"Ten 52. Tens of thousands of people who evacuated Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region are risking their lives to return to homes close to the front line. That's because they can't afford to live in safer places. One woman was killed by a missile outside her home just two days after returning, the mayor's office in one small city there estimates 70% of evacuated residents have now come back. There's new evidence that Russia may soon have to stop fighting in Ukraine. National security correspondent JJ green has more. Western intelligence says inconclusive fighting continues in both Donbass and kurzon. Part of the reason for that, Russian commanders have to decide whether to fight to take more territory or defend the territory that it has. They don't have enough troops to do both. Another problem, they're running out of precision weapons, and they can't repair the thousands of tanks, personnel carriers, and general support vehicles that have been damaged in the war. Ukraine's military is identified a repair facility inside Russia, about 7 miles from the Ukrainian border with hundreds of military vehicles piled up. Russia doesn't have the people or the parts to repair them. JJ green, WTO P news. Russian owned energy giant Gazprom says the flow of natural gas to Germany is being cut to 20% of the Nord stream one pipeline's capacity. Gazprom tweeted the news today, saying it was shutting down a turbine for repairs. The German government is rejecting the notion that technical reasons would lead to further gas reductions. The move ramps up fears that Russia may cut off gas as political leverage over the war in Ukraine.

The mayor's office in one small city there estimates that 70% of evacuated residents have come back. Meantime, despite a clearly crumbling military effort, Russia is again claiming it's going to take over the entire nation of Ukraine. National security correspondent JJ green joins us live with more. Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says Moscow's overarching goal in Ukraine is to topple president volodymyr zelensky's government. Lavrov made those comments in Cairo today, but there's no visible evidence that Russia even has enough resources to continue fighting in Ukraine for the next few months, let alone something as grandiose is killing Ukraine's president, which by the way is what he's indicated it would take for him to stop fighting back against Russia's brutal war. Intelligence experts tell WTO, this is likely more of Russia's hollow threat language aimed at instilling fear into Ukrainians and the rest of the world. At the same time, Ukraine and authorities are paying very close attention to this because the Kremlin is well known for its assassination squads. Reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. JJ Russia claims it's broken up a plan to persuade Russian pilots to commit treason and it says a major media organization is involved in this. What's this about? Yeah, that's right, Russia's FSB claimed the day to have busted a Ukrainian military intelligence operation to recruit Russian pilots and to hijack warplanes in exchange for money and EU citizenship. Christo grosso. He's the lead investigator for the independent investigative outlet called Belle and Kat, was alleged to have taken part in this recruitment process. But gross have said today on Twitter, he didn't have anything to do with this. The bellingcat team did meet some people, some essentially what he calls some operatives or maverick X operatives that were trying to recruit Russian pilots to surrender their planes to Ukraine, but he said it was not organized by Ukrainian authorities, but by these operatives. And he said that it was basically something they got involved in while looking into a botched Ukrainian sting operation to capture Russian mercenaries. So he had nothing to do with it. He says, it's just another one of those situations where the FSB got something they thought they could make some hay out of and maybe it works and maybe it doesn't. That's WTO's JJ green.

How Is Putin Feeling Right Now? Rebekah Koffler Explains
"Let's do a little bit of red teaming the CIA's famous for during the Cold War writing the psychological profiles of the enemy like a khrushchev or Saddam Hussein. How is Putin thinking right now? So we've had a war since February is he confident? Is he feeling strong? The latest report from the UK is that 50,000 Russian soldiers have been killed already in Ukraine. So if you were back at DIA, if you were consulting for the administration, riding the psychological profile of where is Vladimir Putin today, what kind of words would you use? Putting his feelings strong. Yes, he has already chopped off about 20%, one 5th of Ukraine, very strategic areas. The so called the Donetsk and Lorentz people's republics. This is where the industrial heartland is of Ukraine, all of the coal mines, the deposit of very high quality coal, minerals, he is also blockading right now the grains, the exports that Ukraine, traditionally, is famous for and which allow Ukraine to feed basically their own people. While they can't get them out, and all those talks, the trilateral talks of the authoritarian trio, Erdoğan, raisi and Putin, the threesome, the bromance, threesome that's going on right now, in terms of the exporting and releasing Ukraine's grains now, I'm not very optimistic. This is all a charade each of them have the wrong agendas and those agendas do not include Ukraine and releasing the hunger. They alleviating rather the hunger. Yeah, to have Erdoğan of turkey and Putin integrand together that is not a not a safe combination.

"There's a new address in Moscow these days, Donetsk people's republic square. There's also this one, 55.75° north and 37.58° east, both will bring you to the U.S. embassy in Russia's capital. As NPR's Charles Maine's explains from Moscow. The address rivalry comes amid bitter differences between the U.S. and Russia over the conflict in Ukraine in an online public vote that seem designed to troll. And so it was with the wing that Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria zahara celebrated the U.S. embassy's new address, the people's republic square, as a tribute to Russian support for Kremlin backed separatists fighting in the Donbass in eastern Ukraine. I hope the U.S. won't take too long to recognize the new republic said zahara in a press conference last month, and she urged Russians to write the new embassy address often. Fast forward to this week and the U.S. unveiled a workaround, the embassy's website now lists its coordinates as coordinates, 55.75° north, and 37.58° east, digits that supposedly get you where you need to be. On a recent rainy afternoon, I tested that theory on taxi driver Denise usmanov, I punched in the coordinates. And I popped in people's republic square on usman of screen. It was the first he'd heard of it. It doesn't matter what they call it, says usman of my job is to get you there. Besides he notes, this city is always changing. For Moscow, the shifting nature of streets and politics isn't exactly new. The Bolshevik revolution of 1917 saw tsarist era addresses ditched in favor of those honoring the communist leadership just as the end of the USSR in 1991 brought the return of many historical names. Sergei stank, who served as a deputy mayor for the city during that era of change, says it took residents some time to adapt to the new names, but he has no idea when or if locals will take to the nets people's republic square. It's just what today we call trolling says donkey. But even if Russia gets the last laugh in this battle of addresses, the U.S. can take some comfort in numbers.
