Good morning from Lviv. I’ll be a guest on MSNBC in an hour and seven minutes to talk about my story on Ukraine building a war crimes database.

Here’s my story on this small supply network. There are many, many more like it.

The Russian invasion has mobilized people from every walk of Ukrainian life. From Lviv, my story on a group of movie industry pals who are taking international donations and sourcing high-end military tools to the front:

“The war showed who is who. Who we thought was good turned out to be bad. Who was angry became nice.” After the Russian retreat, fear and paranoia about collaborators in Ukraine’s villages:

Last weekend, Chicago saw more murders than Highland Park. The flood of resources to the suburb reminded South Siders they’re being ignored. “Our babies see people get shot and there’s no counseling. They have to suck it up and deal with it.”

I asked my Uber driver what’s the biggest tip he’s ever received. He said he picked up some maga folks on the morning of Jan. 6 at a DC hotel and brought them to the rally. A woman from Texas heard his west African accent and asked if he was “illegal”and whether he had a license.

I asked if he was telling them the truth. “Hell no, I voted for Biden! I just wanted to calm down the situation. I played those people. I’m probably on their Instagram somewhere.”

The group of Trump supporters outside the Philly convention center has dwindled to five and now the demonstration is just 150 Biden supporters interrupting reporter standups with dancehall breakdowns.
