you are spending more on gas. so it eats up from my wallet. >> reporter: air travelers are also feeling squeezed. jet fuel costs, up more than 50% since the invasion, prompting alaska and allegiant to cut flights. and, airfares are higher everywhere. >> prices this week are already up 20%, and they're going to grow higher, at least in the next foreseeable future. air res have nowhere to go but up. >> reporter: it is frustrating for lizette rivero, a registered nurse in pennsylvania. >> it's really hard. >> reporter: her original plan to take her grandson to see family in the dominican republic, might now be on hold since ticket prices have doubled in recent weeks.be nsithese pr willyto creep up, aaa advises that ifde. that, they say, can decrease gas mileage by up to 10%. and if you plan to fly at all
3:19 am
this summer, the best advice on that front, jericka, is to purchase as soon as possible. >> all right. any way to save. thank you, errol. it's not just fuel costs hitting records. prices are up across the board. and inflation is getting most of the blame for the sticker shock, but a cbs news investigation found that corporate greed is also a major factor. cbs' manuel bojorquez explains. >> hi, baby! >> reporter: for selina flores and her family, it's no longer about stretching the budget. it's about what gets cut. >> it was meat at every meal, and now it's maybe two or three days out of the week. >> reporter: the monthly grocery bill for this family of four has nearly doubled, she says. they now rely on a monthly food donation from this nonprofit in immokalee, florida to make ends meet. >> we're just trying to keep up with everything and the prices keep going up. >> reporter: the biggest food price hikes are in meats, with pork and beef up 14% to 20% from a year ago. food companies and some economists say pandemic
3:20 am
disruptions, inflation, and high demand are to blame. but others question whether there's more at play. ricardo salvador is with the union of concerned scientists, a nonprofit advocacy group. >> you're seeing just orders of magnitude greater profit. they're not justified by the actual rate of inflation or their increased costs. >> reporter: we pulled the quarterly reports on tyson, the nation's largest meat processor. the company posted $3 billion in profit in 2021, and over $1 billion just last quarter. that means profits were up a staggering 48%, even as inflation is hurting american families. a big reason for those skyrocketing profits? a 31% price hike on beef, 20% on chicken, and 13% on pork. this was the company's ceo on an earnings call last month: >> we're not asking customers or consumers ultimately to pay for our inefficiencies. we're asking them to pay for inflation. >> reporter: in a statement,
3:21 am
tyson told us, "economists and industry analysts confirm that today's higher meat prices are a direct result of constrained supplies due to the labor shortage, higher input costs for such things as grain, labor, and fuel, and tronger consumer demand." the other major u.s. meat suppliers are also posting similar profits. some analysts, like salvador, believe the numbers don't add up. >> well, they're clearly taking advantage. you know, they're profiteering. and we're not the only ones to observe that >> reporter: even president biden is weighing in, blasting the meat industry in his state of the union address. >> capitalism without competition is exploitation. it drives up profits. >> reporter: just four companies control up to 85% of the nation's beef, pork, and chicken markets. >> that means they can name whatever price they want, and if you want to buy meat, you're paying that price. >> reporter: so there is nothing to prevent prices from continuing to go up. >> correct. as long as there isn't
3:22 am
competition that will help drive down the prices so that they have a reason to actually be more reasonable. >> reporter: and that's why selina flores is worried about her children's future. >> prices are going up, and they're going to continue to go up. there's no stopping it. i have to make money because how am i going to make ends meet? >> reporter: manuel bojorquez, cbs news, immokalee, florida. there's a lot more news ahead on the cbs "overnight news." the first person to receive a pig heart transplant has died. why his family is still thankful. a remarkable with depression, you just feel...blah. not okay. all...the...symptoms. need to deal with this. so your doctor tells you about trintellix,

3:31 am
have made moderate progress. in the capital of kyiv, thousands of civilians are making their way to safety, while a top ukrainian adviser says cease-fires in many other regions are not holding. and, new fears tonight of a possible radiological disaster at two nuclear facilities that are now under control of russian forces. we have a lot of news to get to tonight, but we're going to start with cbs' charlie d'agata in kyiv. charlie, good evening. >> reporter: good evening to you, jericka. a day that began in the hope of a limited cease-fire, ended in horror. a senior u.s. defense official said tonight, there are indications that the russians are using dumb bombs, unguided weapons, increasing civilian casualties and damage. [ explosions ] a massive airstrike shattered the fragile cease-fire in mariupol late this afternoon. emergency teams and soldiers scrambled to evacuate the wounded, including pregnant
3:32 am
women from the city's maternity hospital. a hospital for those needing care, maybe the only place where they felt some measure of security, but it seems nothing is off limits to the russian onslaught. the blast destroyed the complex inside and out. the shattered nursery. a blood-stained mattress. the size and the depth of the crater and the surrounding debris and destruction evidence of its ferocity. the besieged port city in the south has come under heavy russian bombardment that's cut off electricity and water to more than 400,000 people. city officials say at least 1,200 civilians have been killed since the war began. images show city workers placing bodies into a mass grave. another attack struck a residential area in the city of mykolaiv. [ explosion ] the city of chernihiv in the north has been pummeled, too.
3:33 am
vyacheslav zaporozhets didn't wait for a break in the fighting to rescue these children. he drove to chernihiv and braved an intense aerial bombardment overnight to take nine children and their mothers into the relative safety of his home outside of kyiv. "i feel it is my mission to stop kids from hearing or seeing the war," he told us. "and the russians need to stop." is he a hero? >> yes, one of the rarest here, i think. >> reporter: 18-year-old ilia lived through hell. can you describe what it's like? >> i don't know how to describe when you feel like rockets are exploding-- explosion up on your head. >> reporter: 11-year-old angelina told us she had a good life before the war. "there were no explosions," she said. "we could sleep at night." more than anything, she wants to go back home and see the father she left behind.
3:34 am
adding yet another threat to civilians, the white house today warned that russia might be planning to use chemical or biological weapons to create a false flag operation to then blame on ukraine, jericka. >> charlie, thank you for your reporting tonight in kyiv. the pentagon is rejecting a plan to provide mig fighter jets to ukraine, calling it a high-risk venture. cbs' david martin is at the pentagon with more. >> reporter: as vice president harris became the latest high-ranking official to visit poland, the biden administration threw cold water on a plan to give polish mig-29s to ukraine, saying it risked setting off a wider war with russia. >> the intelligence community has assessed the transfer of mig-29s to ukraine may be mistaken as escalatory, and could result in significant russian reaction that might increase the prospects of a military escalation with nato. >> reporter: poland had offered to transfer its mig-29s to a u.s. air force base in germany, where ukrainian pilots could
3:35 am
pick them up and fly them back to defend their homeland. but, almost all of ukraine is now in range of russian anti-aircraft batteries, limiting the use its air force could make of additional jets. >> the ukrainian air force has currently several squadrons of fully mission capable aircraft. we assess adding aircraft to the ukrainian inventory is not likely to significantly change the effectiveness of the ukrainian air force relative to russian capabilities. >> reporter: the pentagon moved patriot air defensive missile batteries into poland to defend against possible russian airstrikes in retaliation for the thousands of anti-tank missiles and other weapons being shipped through poland into ukraine. according to a senior defense official, several hundred russian vehicles have been destroyed, captured, or simply abandoned. that 40-mile-long russian convoy northwest of kyiv is still stopped in its tracks. but the pentagon estimates that after two weeks of fighting, 90%
3:36 am
of russia's combat power remains intact. in the battle for control of the sky, the pentagon says ukraine needs anti-aircraft missiles more than jet fighters. it is asking countries that use the same kind of missiles to send them to ukraine. jericka? >> david martin, thank you. congress has reached a bipartisan deal to provide $13.6 billion in aid for ukraine as part of an overdue spending package, and it couldn't come soon enough. the humanitarian crisis in ukraine is worsening, but the relief effort is growing. cbs' chris livesay reports. >> reporter: it's a fundamental principle of conflicts: infantry wins battles, but logistics wins wars. here in lviv, ukraine, truckloads of water, food, clothing, toilet paper are packed, sorted, and loaded by an army of volunteers. less than two weeks ago, this building was ukraine's biggest
3:37 am

3:41 am
most americans, 71%, support the ban on russian oil, even if it hits them in the pocketbook. 22% are opposed. the ban also has bipartisan support in congress. weijia jiang reports. >> today, i'm announcing the united states is targeting the main artery of russia's economy. >> reporter: joe biden ordered a u.s. ban on russian coal, oil, and gas, which makes up over 40% of russia's revenue. >> that means russian oil will no longer be acceptable in u.s. ports and the american people will deal a powerful blow to putin's war machine. >> reporter: but it also affects gas prices here at home. at a time when drivers across the country are already paying record high prizes at the pump, well over $4 a gallon. >> it's more expensive than i've ever paid. >> it blows my mind. it's a crazy number. >> reporter: ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy tweeted that he was thankful for the u.s. and
3:42 am
joe biden. top american companies are also hitting russia's company. coca cola, pepsico, mcdonald's, starbucks, and yum. the parent company of kfc and taco bell have all suspended operations. >> putin is determined to dominate and control ukraine. >> reporter:st bl,yil t the consequences, and the military setbacks, warning the situation will only get worse. >> where that leads, i think, is for an ugly next few weeks in which he doubles down, as i said before, with scant regard for civilian casualties, which urban fighting can get even uglier. >> reporter: there is also growing concern over the americans who are still being held in russia. the whereabouts of wnba star brittney griner are still unknown after she was arrested on drug charges. you can see here, state tv just released her booking photo.
3:43 am
and yesterday, joe biden called the family of marine family trevor reed, to reaffirm the u.s. commitment to bring him home. reed was detained in 2019 after a night out. weijia jiang reporting. the invasion of ukraine has touched off the greatest flood of refugees in europe since world war ii. some of them have families in the united states, but that doesn't mean they'll be welcomed here with open arms. the state department has rules about resettlement in america. tony dokoupil is on the poland/ukraine board we are one family's story. >> reporter: nor than 2 million refugees have fled that war in ukraine in the last two weeks alone, and some of them have families back in the united states. but according to the state department, ukrainians are only being considered for resettlement in america if the countries they fled into are also unsafe. we spoke to one ukrainian-american who flew all the way to poland from san francisco, hoping to fly back with two teenage relatives, and learned here that's not allowed.
3:44 am
as reports spread that war was coming to the ukrainian city of odesa, marina safy told her 19-year-old sister victoria and 16-year-old nephew, and told them to run. >> they were able to jump on the train and stay tied just like that. there were a lot of people trying to get out. >> reporter: the moment they were safely on board, she and her husband ran as well, boarding the next flight from california to poland. and leaving behind their two children, the youngest just 2 years old. >> the directions were that as soon as you get out of the train, you are not going to any volunteers. you sit there and wait 10 days 20, 20 days until your aunt picks you up. >> reporter: they reunited, thinking the hard part was over. but that's where their luck ran out.
3:45 am
>> when we went to the american embassy, they turned us away. they have no sympathy or understanding, even when i say i'm american citizen. >> reporter: despite reassurance from the u.s. government -- >> we're going to provide humanitarian assistance. already living in the u.s., the state department so far hasn't announced any exempceptions for those fleeing the war, even if their closest family relatives are american. she was stunned. >> when the leaders of the country tell you we stand with you, we support you, this is not actual support. actual support is when you help me to bring my family. they don't have any place to go. they have to go with me. >> reporter: to make matters worse, victoria lost her passport in the rush out of odesa. >> poland let her in without even checking the documents. they allow people in without even birth certificate, because
3:46 am
there is a humanity. and why america cannot be human? >> reporter: the situation has left her in what feels like an impossible no man's land. she can't leave her family in ukraine, but she also needs to get back to her children in america. how long can you stay in this limbo? >> it's extremely hard. i'm a fighter. i'm going to be fighting for them. i will not send them back. i will never send them back. >> reporter: but stuck in poland and prohibited for now from entering the u.s., there's only one place these teenagers really want to be. >> she wants to go home. >> that was tony dokoupil in poland. more than a few analysts have compared ukraine's battle against the russian invaders to the biblical story of david and goliath. mo rocca has a look. >> reporter: despite its military might, the global goliath russia meeting its modern day david. a vast invading army under the command of an autocrat.
3:47 am
>> so david fighting against goliath. and we really are david against goliath. >> reporter: a much smaller country under siege. its leader refusing to flee. >> president volodymyr zelenskyy. >> when it was clear that zelenskyy was staying, what did you think? >> i thought, he's a leader. he's a david. and putin is a coward. >> reporter: steve leader is a lead rabbi in los angeles. >> we have elderly ukrainian women making molotov cocktails in their basement. if that's not a david/goliath story, i don't know what is. >> reporter: in the biblical story of david and goliath, the israelites are outmatched by the philistines and the giant goliath. only a shepherd boy named david, armed with a sling and five smooth stones, is willing to
3:48 am
challenge goliath. with a single shot, he fells the giant, and the philistines flee. >> every one of us at one point or another has faced frightening odds. there are many stories like this where a powerful narcissist, a bully, frankly, ends up being crushed under the weight of his own demagoguery and his own narcissism. >> reporter: fighting increasingly grim odds is ukrainian leader volodymyr zelenskyy who became famous playing a schoolteacher. who unexpectedly becomes president of ukraine. and whose words as the actual president have galvanized people well beyond his country. >> translator: even if you destroy all our cathedrals and
3:49 am
churches, you will not destroy our sincere faith in god, in ukraine. >> reporter: he was raised in the soviet union as a jew. he understands what it means to be a outsider. >> soviet jews have their passports stamped. >> a black mark on the passport that says you're a pariah. so he understands a bully and doing the best you can with what you have. that's in his dna. as is the dna of goliath in putin. that might makes right. that the leader is not accountable for the suffering of his own people. >> reporter: for the moment, as russia continues its merciless advance, zelenskyy, a 44-year-old husband and father, remains resolute. >> translator: we have nothing to lose but our own freedom and dignity. for us, this is the greatest
3:50 am
treasure. >> reporter: i can't be the only one asking himself what would i do? could by that person? >> there's an old yiddish expression i think of often, which, is when you must, you can. if you had asked zelenskyy five years ago, do you think you could be the man who, five years from now, stands up to vladamir putin and the russian army? he might have said no. >> reporter: but rabbi leader says a challenge this great also requires a certain kind of faith. >> in order to be a david, you have to be in denial of the full powers of the goliath, right? it takes some denial. the truth of the story is, you may not always win with courage, one prilosec otc in the morning blocks heartburn all day and all night. prilosec otc prevents excess acid production that can cause heartburn. so don't fight heartburn, block it with prilosec otc.

and whatever might come next. just about the only thing everyone we spoke with here was sure of was this. >> she's ready to scream to the whole world how much she hates putin. >> two words, two meaning of two words, fear and hate. i hate that country. i hate them. >> reporter: if the russian president thought ukraine somehow wasn't a real country before, he certainly united it behind a common cause.
