"About a year and a half since president Joe Biden signed the American rescue plan into law, and the results have been mixed so far. Many now see it as a double edged sword, David Lynch has taken a closer look for The Washington Post and spoke with northwestern's radio's Taylor van zeiss. The two edges of the sword we're talking about here, a fast recovery from pandemic losses and a contributing factor to the significant inflation we're seeing. David, how quickly did prices start to surge after the American rescue plan was signed? Well, prices started going up pretty quickly. And it's just hard to know maybe impossible to nail down definitively whether that was a direct cause or something of a coincidence. But it's clear that the $1.9 trillion rescue plan contributed to inflation. Economists disagree about how much. And we tried to walk through the various estimates in this story and balance it out against the obvious gains in the labor market that have occurred over the same time. We wanted to show people both the good that came out of it and the bad. And this is a really extensive piece that you put together that folks should take the time to read this week. But when we think about how much inflation has happened, what amount of that might have been inevitable because of the pandemic. Yes, it's important as you sort of pick through this to understand that there was a lot going on and always is a lot going on at a $25 trillion economy. So it's easy to sort of point to one thing and say, this is the cause of everything, but at the same time that we were spending all that money with the rescue plan, we had the fed keeping interest rates very low of rock bottom rates and out in the market buying up bonds and other assets to keep rates down on the long end. So you had a lot happening, then you've got the war in Ukraine that nobody saw a common really earlier this year. That disrupts global markets for food and fuel since prices for those skyrocketing the pandemic is still out there. It's sort of one thing after another. And looking at all of those factors, it's clear that inflation is a global problem. The UK has prices going up about 10% annually. The Eurozone, about 9% Canada is about 7%. So this is a global problem. The rescue plan, according to The Economist, we consulted in the studies we read, made inflation worse and whether that was one percentage point or up to four percentage points depends on which study you believe. And from The White House posture, they have this sort of stance as if, okay, well, the American rescue plan is still ongoing. It's still being used to some extent. What was their reaction to some of the criticism you heard from the economists? Well, you can probably imagine what their reaction was. They disagree with these studies. And I think the important context from the administration's position is that many of these policy makers lived through the global financial crisis in 2008 and lived through the very painfully slow and weak recovery that followed it. It took us something like 6 years to get back to the level of jobs that we had going into that crisis in 2008. That's a long time. And it's not just a numbers game. Those are individual people, individual families that are scarred by the experience of going without work and going without educational opportunities, not being able to do things for their kids, et cetera The Washington Post David Lynch speaking with northwest news radio is Taylor van seiss.

"35. Well, you know, snap crackle pop and of course Larry Moe and curly but have you met? Flippy sippy and chippy. There are new trio of fast food robots. Laura Riley has taken a closer look for The Washington Post and spoke with northwest news radios Taylor van size. Laura, where in the world did you find flippy sippy and chippy and what are they capable of? Well, I got to meet flippy up close. We went to me and a videographer from the paper. Went to Pasadena to miso robotics and watched them design robots. And then we watched one being installed at a Jack in the box in San Diego. And we got to see the kind of interesting interface between human worker and robotic workers in the fast food context, which I think we're all going to be seeing a lot more of pretty soon. Now, when we think of this robot, I mean, is it like Rosie from the jetsons or maybe not quite that advanced? Not quite that advanced, but it is very clearly. I kind of was saying, well, what's the difference between a machine and a robot? Well, a robot can correct in real time can learn over time to do things more efficiently and effectively. So this is basically a robotic arm with a whole bunch of cameras that does all of the deep frying for a Jack in the box. And I didn't realize this, but about 60% of all the foods produced add Jack in the box go through the deep fryer. So that's where things log jam up at the drive-through. So it was a serious solution to a lot of their woes. And thus far, they've just done it in one of these locations, but the aim is to roll it out more broadly in the next year or so. And as you note in your piece, it's that fry station where most of the injuries happen to the human employees, which brings up the question of cash, obviously, for flippy or sippy or chippy. How do they compare to hiring Larry Moe and curly? Well, you know, you don't ever have a robot call in sick or use the health insurance for the company. Once you've trained them, they're pretty much trained. I think there's a lot of turnover. And as we've seen just in the past year or two, during the pandemic, most fast food restaurants have been woefully understaffed. You know, there are a lot of restaurants that to this day can't stay open all of the hours that it wants to because of staffing issues. So this has been the whole restaurant industry has really seen a labor shortage for at least 18 months. And robotics are increasingly a solution that chain restaurants are turning to. If a franchisee really wants to drop some money on a robot to demand the fry station, how much is that going to cost? Well, so this particular one, it was about $5000 for the installation and about 3500 bucks a month rental. So is that about the same as a single employee probably, but this robot doesn't mind working the graveyard shift and can work 24 hours in a row and not demand any over time. So there's a lot of indication that long-term, some of those kinds of hot miserable jobs may be taken over by robots. You know, it's those hot miserable jobs that made me into the broadcaster I am today. I mean, so many of us spent time behind a fry top or scooping ice cream or something like that. It'll be interesting to see what this does to first jobs and early resumes for young workers. Laura Reilly with us on northwest news radio. Reported for The Washington Post, you can find that video and the written up coverage online at Washington Post dot com. Laura, thank you. That's northwest news radio's Taylor van seiss. I just have a little trouble thinking that somebody named flippy is going to be delivering my hamburger to me. Well, they'll flip it on the grill. I don't know, maybe chippy is the one who will deliver it. As long as it's not sippy, I think I'm all right.

"Two vision RLE. Everything I'm Rick fancied, along with Kim shepherd, our editor is Bill O'Neill and here's what's happening. President Biden making a stop in Delaware tonight. After a speech in D.C. earlier in the day, he and First Lady Jill Biden made an unexpected trip to Wilmington to vote in the state's primary election. Decades ago, the U.S. government detained thousands of Japanese Americans at the fairgrounds in puyallup now that site is preparing to host a commemorative exhibits. In Russia, is Russia on the ropes in Ukraine, according to western intelligence officials that answer depends on what Vladimir Putin does next. Shane Harris is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with northwest news radio's Taylor van seiss. Shane, how much land has Ukraine retaken in recent weeks? Well, the estimates are about 2000 to 2300 in square miles and this is a counter offensive they've been launching in the northeast of the country. It had been signaling that they were actually going to go in the south and eventually going to switch gears and maybe in a bit of a faint in the northeast and really routed these Russian forces and they've seen these dramatic videos on social media, Russian troops fleeing, dropping their weapons and Ukrainian celebrating it that are liberated from the Russians. So it really tremendous and very quick. Very rapid strike Ukrainian launch here. Military history was always one of my favorite courses in college. And when you look at the Russian Empire days, all the way back, there's a long history of Russian leaders dumping resources into a lost cause. So with that in mind, what options is Vladimir Putin Wang right now? The big option he has right now is one he has resisted for some time, which is a mobilization of forces, which is to say, you know, calling up or even conscripting more the soldiers from within Russia calling reserves possibly drafting more. Because reasons for that largely we think for political reasons he does not want to give the impression to the population that the lord is going poorly. He's, of course, are people who also have a sense of history and you just articulate and they don't want to see him pouring these pouring Russian lines into the lost cause either. He has he has failed to improve supply chain logistics of signing and get a visible really consumers again in February. So officials we've talked to think at the mobilization of forces really is kind of the thing he would have to do if people were going to churn dramatically turn around what has been so far quite disastrous military campaign. So judging by the resources that are still there in Ukraine for Russia, is Ukraine now able to consolidate and protect the ground that they've retaken. It appears that they are doing that so far. There's been no indication that the Russians are remounting a counter to the counter offensive in the northeast. It's early days yet. And there is still intense spreading in the south of the country. Where the Ukrainians have not yet mounted to kind of spectacular attacks and have those we've seen in the northeast. So I think the way that it's been described to me in talking to officials in the past day or so is this is potentially a turning point in a really significant one in the war in Ukraine's favor, but this may not be the beginning of the end. What we might be seeing here is an important shift in the momentum, but I don't hear anyone. And frankly, including on the Ukrainian side saying that this is now a forgone conclusion that Ukraine will be able to kick Russia entirely out of the areas that it took in the February, although that is clearly what their goal is at this point. And there's also the potential for them to try and mount an offensive to get back the Crimean Peninsula to, you can read much more about this online at Washington Post dot com, the latest report from Shane Harris. Shane, thank you. Taylor van seiss. An Italian court explains why it dropped a rape case against American Canadian screenwriter and director Paul haggis, ABC's Megan Williams is in Rome with the details. A court in the southern Italian city of leche says the story of a 29 year old British woman who accused Paul haggis of sexual assault in June had incongruities and contradictions. The court rejected the prosecutor's petition to keep haggis under house arrest after several weeks this summer. It said it couldn't be ruled out that the woman had speculative intentions. The Italian case against haggis has now been dropped, but haggis is facing court proceedings in October in New York, where he's being sued by a film publicist, who says he raped her in January 2013.

"The debt relief announcement from The White House yesterday. Danielle Douglas Gabriel is covering the story and the education beat for The Washington Post and put together a series of articles on who qualifies for relief as well as other ways to get your student loans forgiven. And she talked more about it with Taylor van seiss. What kind of requirements Danielle does a person need to meet in order to take advantage of the debt relief? Well, you have to, as an individual, earn less than a $125,000 a year and that's based on your adjusted gross income and as a family, less than $250,000 a year for the 10,000. Now, if you also were a pell grant recipient, this is a grant. Primarily for low income college students in their undergraduate years, mainly those from families earning less than 60,000, half of them earn less than 30,000. Well, those recipients will actually get an additional $10,000 for a total of $20,000 in debt cancellation. Now as far as what kind of work that a debtor has to put in to take advantage of this, is this an extensive process to try and qualify? The Department of Education is saying that it's not. So the department has the income information for about 8 million borrowers and those 8 million borrowers will receive automatic loan forgiveness. The rest of folks who are eligible for loan forgiveness will have to submit what I'm being told is a very short attestation form to certifying their income and that is how they will be able to get loan forgiveness. That form is not out yet, but should be out within the next month or so. Looking at the calendar Danielle, it's about the

"Someone who can help. Lenny Bernstein is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van zeiss. Lenny, this has been in the works for a long time now, what happens on Saturday if a person in or adjacent to crisis calls or even texts 9 8 8. Right. The FCC mandated this two years ago and it's taken a lot of preparation and they're finally ready to bring it out on Saturday. Basically the only thing that really changes for the user is instead of dialing 802 7 three talk, you're going to have a simple 9 8 8. That's what you would do if you were in a mental health crisis. Someone you know was in the mental health crisis, it's just a lot simpler and a lot easier. Imagine if you needed an ambulance or a police officer. And you had to dial a ten digit number instead of 9-1-1. It's the same idea. They want you just to have that easy access. And how busy has the national suicide prevention lifeline been in recent years. And what is the expected impact of the 9 8 8 switchover? So it has been busy. There are some places that can not handle the demand. And there are 14 backup centers around the country that those calls roll over to. There was a good story in The Wall Street Journal that calculated that one out of 6 people hang up without ever even reaching anybody. So I believe it's been 3.6 million in the last year. They are expecting that to more than double. Is there funding to ensure long-term success of the 9 8 8 program? There is funding. I'm not sure we should say yet that it's going to ensure the long-term success. The federal government through SAMHSA has put about 280 million in Congress allocated another 150 million, but what everybody says is that we need so much more spending in the field of mental health. We need mobile crisis teams. We need places where you can take people who are having a crisis that isn't a jail or an emergency room that there is going to need to be a lot more spending in this area in general. And then as I mentioned, there are those places that yet can't keep up with the demand and those states are going to have to pony up money to get those crisis centers up to where they need to be. And that leads into my final question as far as a consistent standard of care across the country because if a caller dials into 9 8 8 or gives a text, say, from the Seattle area, are they going to be able to access the same resources as someone in Chicago or Dallas or New York? At the moment, I would say the answer is no. If you call in in one of the places like Tucson, Arizona that is beautifully staffed and the person on the phone can't resolve your crisis, they will send someone to your door. If the person who comes to your door can't resolve your crisis, they will take you to a special mental health center. That does not exist in a lot of places around this country. The person on the phone, very often can resolve the crisis, particularly if it's suicide, there's a threat and they need to separate you from something that will do you harm or you need to separate talk you through a crisis. That happens most of the time. If you need follow-up care, that's where it gets to be very different depending on where you live. You can read much more online at Washington Post dot com. Remember the old number for the national suicide prevention lifeline that still operating today 802 7 three 8 two 5 5. It's going to remain active indefinitely 9 8 8 launches Saturday.

In less than two months, four people have drowned in Chilean county, and many others have been rescued from lakes and rivers where the water is cold and running fast.

Rich Magnus said, with shalan county emergency management, says this week's drowning of a 46 year old Tacoma woman in leavenworth is the fourth already since the end of May. Right now we're experiencing real hot temperatures over here and so a lot of people are recreating on or near the water.

"35 Identity theft and unemployment fraud combined to rob the U.S. of up to a $163 billion in the rush to claim unemployment benefits Your body is covering this for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van seiss It's been two years since all of these trillions of dollars in federal aid were made available How far are we from understanding the scope of the theft and fraud tied to that You know I think we're still several years away from understanding all that It was really a historic amount of funds that went out from the government in order to respond to really an emergency situation But kind of now that some of that is slowing down and there's a chance that sort of catch our breath and observe what actually happened and where this money went I think we're just starting to understand the scope of how much of those funds really went to people or places that they weren't supposed to go to Is it even clear how much might be fraud versus just bad math and overpayment Even that is still unclear and investigators are trying to figure that out and then of course try to get some of that money back But for instance that a $163 billion figure that you cited is sort of what is called overpayment So that could include people who legitimately were getting funds that they needed but then got too much And then as well including as well in that is funds that should never have gone out to those recipients people who were actually defrauding the government In your story you include an infographic that shows just how little money has been reclaimed from that $163 billion number What is that number Why is it so small Right That number is $4 billion out of that a 163 billion And it's small because it's just really painstaking to put these cases together And then to actually trace that funding those funds and be able to get them back from those parties A lot of these sort of scams that occurred were undertaken by people overseas Or the funds just kind of disappeared into whether it's cryptocurrency or other sorts of accounts and it just becomes quite a daunting enterprise for local investigators for saving investigators and of course for the federal government as well to understand sort of where all this money went and how they can get it back now Most folks listening to this are reading a story online at Washington Post dot com won't want to defraud the government at any point in their life But how openly are crooks sharing strategies to commit these crimes It's a really interesting question We found to our surprise that it was quite open There are different social networks including one called telegram That is maybe not super popular in the United States but it's very popular abroad And on this particular social network there were groups dedicated to this kind of fraud and kind of sharing tips and tricks and saying oh this state's program we could defraud it this way and kind of sharing their formulas with each other So it was actually quite open Especially in those first few months of the pandemic Also says quite a lot about how many of us have had our personal information and social security numbers compromised as well You can read about all of this online at Washington Post dot com from Jake and a tour body who's with us today on northwest news radio You're going to thank you And that's Taylor van seiss Well there is relief insight for parents searching for baby formula but it'll still be a wait as we hear from ABC News correspondent Andy field in Washington The FDA says Abbott nutrition's infant formula plan should be back to full production in a few weeks In the meantime they're making it easier to import from other nations Our new God streamlined the ability for companies including most of not normally selling from formula in this country to make products available to the U.S. market FDA commissioner Robert califf not saying exactly how.

"Connected stay informed This is northwest news radio 1000 FM 97 7 Inflation is still extremely high up by 8.3% compared to a year ago but new data out from the bureau of labor statistics appears to show a sign of hope The Washington Post Heather long takes a closer look with Taylor van seiss Heather where's the silver lining in this 8.3% number and was it expected to just be higher Well the slightly encouraging news is it was 8.5% in March and now we're 8.3 So at least we're going a little bit down the other encouraging news in the report is the big reason it fell a little bit is there was a decline in gas prices most of us noticed that in April and finally we saw a little bit of cooling off in those used car prices that have been sky high For the past year or so but the flip side of that is obviously it wasn't a big decline and we continue to see this trend of inflation spilling out into more and more areas of the economy And that's obviously pretty worrying And when we dig into your latest column you go beyond inflation and look at the problem of scarcity Why is that as critical a problem as rising inflation Well I think there's been a lot of debate about why Americans are so gloomy about this economy And obviously people are frustrated when you fill up your tank and when you go to the grocery store we see the highest grocery in Play Store inflation in since 1981 But I think part of the problem is this I call it we're living in an age of scarcity It's not just that the prices are high It's that even if you are willing to pay a high price it can still be really difficult and really hard to get your hands on something whether you're waiting for a car part whether you're waiting for some cabinets to arrive for a kitchen remodel Obviously lately a lot of people have been struggling to find that baby formula that's so critical Same thing with housing You go to an open house in the last few months and I just did in a few months ago and you're suddenly one of a hundred people at an open house and it just has this like Squid Game feel of you know even if you've done all the right things trying to save your money during the pandemic trying to get a higher paying job You still don't feel like you're getting ahead because you may not be able to get what you want And you caught a psychology professor from the university of Denver in this column What happens when consumer sentiment goes down scarcity is high inflation is as high as it's been what does that do to our psyche as consumers Yeah obviously people are upset You can see it in any sort of polling data or just talking to people casually across the political spectrum But I think the other factor we have to remember is we've obviously all lived through the past two years or so And that's basically been a period of chronic stress for some people it's been traumatic stress And chronic stress is sort of like living through depression for the past two years And when you're in this kind of a mental state it tends to make people focus more on negative news So sure the job picture is good There are situations where you can get higher paying jobs right now or negotiate to work from home or these sorts of benefits But at the end of the day people are more focused and are more concerned about where things going with scarcity with inflation and with these ongoing problems around the world And maybe that's why we're almost excited to say that inflation was down to just 8.3% Heather long with us on northwest news radio economics opinion columnist for The Washington Post and you can find all of Heather's work online at Washington Post dot com Thanks for joining us today That's Taylor van seiss Your stock charts dot com money update on northwest news radio Seattle's lab vacancy rate is falling but it's still 3% higher than the national average Largely because of all the new buildings for life sciences companies Analysts say that's actually a nice problem to have Seattle's lab vacancy rate fell slightly to 8.6% in the first quarter according to cushman and Wakefield Georgetown brewing is the only local micro brewer of the 50 largest craft beer companies in the U.S. ranking number 25 according to the brewers association craft beer has an economic impact in more than $2 billion annually in Washington state Craft beer week begins May 16 The Dow lost 326 points to close at 31,834 NASDAQ fell three 73 in the S&P 500 lost 66 This is rob Smith with northwest news radio A famous chef from Seattle has been found not guilty of indecent assault and battery Celebrity chef Mario Batali walking out of court a free man after being accused of forcibly kissing and groping a woman while taking selfies inside a now closed Boston restaurant in 2017 On Monday his accuser Natalie tenay taking the stand testifying about Batali's alleged sexual.

"Stay connected stay informed This is northwest news radio 1000 FM 97 7 This week we may see the 1 millionth American death from COVID-19 According to federal health data nearly 190 million in this country have been infected by COVID-19 at least once Now scientists are hoping to study people who have avoided getting the highly contagious virus for over two years Katie shepherd has taken a closer look for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van zeiss Katie you profile a nurse anesthetist who may fit the bill of somebody with a genetic advantage over the virus Why is Bevin Strickland so unique So bed in situation is really interesting because she volunteered as a nurse in Queens in New York City in April of 2020 when that area of New York City was the epicenter of the pandemic and vaccines hadn't been created yet to prevent COVID infection So she was exposed really consistently over the 6 weeks that she volunteered as a nurse there And she said she was often taking her mask off just to connect with patients who are really frightened at that time when COVID-19 was still a really new disease and we didn't know that much about it and people in the hospital were really really sick And so she was coming in very close contact with people who had the virus and somehow she managed to never contract the virus She was tested every week while she was volunteering Never had a positive result And that's a very uncommon reaction to consistent and pretty severe exposure to the virus And you interviewed Christopher Murray the director of the institute of health metrics and evaluation at UW here in the Seattle area Why does he believe that people like Bevin are so rare So his institute has come up with a model that estimates how many people in the United States have had COVID-19 at some point whether they got tested and knew that they were infected or maybe had a very mild case or an asymptomatic case And they estimate that as many as 76% of U.S. residents had the virus at some point since the start of the pandemic in 2020 And that leads just a very small percentage of people who haven't had the virus And then within that group of people who haven't had the virus sometimes those people haven't had the virus because they've been very very careful in their boarding virus So that probably accounts for a good number of the remaining people who haven't had the virus And that just leaves a very small group of people who possibly have some kind of genetic predisposition that makes them resistant to the virus naturally And so once the genetic versus behavior question is answered what do researchers hope to do with this data when they dig down and find the genetic differences among us Is scientists do find a gene that is helping some people avoid infection that could point researchers in the direction of potential drugs that could help keep other people who otherwise would be susceptible to virus from catching the virus at all or it might help treat people who do get sick and make sure that they don't get very sick with the virus And they're looking for what in the genes of these people might be protecting them is it because they have a gene that makes their cells a little bit different so that the virus can't bind to certain receptors that allow the virus to infect other people who have a different genetic makeup and if they can find the mechanism by which these people are avoiding infection they might be able to develop therapies to help other people Okay you shepherd with us on northwest news radio reporter for The Washington Post and you can find all of Katie's work online at Washington Post dot com Thanks for joining us today That's Taylor van seiss.

"Of serious hepatitis cases in young children the cause unknown Lena San is covering this for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van seiss Lena what does the CDC say in this warning So they're asking physicians and public health officials to be on the lookout for kids who have these symptoms of serious liver injury that hepatitis is inflammation of the liver because there have been 9 cases in children young children one to 6 years old who are hospitalized in Alabama between October of last year and February of this year with significant liver injury Two of the kids had to have liver transplants And all of them were previously healthy And they were admitted to the hospital but not because they had COVID They didn't have a coronavirus infection And what's worrying about this is because they've ruled out all the things that normally cause viral hepatitis And there are dozens of similar cases in Europe With England having that by last count 79 cases Which is extremely unusual for an age group that is normally extremely healthy in a one to 6 years older thereabouts but I wonder are these kids fully vaccinated against hepatitis because I've got a two year old now and she needs to get a couple more shots every appointment it seems Well we don't know but what they've ruled out that the things that normally cause hepatitis are not those are not the culprits So it's viruses hepatitis a B C D and E those are all have been ruled out What they are investigating is a possible association between this hepatitis and adenovirus which is a family of viruses that cause a range of infections most commonly respiratory illnesses the common cold And in the Alabama cases I think 5 of the children tested positive for a specific type of adenovirus You know there's like 50 different kinds of adenovirus It's a family of viruses And they tested positive for adenovirus 41 Adenovirus 41 can typically causes more problems with like inflammation of the stomach like gastroenteritis And in the European cases adenovirus has been confirmed in some of those cases Those are also all previously healthy children And after that news report ran another state North Carolina reported that it had two cases Those kids have recovered but they are investigating those cases and also looking for more So the point of this CDC health alert is to let doctors know hey this is going on out there Look for these symptoms And if you have a situation where you have a kid who has hepatitis but you have ruled out all the normal causes then think about testing them for adenovirus.

"Northwest news time now 6 35 Russia's model for espionage is under attack especially after the atrocities in the Ukrainian city of bucha were discovered Hundreds of Russians have been expelled from nearly two dozen European embassies since the start of the war Shane Harris is following this for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van zeiss According to western intelligence Shane how many of these so called diplomats were actually more likely Russian spies It's hard to get an exact number but you could probably I would think safely estimate that well over a hundred of these 400 have been kicked out or working functionally as intelligence operatives and that others might be sending information home more informally But this is a pretty well honed practice to have intelligence officers nominally serving as diplomats when actually they work for the intelligence services So kicking them out means that you've kicked out your intelligence gatherers or Russia's outlooks gatherers and many of these countries And this is a pretty critical time for diplomacy Even in the digital world though how important are these old school cloak and dagger operations for Russia to be operated out of diplomatic posts They're quite important This is what falls into the category where we would call human intelligence So this is people gathering information recruiting assets or agents sort of reporting what they see on the ground Things that it's much harder perhaps to get from a technical system from a satellite or even from surveillance So this is really kind of crucial to how Russia goes about conducting its intelligence operations in the west And importantly some of these people who can be on the ground can be useful for more provocative actions as well Things like spreading disinformation propaganda It's not merely about reporting things back to Russia It's also about being Russia's operative on the ground in these countries It's important though to have information going both ways even behind the scenes in a war like this How empty are some of these Russian embassies in major European cities Yeah nearly empty In some cases and that really presents a challenge for countries that might want to have some kind of interlocutor or channel back to Russia Of course the negotiations over the war in Ukraine are producing anything in the way the settlement yet But it is important to keep those channels open So this is one of the downsides of kicking out these diplomats You do cut off some intelligence gathering but at the same time you foreclose some of those channels of communication But in this case these countries in Europe have kicked out these Russian officials seem to have wagered that it's worth the loss in order to punish Russia and to shut down their operations Is this likely to be a long-term action or are we going to see like with other scuffles in the past don't look nearly as bad as the Ukrainian war for example we would see them kicked out for a month or a year and then invited back Well you could see that if there's a settlement I think some countries have already said that they have no they're going to have to take steps to make sure that they don't just backfill these positions I think this now depends on what happens with the negotiations You can ask the same question about what the sanctions ever be lifted If the war gets to is over and Russia gets to a point where it is sort of slowly allowed back into diplomatic circles or the community of nations seems a long way off Then you might seem to have to see some of these positions be refilled But for now I think they're effectively shut down Shane Harris with us on northwest news radio reporter for The Washington Post and you can find all of Shane's coverage

"Downtown Seattle the northwest news time now 6 35 Negotiators from Ukraine and Russia met in Istanbul turkey today covering the peace talks for The Washington Post as Dan lamotta spoke with Taylor van seiss Dan any breakthroughs to report today or at least demonstrations of goodwill I think we're short of a true breakthrough but there's at least some cause for optimism that perhaps there might be some off ramps here Among other things it appears that Russians are sort of holding back on any additional attack north of Kyiv where they've obviously been stalled for some days And then there's also discussion of there being some sort of security architecture that would offer protection to Ukraine but would fall short of them joining NATO which has been a significant Russian concern in the stumbling block here The alliance the United States other members of it have all wanted to leave that door open to Ukraine and kind of leave them the choice of what they think is best As I understand it it's kind of Ukraine saying okay well let us join the European Union at least in maybe we'll stay away from NATO At least in terms of being a formal member yes with some other assurances that there would still be security assistance and I guess western help for Ukraine even though they would not fall Up to this point the peace talks have been a disaster or at least unsuccessful There's even been reporting that Ukrainian negotiators and a Russian oligarch may have been poisoned at a previous meeting How is the U.S. State Department reacting to today's efforts I think there's still kind of a wait and see kind of attitude at this point There's enough bad will in enough bad things that have happened that I think folks are waiting to see whether or not Russia is truly serious here whether or not they're going to follow through on some of these promises they appear to be making And really the time will tell there What about The Pentagon Are they seeing evidence that maybe the war is changing dynamics or that Russia is going to keep to their promise of laying off of Kyiv We have just some incremental assessments there from the top general pod Walters who's based in Europe He was on Capitol Hill this morning testifying for a previously scheduled hearing and he did he did indicate that he had at least seen signs of changing dynamics north of Kyiv in particular and that there may be a shift there that would indicate that Russia is at least somewhat serious with that piece of the puzzle Though the talks continue there's still fighting obviously people still evacuating especially around mariupol where the mayor of Mario has essentially said everybody needs to get out now What happens next Are there new rounds of talks scheduled I think we're looking to see where this might go next And I think even as the things appear to be a bit more optimistic in and surrounding keys Mary opal is a different scenario that the situation there is much more dire thousands of people have believed are believed to have been killed there in recent fighting And that would appear to be more in line with Russia desiring to connect Crimea to the rest to the rest of what they see as Russia Capturing that city and the surrounding area would allow them to connect that Peninsula that they seized back in 2014 to maintenance Russia Dan Le Mans with us on northwest news radio

more options on the table to economically pressure Russia out of Ukraine Alex perche is covering the story for ABC News and talked with Taylor van seiss Alex what else could The White House do to the ruble and Russian oligarchs Well Taylor The White House is looking to squeeze these oligarchs and with that freezing some of their assets So essentially the U.S. announced new sanctions against members of the Russian elite today including Russian president Vladimir Putin's spokesman Saying that it would block 19 of these oligarchs and 47 of their relatives and close associates from traveling to the U.S. and we know this is already in concert with some sanctions that are already in place by the U.S. and some of its allies Germany seized one of Russia's wealthiest oligarchs a super yacht and a private jet which was said to be one of the largest privately owned aircraft in all of Russia The idea here is that by going after these wealthy elites that it'll put pressure on Vladimir Putin because they are people of influence or people that he listens to that he's surrounded himself with The other part of this is that U.S. intelligence has pointed to the fact that Putin himself has his own assets with these oligarchs And so by going after the oligarchs you actually might actually be targeting some of Putin's wealth himself And there's bipartisan support for sending more aid to Ukraine as well but do we know what kind how much and how lawmakers are pushing for this So the Biden administration is now seeking to get a 32 and a half billion in additional emergency funding from Congress And essentially there are two different efforts here with this request Ukraine and then also booster bolster the U.S. COVID response So they're looking for $10 billion in new humanitarian security and economic aid for Ukraine and its Central European partners But it's also looking for 22 and a half billion to go towards supplying a supply of COVID COVID antiviral treatments funding testing in vaccination and also working to develop a vaccine To protect against future variants Now this is going to be interesting whether or not it goes forward as it's hammered out into legislation As it goes forward as a package deal or if there are separated because if you remember watching the president's State of the Union he got a rounding sending ovation for almost anything involving Ukraine But certainly on COVID we know that things have been a little bit more partisan Alex crochet with us on northwest news radio reported for ABC News Alex thank you And that's Taylor van thanks

"Northwest news time to 6 35 Some economic sanctions against Russia are easy to carry out Airspace can be closed quickly digital access to banking can be stopped with a few mouse clicks but property and asset seizure the measures that could really impact the most powerful Russian oligarchs is more complicated Rosalind helderman is covering this for The Washington Post and spoke with Taylor van seiss Strategies like setting up a shell company or an LLC they can help obscure true ownership of a property or a business is the U.S. doing anything to reveal the true owners of these mansions or yachts that were previously well known to be owned by powerful Russians So there was a law passed in 2020 that changes the rules for hate and ownership of property in the U.S. but that law is still being implemented So before it went into effect you could really buy property in the United States behind hidden LLCs And it's really hard to track down who owns what through these anonymous companies and what person is the ultimate beneficiary of those LLCs President Biden and the State of the Union last night indicated that there is going to be a renewed effort to track down those money flows around the world but we'll have to see how that works out because it's not easy It takes time and it takes real intention And because of these shell companies is there really any way for an economist to know how much Russian wealth is stored in the United States There's really not I was talking to some experts about this who said that they believed that because of previous rounds of sanctions in the U.S. the inner circle the top oligarchs close to Putin have been largely avoiding the United States for the last several years But they also said honestly they didn't quite know because of these shell companies because of how you can move money around anonymously We had a story this morning where we looked at one Russian oligarch who has been under U.S. sanctions for nearly four years now He owns or he is connected to several large mansions including a giant $15 million mansion in the heart of Washington D.C. that House is officially owned by an LLC and a spokeswoman for ham has said he doesn't own the LLC It's in the names of relatives So can they go after that house I don't know I guess we'll see They haven't done so in the nearly four years that he's been sanctioned Companies like Boeing Exxon BP Apple Adidas you name a big international company They're likely trying to pull out of Russia in some way or another If these companies are racing to divest or change their names or drop their clients economically what could this cost the United States Yeah I think we don't really know yet We do know that this is going to be economically devastating for the Russian economy and for the Russian people experts told us that the American economy is large but not large enough to absorb this without some ripple effect I think one told us that the Russian economy is going to take a total beating But the American economy is going to take one too Rosalind helderman with us on northwest news radio reported for The Washington Post You can find this story in all of Rosalind's work online at Washington Post dot com Thanks for joining us today And that's Taylor van seiss Ukraine's president saying tonight more than 9000 Russian soldiers have been killed since the start of the invasion So far the Russians have taken aim at some strategic sites but that has come at quite a cost to civilians hundreds of whom have been injured or killed and it seems to the United States certainly to the Ukrainians and others that the civilians are being now targeted by the Russians even though they say they are not targeting civilians And it is frightened people It has sent ordinary
