>>> IN THE MEANTIME WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON, THE OTHER NEWS THIS FRIDAY NIGHT. VLADIMIR PUTIN HOLDING A MASSIVE RALLY IN RED SQUARE. DECLARING FOUR REGIONS OF UKRAINE ARE NOW PART OF RUSSIA. ALSO PUTIN'S NUCLEAR THREAT. WHAT HE SAID ABOUT THE U.S. AND PRESIDENT BIDEN'S RESPONSE. IAN PANNELL IN UKRAINE AGAIN TONIGHT. >> Reporter: TONIGHT, A RALLY IN RED SQUARE AS VLADIMIR PUTIN DECLARES FOUR REGIONS IN UKRAINE ARE NOW PART OF RUSSIA. LEADING THREE CHEERS FOR A WAR THAT'S GONE AWRY. >> HURRAH! HURRAH! HURRAH! >> Reporter: SPEAKING EARLIER AT A SIGNING CEREMONY AT THE KREMLIN, PUTIN CALLING THE WEST EVIL, BLAMING IT FOR THE WAR IN UKRAINE, THREATENING TO USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS. HE SAID AMERICA CREATED A PRECEDENT BY DROPPING ATOMIC BOMBS ON JAPAN IN 1945. PUTIN DOUBLING DOWN ON THIS WAR, WARNING, WE'LL PROTECT OUR LAND WITH ALL THE FORCES AND MEANS AT OUR DISPOSAL. AFTER SIGNING THE SO-CALLED TREATIES ALONG WITH THE LEADERS OF THE OCCUPIED UKRAINIAN TERRITORIES, THE AUDIENCE CHANTING RUSSIA, RUSSIA. BUT ON THE GROUND, THIS IS THE REALITY OF RUSSIA'S CAMPAIGN, STRIKING A HUMANITARIAN CONVOY IN UKRAINE, KILLING AT LEAST 30 PEOPLE, INCLUDING 2 CHILDREN, WITH MORE THAN 80 HOSPITALIZED. THE CIVILIAN CONVOY OF AROUND 40 VEHICLES WAS HEADING INTO RUSSIAN-OCCUPIED ZAPORIZHZHIA TO PICK UP FAMILY AND TAKE THEM TO SAFETY. ZAPORIZHZHIA IS ONE OF THE FOUR REGIONS VLADIMIR PUTIN ILLEGALLY DECLARED PART OF RUSSIA TODAY. PRESIDENT ZELENSKYY INSISTING UKRAINE WILL EXPEL RUSSIA FROM THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND FORMALLY APPLYING TO FAST TRACK NATO MEMBERSHIP. THE U.S. UNVEILING A NEW ROUND OF SANCTIONS. PRESIDENT BIDEN REPEATING, AMERICA AND ITS ALLIES WILL NEVER RECOGNIZE RUSSIA'S LAND GRAB AND DELIVERING A WARNING DIRECTLY AT PUTIN. >> AMERICA IS FULLY PREPARED WITH OUR NATO ALLIES TO DEFEND EVERY INCH OF NATO TERRITORY, EVERY SINGLE INCH. SO MR. PUTIN, DON'T MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I'M SAYING -- EVERY INCH. >> IAN PANNELL JOINS US TONIGHT FROM KHARKIV. HE AND PRESIDENT BIDEN WITH THAT STRONG WARNING THAT PUTIN THAT EVERY INCH OF NATO WILL BE DEFENDED? BUT WHAT ABOUT THESE FOUR REGIONS, THESE TERRITORIES CLAIMED BY RUSSIA NOW. >> Reporter: YEAH, I MEAN, I THINK ON ONE LEVEL IT WON'T IMMEDIATELY HAVE AN IMPACT, BUT REMEMBER THAT ZELENSKYY JUST APPLIED FOR FAST TRACK STATUS TO JOIN NATO. IF THAT WERE TO HAPPEN, WHICH I THINK IS UNLIKELY, AMERICA THEORETICALLY COULD BE DRAWN INTO THIS WAR BECAUSE OF EVENTS LIKE THAT MOVEMENT OF THOSE TERRITORIES. I THINK THE MORE IMMEDIATE THREAT IS THAT UKRAINE ATTACKS RUSSIAN TROOPS IN THE ANNEXED TERRITORIES AND THEN PUTIN ESCALATES WITH THE GROWING THREAT OF A NUCLEAR RESPONSE. DAVID? >> AN AWFUL TURN IN THIS CONFLICT THAT'S ALREADY BEEN SO AWFUL TO BEGIN WITH.
