This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Scott Pelley reported from Ukraine. He spoke with Ukraine's first lady, Olena Zelenska, who spoke about the toll the war has taken on Ukrainian families. 

"Half [our] families are separated," Zelenska said. "Someone is at the front, someone went abroad to save their children, someone is under [Russian] occupation. People are afraid to leave their [homes] because of shelling. They're afraid even to try to evacuate. We have thousands of dead. Hundreds of children are dead."
