the Chinese embassy in Rome demanded the show be canceled because the exhibition was full of anti Chinese lies. Would seriously wound the feelings of the Chinese people. And posed a threat to friendly relations between China and Italy. The Italian authorities held firm, and the show went on. There was a nod to what body itself sees as she's willfully slow response to COVID. And he paid homage to the Uighur minority that China has imprisoned. To what extent are you representing the people who can't express themselves inside China? I think this is the reality that Chinese people do not have a sense of safety that they can speak freely. But I am in this very privileged position that I'm not in China. So I have every responsibility to make my voice to be heard to become their voices.

Help, for heroes, has been the mission of the Carnegie fund for 117 years. It has bestowed 10,000 medals and awarded $40 million. And back in 1904, Andrew Carnegie sensed what science has now confirmed. Heroes, he said, can not be created. They act on an impulse. A mysterious gift to the few.

Like fifteen thousand jobs. He's a senior writer for sports illustrated. He is a correspondent for sixty minutes is an analyst for the tennis channel and he is the author of glory days the summer of nineteen eighty four and the ninety days that change sports and culture. That book is out this week. in hardcover head to amazon where you can purchase this or wherever books are sold and i'm pleased to be joined by john worth i'm john. I'm taping this shortly after the conclusion of the french open. I mean you must be tired for you. I rally nice to be here crazy. French open but We're we're off to the next thing which regrettably book promotion. Thanks for having me your you welcome. We'll get to the french open a little bit. Because the one thing. I will talk. I would like to get john's perspective on Now asaka and and everything that happened since her decision to skip press conferences and then obviously pull out of the french open. So john the here. The the tissue that connects this book are all these kind of remarkable things that happen during a very short time in nineteen eighty. Four whether that's sort of the beginning of the The michael jordan explosion the nineteen eighty-four olympics wrestlemainia and wwe. ming phenomenon. the karate kid coming out there's a chapter in your book on Abc espn and sort of the the deal that ultimately helped explode cable television espn's riches into the universe so at a certain point you must have noticed that all of these things are happening around the same time. When did this idea come to you. Good question i i did a piece for For our former colleague. Ted keys for sports illustrated. I'm mike experience with the eighty four olympic trials. When i was in middle school they were held in my hometown. Indiana jordan was air barkley. Was there stockton malone and zero security. It just seemed like the most normal thing to be walking down the street. And like there was michael jordan. You know drinking a smoothie looking for a ride to the mall and someone approaching a man. This'll be a great book and mccollum had done the dream team book and i didn't think you could do a whole book on the eighty four olympic team. But then i started poking around in the almighty newspapers dot com. Which is the every journalist secret weapon and you realize like every single day brought a news item that we still can recall today and you know what news bird. Magic played in the game. Seven of the final media the finals for the first time when front of new commissioner david stern and a few days after that jordan was drafted. And a guy named mike. Tyson lost at the olympic trials. The same day john mcenroe. What wimbledon every single day was this explosion of sports news in. So you know there's certainly an element of nostalgia and coincidences. But i think you hit on it. Which is what. I also realizes you had this this binding force what what made it more than just a series of coincidences. Was this rise of cable. This rise. This realization sports equals commerce and this was more than game. This was business. It did seem like this was a summer when at all really crystallized how do you. This is a very seems to me. Maybe the The principal challenge for the author. In this case you. How do you navigate all this into a into a narrative that that works. That is a great question. And that's a challenge. I mean are sort of standalone chapters but hopefully there's some themes woven woven into it But no i mean that's that's always the challenge of this bill. Bryson did a great book on the summer of nineteen twenty seven and that was That was a bit of a model for this. And it's lindbergh it's it's the yankees and louisiana politics. That was a bit of the model. But you also sort of had to go chronologically because you can't you know if you can't write about the olympics before you write about the rise of jordan and david fog and emptied drafted so the chronology was sort of a crunch but i tried to weave it in so it wasn't just in june happened. This happened. this happened in july august. I remind me if. I'm right about this in reading. This book did did michael jordan. Call you mcenroe or called. You like tennis. Sky is to have my recollection man Yeah when i was what i was in middle school. He did for this book. He did not participate Happily one of the few people who who didn't because a lot of people were great but Yeah when i was in i again this is. This is all in my little hometown. In the mid in bloomington indiana and i would give the sleepy count to begin with especially in the summer when when school's out session and all these sports not a sports nerd and i would walk around town with my tennis racket and michael jordan was something i've i've run into all the time and they would hold practice in the assembly hall..

"I don't think it is. Yeah that's fair. I agree he's fair. You're smart your smartphone. That was all I needed to all right. Thanks guys. We'll talk next week. What are you got? I'm going to go under on on Denver here I look I see with a little bit of hesitancy but I don't like the quarterback Drew Lock was really concerned last year. His numbers are skewed by that one game in Houston where they just totally torched the Texans but that was it I and the rest of the year he was. He was very conservative passer. I don't think this defense is stand on its head good and and sort of carry you anymore and I know I. I love the weapons abroad in love. Jerry Judy Love Cortlandt Sutton Love Caja Handler. It's a lot of new faces and new offensive coordinator there. Pat Shurmur comes in as basically you know the defacto offense have head coach here. A lot of change for young quarterback who I don't think it was very impressive last year I think they are last pleased. His division I think the chargers being pretty I think Vegas is is I don't know it's like eight win team but I think the broncos might be looking at a ten loss season here interesting. No no love for drew la. No no and look I could be wrong. I mean the guy's talented just the way he played last year so conservative so frustratingly conservative except for that one Houston game. Yeah he that was boy. You just gave me such P. T. S. day the money I lost that game charts. Oh my God. That's right. They went into Houston and just annihilated them Yeah it's interesting that the three teams in this division are all seven and a half but Matlock the chiefs. I just my God. Eleven seem so low to me.

"Qb's in the middle rounds and the whole NFL has agreed three times over that. That guy is probably a backup. So that's how I would view that now but I'm sure we'll hear more about e sin at some point and maybe he'll make me look dumb in he'll be a pro bowl or one day but I don't know I don't get I don't over the top about the mid round. Qb's way I think it's easy to and let's go onto the Jaguars here who we didn't touch on much in the first right. I guess we really didn't talk about the south much at all but they two first round picks CJ Henderson and Kilovolt chason look. This is how they they lost jalen Ramsey in AJ so cj Henderson is in there. They're losing yachting Gakugei. So Chase on is in and that's kind of yeah we're we're resetting with these guys. They just had on rookie deals with guys rookie deals and it's it's kind of hard to stomach if you're Jaguar's fan and it's not like this. They're basically trying to rebuild the roster to make it into what it was two or three years ago the reason it's hard to stomach really three years ago and they were the AFC championship game. The reason it's hard to stomach is because the guys that are God we're not washed up at all. Aj Buoy was moved for money reasons and is going to be eventually moved for money. Reasons Ramsey already was telling Smith you know no one's asked if he's coming back shelvin heard a word uttered about him. It sounded like it was a sabbatical year ago. But he's you don't hear about them so he walked away from football for good. All these guys are Star Academy beyond start. They're not star caliber. They are stars in their mid twenties. And they're not here anymore and Klaas cable got traded and he's a little bit older but he was the best player on defense last year. So they're drafting guys to replace stars and the chances of all these picks hitting again actually becoming what the guys before them were are very low. Yeah that is that is very true. Said they they haven't traded in Goch Way There now reports and maybe they will try and hold onto in Gakugei Look at at this point. I think the the the well has been poisoned. I think Gaga is not playing with the Jaguars ever again so i. I don't know I don't know how that plays itself out. I The guy wants out. Maybe just get him out. He's not coming he. He's not under contract with you. Anyway you franchise tag them. He played out his rookie deal. So maybe just Just just go just get you can get and go. I'm surprised that they could have gotten. I would think they would have gotten good value for them this year. Because of the paucity of big time edge rushing talents in this draft and the number of teams at could've used a guy like that so I'm a little surprised I know if I had a first round pick unless it was in the top ten. I would give it up for an awkward. I would do that without a whole lot of consideration. Tha- that guy is a true dynamic explosive edge bender. Yeah I mean the problem is teams are looking at you. Know you gotta give them some in the neighborhood of twenty million annually so if you got to pay him and you gotTa Pay Draft Capital Forum that you know you don't WanNa Know WanNa do both is the problem. And that's yeah that's that's I totally understand. That depends on your situation than Indianapolis obviously did both with the trade for force buckner but they had an abnormal amount of cap space available. So the money's relative. The money's relative to your cap space which really is best illustrated by the Jacksonville Jaguars who had no cap space. If you weeks ago yeah they on day two they got viscous the Colorado Receiver Rav but certainly a home run threat You know probably more gadget guy this point in his career. But you're not going to complain about more weapons for Garner Minzhu here in in his second season And in Devon Hamilton the Big Sort of You know less less disruptive more sort of Run defending defensive tackle from Ohio State. That will play over the center so in these four. Three one gap schemes. Which Jacksonville is very much that you still have. What amounts to a nose? Tackle a guy. You still need one big bodied guy. He's not going to sit there and just clog up all day long. But that's unique that kind of presence and that kind of guy that's what they're trying to get in Hamilton and they don't need him to play right away necessarily they have some other options there but the other options are Rodney Gunter Abra Jones in the last year of his deal. They're not as pure of knows textile players as what it appears. Hamilton might be and Let's go onto the Tennessee. Titans Isaiah Wilson in the first round. He obviously he steps in for Jack. Conklin you would presume as a rookie Little bit raw a very big man. We'll see how well he moves on some of these These wide zone runs Second Round Christian Fulton the Lsu cornerback who A lot of people only watch the national championship game and Fulton did not play very well. Net game but with whether this is good or bad. I mean he was picked on all season because at Lsu the the the best The best cornerback. They have there is a true freshman. Daryl Stanley who is not not obviously eligible for this draft but basically playing opposite Stanley. He just got thrown at constantly last year So Bolton steps in I guess that signals at Logan Ryan will not be back in Tennessee and And Yeah that's for sure. You're you're too early contributors here in this glass well. I have not studied the championship. Game Film Myself. People who I respect said on film Fulton's championship was not as bad as it appeared on. Tv In when you play as much man coverage as lsu played at times that's GonNa Happen to cornerbacks very few teams that play man coverage have any corners that are just brick walls for a receiver to deal with. Yeah and those Clinton also has t higgins thirty third and Justin Ross. Assuming comes out next year I mean. That's a top ten candidate right there. They have star receivers. Sure I mean those are the kind of guys that he's GonNa anyone's going to have to cover in the NFL. But that's a that's a fair point as well. The other thing is Fulton in Tennessee. They're gonNA play a lot of his own coverage and it's about disguising the coverage and getting to it in different ways but they don't ask their to line up in guard a guy for three seconds on an island in space very often so it's yet to be smart enough to play and it's it's hard to play inside than outside in that system that's true of any system but if Fulton has enough football awareness and I would love to know what kind of conversations I've had with him leading up to the draft. I would imagine they feel comfortable with where he is there if he has that and then he's going to have an opportunity and I guess. I wonder if this means Jackson then becomes the slot guy. 'cause Fulton you do. We agree is probably more pure outside type of corner. It sounds like I would think so. Yeah Yeah Malcolm. Butler has the body type to play the slot. It really hasn't done that a whole lot in his career. I'd be interesting to see. Who Replaces Logan Ryan? I still think that's an enormous loss for the titans. In part because a slot defender is still part of the run front. A lot of the time and Logan Rain was a very good run defender. None of these other guys. I don't know about Fulton's tackling. Maybe he's okay there but even then he's not going to be in the slot anyway. Most Likely Jackson Malcolm Butler. They're willing run defenders but they don't have the bodies to really fill gaps and take on blocks away. That Logan Ryan did Day to they took Barrington Evans. The running back from Appalachian State who presumably steps into the Dan. Lewis role here in this offense though Obviously they derrick Henry harder than ever last season and If you like quarterback seventh round they took Cole McDonald Out of Hawaii. Who IS he was he was fun. He had a lot of highlights. He had a lot of lowlights is so Any L. If he's forced into action maybe having a little bit more of a defined offense to play out of with the play action stuff Maybe that unleashes something a little bit better here everyone. I'm John. Wertheim senior writer at sports illustrated in our new podcast record. We're opening up more than sixty years of the SL ball.

Or wherever you get your podcasts with that we move onto the AFC north and alphabetically. Your winners are the Baltimore Ravens. Who also happen to be a team that had a yet another very good draft year. We talk about Patrick. Queen stepping in for them on the on the Friday show round to the take J. Dobbins is actually not realize and I just had no sense of time but I was like what is marking or twenty seven twenty. Eight and marketing arms can be thirty one soon. He'll be thirty one in December so obviously he had the calf injury last year The guys behind him Justice Hill is is. I think very has a very specific set of skills. Same with Gus Edwards and those guys might be nice compliments but Dobbins seems like a little bit more of a Sort of complete back in that offense and what they want in Baltimore is a guy who will stay on track like the track of the run Howard design. They want the guy to play within that design. So that's one reason. I almost guarantee you gary. If they had to choose between Mark Ingram and Levian bell which they basically did at the time they signed Ingram even if you take the money factor out of it. I bet you they would've taken ingram. That's how committed they are to wanting a back going to play on schedule and within the designs they don't want a guy it's GonNa dance around and try to do his own thinking even if the guy's great at it like Levy on Belkin be and the reason they want those on schedule. Bax is because with Lamar Jackson and all the moving pieces. They have what they're tight ends and how they scheme their running game offense coordinator. Greg Roman believes that his designs will win if they are executed properly and so far. He's been right about that. So Dobbins I'm sure feel is similar to Ingram in that sense because they would not go after him unless they were sure that he will fit exactly how they wanNA play with them. Are Jackson out there and They took Queen and round one. They take Maliki Harrison at pick ninety eight on day two and Harrison is sort of the the the opposite of Queen I mean. He's he's an early down thumper he's probably got you're going to have to take off the field on on third downs which is fine because they only play one linebacker on third down anyway they put in a bunch of safeties and extra corners and Patrick Queen is going to be the guy who's in eventually if not right away in week one. In those scenarios there are other day two guys just in Mattie Bouquet. The defensive tackle sort of an up field guy and we kind of wonder if they'd address receiver in the draft. I guess this might have been sort of a vote of confidence for miles. Boykin at this point They do take Devon to. He's a burner but he's really a slot guy at a Texas so I guess Boykin is who they are hoping will emerge as the Guy Opposite Hollywood Brown and then do. Vernay is is another piece in this. Yeah we'll see how that goes. I'm still getting a feel for miles. Boykin I brown Markey's Brown. We know what he is. He's what he was coming. I was going to be a vertical threat. He might have to catches for ten yards in one game and then they'll have four for one hundred eighty the next week. I mean that's the kind of receiver he'll be. So it's it's I don't think it's a totally defined receiving core quite yet gary but Boykin is still a work in progress and maybe they feel better about where he is behind the scenes.
