11:02 pm
pontoon bridges in luhansk region. russians building them to move farther west in donbas offensive. and ukrainians claim they've recaptured more villages in the kharkiv region, much of the area still in range of russian artillery fire. in the south, ukraine is offering to swap russian prisoners of war for wounded ukrainian soldiers in the azovstal steel plant. as many as 600 people inside the factory need medical attention but believes all civilians are out. >> translator: even though the enemy outnumbers us by far, they've got aviation, navy, and for us, it is just not enough to hear from them they're doing everything possible.
11:03 pm
what we need to here is they're doing and will be doing everything possible to rescue their soldiers. >> meanwhile the mayor of kyiv tells cnn he's still worried about the possibility of russia using tactical nuclear weapons on the capital and has no doubt that kyiv is still russia's main target. >> sorry, personal reason, but we can give you guarantee, any second, any minutes can be russian can land in any building, anyplace in ukraine. >> new surveillance video obtained by cnn appears to show russian soldiers shooting two unarmed ukrainian civilians in the back. being investigated as possible
11:04 pm
war crime. warning, it's graphic and difficult to watch. >> reporter: a stark example of potential war crime perpetrated by russian forces that the world has not yet seen. russian shoeldiers shooting two civilians in the back. cnn obtained the surveillance video from the vehicle dealership along the main highway to kyiv. it's from the beginning of the war as russians tried and failed to shell their way to the capital. fight along this road was clearly fierce but what happened outside this business was not a battle between soldiers or soldiers and armed civilians but a cowardly, cold-blooded killing of two men by armed forces. we tracked down the men's identities, one the owner of the business, family did not want him named.
11:05 pm
other was hired to guard it. >> translator: father is. >> reporter: daughter wanted world to know what the russians did to him. they were greeted and frisked by the russian soldiers and walking away. neither seemed to suspect what was about to happen. that's when a member of the civilian fighting force who talked to the men a couple of days before the attack told cnn. he did not want to be identified for security reasons. >> translator: we came there earlier, warned people to leave that place. also hoped for the humanity of russian soldiers, unfortunately they have no humanity. >> reporter: see the two men walking in shadows toward the camera, behind them, soldiers they were just talking to emerge. few more steps and their bodies drop to the ground, dust shoots
11:06 pm
up from the bullets hitting the pavement, soldiers opened fire. leonid gets up, limping but alive. gets inside the guard booth to call to local guys for help. this is one of those guys. ukrainian truck driver turned civilian soldier. >> translator: first of all we felt a big responsibility. we knew we should go there, a man needed our help. he was still alive. >> reporter: commander of ragtag team of civilians who took up arms to fight for ukraine and tried to save the men. when the guard called them, explained at transpired with the soldiers, said the soldiers asked who they were, asked for cigarettes before letting them go and then shooting them in the back. when men got to leonid, he had lost massive amounts of blood. >> translator: one man went there, guy was alive. gave him bandages and tried to
11:07 pm
perform first aid but the russians started shooting. >> reporter: tried to fight back, unsuccessful. didn't have the firepower to save their countrymen. have you seen the video? >> translator: i can't watch it now, will save it to the cloud and leave for children and grandchildren, they should know about the crime and always know who our neighbors are. >> reporter: the russian soldiers showed how callous they are, drinking, toasting one another and looting the place minutes after slaying the two men. what were the last words he said to you? >> translator: bye-bye, kisses, say hello to your boys. >> reporter: boys will be left with terrible lasting memory, death of their grandfather investigated as war crime by prosecutors. cnn. kyiv. about an hour from now, finland is expected to formally
11:08 pm
announce its intention to join nato. finland has traditionally tried to stay neutral but the war in ukraine has galvanized pro-nato sentiment there, could potentially put nato forces along 800 miles of russia's western border, says russia only has himself to blame. >> if that would be the case that we join, my response would be that you caused this. look tat the mirror. >> neighboring sweden is also close to deciding whether it will pursue nato membership. a fast-moving wildfire is burning through laguna hills area of southern california with mandatory evacuation order in effect for some neighborhoods. 20 homes, some described as
11:09 pm
multimillion-dollar mansions overlooking the pacific ocean are engulfed in flames. fire broke out and quickly grew in size, 200 acres, 80 hectares were burning with no containment. more coming up in weather segment. u.s. senate failed to advance a democrat led bill to protect access to abortion nationwide. two dozen progressives from the house loudly marched to the senate, making sure their voices were heard. >> my decision. >> my body. >> my decision. >> but didn't help, women's health protection act failed 49-51 vote amid strong republican resistance.
11:10 pm
democratic senator joe manchin joined republicans to vote against the measure, saying it was too broad. >> motion is not agreed to. >> it is not roe v. wade codification but expansion, wipes 500 state laws off the books, expands abortion. with that that's not where we are today. >> vice president kamala harris later slammed republicans for the failed senate vote. >> this vote clearly suggests that the senate is not where the majority of americans are on this issue. it also makes clear that a priority for all who care about this issue, priority should be to elect pro-choice leaders at local, state and federal level. because what we are seeing around this country are extremist republican leaders seeking to criminalize and punish women for making decisions about their own body.
11:11 pm
>> the vote comes at time of mounting concerns after draft opinion revealed the u.s. supreme court could be poised to overturn the landmark roe vs. wade ruling. in many parts of the world, price of everything keeps increasing. but in the u.s. costs are no longer going up as fast. first time since august, pace of inflation took a breather. consumer price index up 8.3% in april from year ago, down from 8.5% increase in march, but that little dip is little consolation when the cost of everything from gas and food to used cars and housing is still so high. with inflation near a 40-year high, president is pinning a lot of the blame on russia as well as republicans. >> my predecessor, the great
11:12 pm
maga king, the deficit increased every single year he was president. they don't want to solve inflation by lowering costs, they want to solve it by raising taxes and lowering your income. >> senior fellow at school of management at claremont graduate university who joins me from los angeles. great to have you with us. >> great to join us. >> a flicker of hope with inflation falling slightly, but still close to 40-year high. is this indication inflation has peaked in the u.s. and worst is behind us? or do we need to be more cautious than that? >> i still think we have to be more cautious. talk about the hope, we want to talk about hope. good news that -- especially around gas prices and consumable items didn't grow as quickly, but the core inflation,
11:13 pm
excluding food and gas, it did go up. wasn't cost of food, shelter, airline prices and new vehicles, a new contribution to increase of those items. we're not out of it. we're also all hoping for a watershed moment we think the peak was here, but it's still early to say we are there. i think the monthly labor department reports will be looked closely on next month as well. >> right. despite this very small dip in inflation, americans are having to make tough choices, as they battle high food and gas prices. how long might it be before inflation is manageable level, do you think? >> great question. i don't think it's going to come down as fast as it went up for sure. will take a little more time
11:14 pm
than anticipated. federal reserve is going to increase interest rates five more times possibly by end of 2022. that indicates to you that they needed to be more aggressive. but does take time to feel it get to normal level. in all hopes we get down to somewhere less than 8%, to 6% by end of the year, but still has to be a lot of work done and means all the other variables of supply chain and those aspects come into line. but going to take a year or two to stabilize this, unless the fed can really dial in other aspects to this. >> and president joe biden says inflation is his top domestic priority, but many americans blame him for wear things stand right now, even though the pandemic, supply chain issues, and the war in ukraine are the main causes of high inflation rates. is the biden administration
11:15 pm
doing enough and everything it can to bring inflation down? >> tell you one thing, they will need to coming up to the midterm elections. they will need to show progress from now to then of policies they put in to ensure that inflation doesn't get out of control. funny, nobody remembers what you did six months ago but what you do now. this is an opportunity for the administration to show and help and do whatever levers they can to get -- to get inflation in place but also to ensure that prices don't get out of control. that's key for the consumers and for the economy to get back to where it needs to get to. >> there is certainly not much time for the biden administration between now and midterms to show some sort of positive change here. but just going forward, what is the best strategy for lowering
11:16 pm
inflation? >> truthfully, just need to stabilize it. fed needs to take that aggressive cut on the interest rates, but also let's be honest, u.s. administration and economy needs jobs to keep growing, labor market still has to continue to do what it's doing. truthfully, supply chain woes, war in ukraine, even the china/u.s. tariffs, put that on the table. if the u.s. and china get the tariffs off, could help ease up some of the inflation pressure, too, maybe a percentage base point and could be a win. all on the able and up to the biden administration to decide what it wants to do to show it's doing something. >> hope we see fall in inflation by end of the year. we'll watch closely. ryan, many thanks.

they've reached conclusions that all the indications, evidence and witnesses affirm assassination by israeli special units. israel's position remains we don't know who fired the shot that killed shireen, and in the immediate aftermath of her killing, israeli prime minister and other spokes people were implying the bullet came from palestinian militants in the area, and they were engaging with. that was taken a little bit back in the day, but we do not know from israel's perspective, can't say who fired the shot that killed shireen. funeral procession in 40 minutes, body taken from the hospital in ramallah to

every day russians are increasingly finding a way to get around the kremlin's tight control of online news coverage of the war in ukraine. been flocking to something called virtual private networks, vpns, that allows them to securely access sites, normally locked within their country. download surge in the war began and continuing rate of nearly 300,000 a day. for more on this, turn to a russian media entrepreneur and founder of the start-up the question. she joins me now from london. thank you so much for being with
11:30 pm
us. >> thank you for having me, hello. >> millions of russians are downloading the virtual private networks to get around the kremlin's effort to block certain websites, for many of these people, they can find out what is really going on in ukraine. how big a threat could this pose to vladimir putin and his false version of the war? >> i believe that the reason russians are downloading vpn is not because they want access to information, there are other reasons. and also unfortunately this time with this cold war we're having now and iron curtain we're having now, case of the previous one is not applicable. it's not that you believe in certain things because you don't have access to the information. as like with the covid, people
11:31 pm
not believing in the vaccine because didn't have access to the information that vaccines actually helping. same situation applies to russia. people believe, some believe ukraine war is justified, not because they don't know what's going on. they know. access to the information itself doesn't help unfortunately. >> even as millions of russians succeed in penetrating putin's digital iron curtain, how possible is it that the kremlin would eventually be able to shut down access to these vpns and cut the country off to the rest of the world? >> well, technically it is possible. as we know there is not impossible for kremlin administration but it's much more difficult because there are
11:32 pm
different vpn providers and kremlin itself spends part of the infrastructure used for vpn. it's technically possible, different countries want to constrain freedom of access to the internet. but again i believe that a, vpn is used not only for people critical to vladimir putin. can be pro-government and use vpn. don't have to be putin's critic or in position to be afraid of the government. people within the government use vpn to protect their data against the government. normal case in russia. i don't believe it will be blocked in near future in russia. >> and older generation get their news from state television and accept everything that putin says about the war.
11:33 pm
younger russians are more likely to turn to the internet and use vpn for news or access to programming. do you think there will ever been enough russians who reject putin's lies or is it highly unlikely? >> i believe that news and media coverage, in itself, will not tremendously influence their attitudes toward war. we saw that people believe in well-established outlets. it's not choice between russia today and cnn, it's what whatsapp group to follow and who to trust and circle of social activities and kremlin is very good at infiltrating whatsapp. i believe many russians oppose the war and don't hear their voices because it's dangerous to
11:34 pm
