"Now on WTO, now to Ukraine, as rescuers there in the city of nipro are no longer looking for survivors after that huge missile strike that killed 45 people on Saturday. It struck an apartment building there. They now say this is just a recovery mission. 45 people as we mentioned were dead, 79 wounded more than two dozen are still missing 400 people are homeless. WTF national security correspondent JJ green joining us live with more on what caused all of this JJ? Authorities are still combing through the wreckage of this powerful explosion. According to our understanding, this was a cut 22 missile. Now these are the anti ship missiles. Jury said, adviser to Ukraine's minister of defense says the missile that hit that apartment building was designed to hit an aircraft carrier. They have used a low precision essentially a missile to target a residential area. And that missile, he says. Gary's about 950 kilograms of explosive. And it was indeed explosive. The carnage that that missile caused his fueled a renewed effort to get Russia pushed off of the UN Security Council, reporting live, JJ green, WTO feed news. And JJ, there have been some questions about just how many weapons Russia has left in this fight. There have been reports recently they were running out of missiles where do things stand. I spoke with Yuri sack about this and he said that Ukrainian military has learned that Russia is again making new missiles. In fact, they make enough every month to facilitate at least two or three of these massive attacks that we've seen so much of in the last few months. So what they've managed to do is to secure the materials to make these weapons despite international sanctions. But international experts think that Ukraine has the upper hand in this attack. That's resulted them in them rather getting the weapons that they need to more effectively fight against Russia. The next thing they need are some of these long-range weapons that they can use to take out Russia's drone operation in Crimea. That appears to be the thing that Russia can rely on more than these other missiles which are more expensive and take a lot longer to manufacture. Back to you.

From NPR news, this is all things considered, I'm Elsa Chang in Culver City, California. And I'm Sasha Pfeiffer in Washington, with winter approaching, Russian attacks on Ukraine are increasingly targeting the country's energy infrastructure. Earlier today, Russian rockets hit energy facilities in multiple cities, including the capital Kyiv. It was the second day in a row the city has woken up to explosions. And pairs Nathan rott is in Kyiv and joins us high Nate. Hey, thanks. What details have you been able to learn about today's strikes? Yeah, so here in Kyiv, there was a series of explosions this morning on the eastern side of the nipro river, which runs right through the middle of the city. And local officials say an electrical facility was targeted, three people were killed. And that was just here in Kyiv. Explosions were also heard in nipro, another major city in south central Ukraine and in gitomer, which is in the northwest part of the country. Local authorities there were saying that there was a loss of electricity and water and that hospitals were actually running on backup generators. So as we mentioned, this is the second day in a row of this kind of targeting. Does that indicate that this is a deliberate attempt to go after Ukraine's energy sources? It definitely is. You know, Russia's defense ministry has said that they are targeting exclusively energy and military facilities. That said, we did visit a site yesterday here in Kyiv after a drone strike aimed at a heating facility that also hit a residential building across the street, and that attack killed at least 5 civilians, including sadly a woman who was 6 months pregnant. I talked to a resident of the building next to the one that was hit. She was standing outside her name was Tamara boru Asheville, and she was pretty blunt about what she thinks Russia is trying to do to Ukraine right now. This terrorist they are targeting

"Search and tracker blocking with one download. Duck duck go, privacy, simplified. Things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. From har cave in the east to lviv in the west, Russian missiles have hit more than a dozen cities in Ukraine today, deaths are being reported throughout the country. It's the most aggressive barrage of air strikes against Ukraine since the early days of Russia's invasion. Russian president Vladimir Putin says the aerial assault is a response to an attack over the weekend on a key bridge linking Russia to occupied Crimea, explosions also rocked the capital Kyiv for the first time since June and right in the center of the city. And Kat lonsdorf are in Kyiv and they both join us now. Hey, you two. Hi there. Hey, let's go do it with you. Jason, I'm going to let you kick us off. Just give us a sense of the extent of these strikes by Russia on Ukraine today. Yeah, I mean, we still don't know the exact number of missiles that were launched against Ukraine. I'd still be tallied and there are still more that have been coming in. But officials here at one point said they counted more than 70 and had successfully shot down roughly half of them. The ones that did get through the air defense systems, they targeted just about every major city. As you mentioned from lviv out in the west to cities in the middle of the country, nipro, harkey, and east, areas in the north up near the border with Belarus, and very significantly right here in the capitol. Some of these were missile strikes, some were drone attacks. There's a lot of damage and a lot of casualties. Cat jump in because I know you have spent a lot of today on the road. You woke up this morning in another city in nipro, what did you see there? Yeah, well, like much of the country we were woken up by a series of loud explosions near the city center. And when it was safe, we drove over to one of the places that was hit. It was a bus stop in the middle of a residential area surrounded by high rise apartment buildings, and a missile that hit right in front of a bus on its route in morning rush hour. The bus was destroyed and people were standing around kind of in shock, nearly all the windows were blowing out. There was glass everywhere, it smelled of sewage because lots of manhole covers had been blown off. And one other man was leaning out of what had been the windows on his balcony. He was 81 year old Victor Shevchenko. And he said that he had been watering his plants on his balcony just a few minutes before the blast, and he went inside to cook breakfast. These are the explosion nearly knocked him over. I'm also one more thing, you know, there was this feeling today that not just in nipro, but I was hearing it from Ukraine's all over the place

I'm glad you're safe, but for now, the Ukrainians are making headway in both the east and the south. What are we watching for next? Well, Putin has been trying to mobilize hundreds of thousands of Russian reinforcements who are supposed to be making their way to the front lines soon. Ukraine is trying to take back as much land as they can before that happens if that happens. We've been hearing about extremely low morale in those who have been mobilized for Russia and just poor preparation, lack of equipment. And Putin is still saber rattling about the use of nuclear weapons if Ukraine attacks what he sees as Russian soil, which is how we consider these four regions of Ukraine.

"Fighting around a nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine is raising fears of a nuclear accident, and with it the risk of radiation exposure far outside Ukraine. Yeah, think about this for a minute. Russian forces have occupied this plan since March and in the last week they have used the nuclear power plant as a place from which to stage attacks against Ukrainians. Joining us now to bring us up to speed is NPR's Joanna cassis, who's in the Ukrainian city of nipro, hi Joanna. Hi, Leila. So what's the latest on the fighting at the plant? Well, we know that the attacks really picked up about a week ago as Ukrainian forces continued to counter offensive to take back the occupied region of her son in the south. Ukraine says Russia is responding by lobbing rockets and missiles from perhaps the most sensitive occupied territory, the Zappos nuclear power station. Experts say it's the first act of nuclear power complex caught up in the crossfire of a war. And Ukraine says Russia has weaponized this plant by effectively using its territory as a military base, Russian forces at the plant are now repeatedly shelling nearby cities controlled by Ukraine. Now you went to one of the towns that's getting hit, right? What are people saying there? Yeah, this weekend I was in the city of nickel, which is across the river from the Zappos nuclear power station, the plan to roughly like 12, 13 miles away. And you can see it's buildings from Nicole. A city council official Natalia horrible, as she told me that residents do not have a problem with having the plant as a neighbor. And that for years for decades, they admired the Ukrainians who used to run it. The blood used to be run by professionals. People we knew. Now outsiders have taken it over and we don't know what they are doing. And what it will lead to. What it has led to is Russian rockets hitting homes and Nicole nearly every day. And people aren't just freaking out about that. They're worried that a stray rocket could hit a reactor at the plants, spark a fire and release radiation. I spoke to a grandmother named tamada, and she says she has nightmares about this. All of us are just scared all the time. I'm out. I have diabetes. If anything happens, I'll have time to lie on the floor and close my eyes. Oh, that's gut wrenching to hear her talk about that fear. And of course, the fears of a nuclear disaster don't stop in Ukraine, the international community is worried about this as well, right? Yeah, so Nicole residents are dealing with those fears, either by leaving the city or by stocking up on potassium iodide pills to protect themselves from radiation. They still remember the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 when Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union and so does the rest of the world. The rest of the world remembers out catastrophe, and they do not want it repeated, at least 40 countries have called on Russia to immediately withdraw its forces from the plant and the U.S. and the European Union want to create a demilitarized zone there.

says Russia has now destroyed two of those and was aiming at the third Why is this city so important to the larger war Well it's the last major city in the Luhansk region that's at least still partially in Ukrainian control But I think more importantly is what the fight there in the broader don't boss region says about the larger state of the war Ukraine is now losing ground They're short on ammunition they're short on weapons They still don't have the number of anti air systems they've been asking for for months Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky drove that point about anti air systems home in his nightly briefing last night Did we get them no Do we need them yes he said there have already been 2606 of affirmative answers to this question He said in the form of various Russian cruise missiles that have hit Ukrainian cities And I should say that includes a missile strike over the weekend in western Ukraine that injured almost two dozen civilians Now the U.S. and Western Allies have provided Ukraine with arms What else do they need And actually maybe what is what do they need that's maybe not reaching them Well I mean obviously they'd like to get the anti air systems It's zelensky was just talking about And yeah I mean they have received heavy artillery anti tank weapons and certainly a lot of that has made it to the front line But the bigger issue we're hearing about is ammunition shortages Ukraine is becoming more and more dependent on western arms because they've gone through most of their Soviet era munitions That's something that's certainly going to come up later this week in Brussels when NATO defense ministers meet on Wednesday Because there is an immediate need At the beginning of this war Ukraine was very coy and revealing their losses on the battlefield Just a couple of weeks ago zelensky said they were losing 50 to a hundred soldiers a day Now they are saying it is double that And that does not include the wounded So there's a bigger question of whether both sides can continue to sustain those types of losses in the long term And are the Ukrainians worried that as this work runs on especially in the east at foreign interests and backing my Wayne Yeah I mean absolutely It's no secret here in Ukraine that the U.S. for example has other issues It's dealing with gun policy inflation election season That's why a lot of the reporting that I've been trying to do over the last couple of weeks here has been focused on Ukraine's economy This has already become a war of attrition and for Ukraine to keep its

has been changed forever by this fire And this is partly because of forests that are dry because of drought and hot arid weather due to climate change but there's also a huge amount of anger hit with the forest service because this fire started as two planned burns which got out of control So what did President Biden on this visit What did he see What did.

"I really I understand that now we must win this war Stories of Russian military conduct around civilians have built up a vast store of anger among the Ukrainian population Many of whom reject the idea of formal negotiations Before the war Vasily bourgeois owned a factory that built garden swing sets Since the invasion he and volunteers in the city of zapor region have turned that factory into a place where they manufacture body armor for soldiers on the front lines I think it's impossible to find a peaceful solution And I think that hate and envy between the two countries and their people will go on more than 50 years not less The broad impression that I've received in conversations all over the country is that the only exchange that Ukrainians want to have with the Russian government is through artillery shells and rifle rounds Boris vela tov is the mayor of nipro a city in eastern Ukraine which is a hub for humanitarian and military convoys to the front lines A popular politician he's known for being outspoken brash and blunt But even he has to balance the popular distaste for negotiations with a reality The war is generally only end through talks of some kind I would say it this way Russians always lie They lie to the whole world lie to the west lie to their own people and lie to themselves But that's why we don't believe them at all That's why we do not believe in those talks Although talks have to take place Any war ends with peace and talks This is the difficult path that president zelensky must navigate With so much of the public dead set against formal peace discussions with the Russian government it's hard to see how the democratic government of Ukraine can pursue it Which suggests that the prospects for peace are low.

"They had no electricity They said they were getting water from a stream It says Mario bowl no longer exists There is no place to go back All the houses are destroyed Finally they managed to get out in a convoy earlier this week and it took them three days to get here Last night they slept on the floor of a restaurant They have no idea what they're doing next where they're going to go And Ruben off says they're worried that nowhere in Ukraine is now safe They are afraid that everything that is happening on the eastern part of Ukraine is soon going to be here the same in nipro And as I'm talking to them and they're recounting Mario pole they're both of them were starting to cry And then Ruben off says something about nipro being their honeymoon and at first I think he's joking but then he tells me no they got married on February 22nd two days before the Russian invasion And then they spent a month hiding from the shelling in mariupol And now they're here out in the sunshine sitting by the river and they laugh and say no this is our honeymoon right now That's NPR's Jason Bobby and a nipro Ukraine Jason thank you for your work You're welcome Daniel The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States as a whole has been on the decline in recent weeks And in many places mask mandates and other restrictions are being dropped But at the same time a new COVID variant has been spreading across the country BA two is a sub variant of omicron the variant behind the biggest spike yet of the pandemic just a couple of months ago So how should we be thinking about COVID as we enter yet another new phase in the pandemic To help us answer that we called Bill Hannity He's an epidemiologist and a professor at Harvard's TH Chan school of public health Doctor hannon's welcome Thanks for having me on the show Of course So first of all let's start with some basics Tell us more about this BA two variant How does it differ from the original omicron variant And is it more contagious Does it cause more severe illness Well the first thing to remember is the BA two is a different sub variant of BA one which is the original immigrant They're both army cron it's just their different flavors of it But BA two is actually quite divergent from the virus that was causing a lot of disease here a couple months ago It's very different indeed We don't really understand where these two came from My own bet is on a long-term infection in an immunocompromised host But because BA two is really quite different We have to be watching it very closely because we're still learning about its epidemiological properties And among those properties it does appear to be more transmissible even more transmissible than the omicron that we've seen to date I want to bring this down to the individual level because there are a lot of people listening who have had their two vaccination shots plus a booster but they got that last shot at this point several months ago So should those people be more worried as we have this new variant moving among us and as there's the potential for booster effectiveness to wane The booster effectiveness certainly does seem to weigh in against infection It seems to be pretty well preserved against severe illness Now I want to put a small caveat on that which is that because things are changing very very quickly we might be waiting a couple of weeks to actually get really secure data on this But right now it doesn't look like BA two is much more serious in terms of the disease it causes than BA one But the best thing that you can do as an individual and in particular for your over 65 years of age is to make sure that you're fully up to date with your shots that you've been boosted That's the very best thing that you can do in the face of a virus like this One more thing I want to ask about boosters what do you think about the reports that the Biden administration might be considering approving additional boosters for people over 50 or just for the population in general I think that a fourth booster is probably on the cards and probably on the cards for people who really need it to are going to be the older folks Even beyond BA two we can expect that there's going to be more virus in the fall and the winter And because those people might have a immunity that has waned a little bit we might want to give it a bit of a bit of a Philip in order to help it get through another difficult period with the virus For people as a whole in general I think that three shots is probably about as much protection as you're likely to get But as I say check back with me in a few months And sort of along those same lines people who are more vulnerable or immunocompromised people does BA two make you think that perhaps we should be taking more precautions on their behalf I think that that's certainly true that we shouldn't not forget that there are a lot of people in the United States who have conditions that predispose them to more serious infection if they become infected And if you see a very large surge coming into your community then certainly you should think about your neighbors because even though you might be cool with being infected they might not be And so this is something which should be looking out for your community Well that brings me perfectly to one other thing I wanted to ask you because many states businesses workplaces across the country are relaxing their mask mandates relaxing restrictions that have been in effect for quite a while I'm wondering what is your advice to people listening How should they keep wearing their masks What kind of precautions should they be taking I think it depends on the situation that you're in and depends on how much virus there is on the community at the time I was very little infection then wearing a mask and a lot of circumstances may not be particularly helpful Unless that is of course you are in a particular group who's very concerned about infection and you can have one way masking KF 94s and N95s are very good And people may want to use them because they don't want to get infected And there's a lot of reason people might not want to get them affected They might not want to be having missing their vacation which is coming up just for example So it's roughly the same message as has always been Look at what's going on outside your front door How much viruses are in the community What are the consequences of you or somebody you're in contact with getting sick Are they in a vulnerable group Is it something we can do to wear a mask which is a really easy thing to do seriously Are you really going to the grocery store to feel the fresh air on your face Are you going onto public transport to feel the fresh air in your face I understand that these are things that people can feel people have different attitudes to But then what you can do is make the contacts that you do make the special ones the important ones the things that really matter to you And those things we can get much much of that back even in the face of a virus like this To wrap this all together a final really big question What do you think comes next in this pandemic Right now BA two is becoming the majority of the virus population in the U.S. What that means is that we're going to see a bump in infections How large that bump is going to be well that depends on how much people are trying to stop it It depends on how many people have some immunity already because they were infected with BA one It also depends on in terms of its consequences on how many people are vaccinated and boosted The United States is not very well vaccinated and boosted The UK rode out its earlier omicron wave really quite well We can not say the same for the U.S. between two and three times as many people corrected for population lost their lives You really should be boosted That was Bill hannig associate Professor of epidemiology at Harvard's TH Chan school of public health Doctor hanage thank you so much for speaking with us today Thanks for having me Many Americans change the way they dress for work over the past couple of years And it was easy right Just look respectable on Zoom and wear what's most comfortable otherwise But will it last into this next phase of the pandemic as more.
