2:02 am
western goals in the conflict. while ukrainian forces have managed to recapture more of the country's ne russian forces and mary paul have trapped $100.00 civilian men in a steel plant. they're refusing to surrender, saying they will fight to the end. and at least one person's been killed and 5 injured during rush and shelling of the southern port city of odessa. the ukrainian military says a shopping center and a warehouse were hit. all right, let's speak now to stephen nick's. he's the regional director for eurasia, the international republican institute. he joins us live from washington, d. c. steven, thanks for joining us today. m u. s. a director of national intelligence, admiral haines said that russia is preparing for a prolonged conflict in ukraine. what exactly does a prolong conflict look like at this stage? well, 1st of all, director haines has a job to do, and her job consists of preparing for contingencies. so she's planning out various
2:03 am
various contingencies for the war against ukraine, m that prolonged conflict is one of them. ah, we have just completed a national survey. you gray of ukrainian people and results are astounding. 95 percent of ukrainians feel that ukraine will prevail in this conflict. 83 percent of ukrainians feel that the war will and some time in calendar year 2022. so if you take public opinion into account, clearly the ukrainians feel of this conflict will not be a lengthy one. as stephen, the u. s. doesn't believe that there is any imminent threat that president putin would move to use nuclear weapons. but are there growing fears that increasing western support to ukraine would provoke russia? again, i think we have to be careful about this phrase o b o avoiding provoking the humor poon, ah,
2:04 am
we have suffered through this so many times when the west was afraid to provide military assistance because it might provo loved him or putin. oh, it's very clear now that ukrainians, if given the appropriate military assistance can defeat the russian armed forces in the battlefield. so i don't think we should be concerned about provoking the dimmer wooten any further. i think you've seen from the data, the ukrainian people are not fearful of a nuclear threat. we would assess that russia would only use nuclear arms if its territorial integrity were threatened. and that's not part of ukraine's game plan you. gaining armed forces are determined to drive russian armed forces out of ukrainian territory period. how difficult do you think it's going to be for the intelligence community to try and predict to president putin moves in the months ahead? it's very difficult because the dimmer potent is so unpredictable. but again,
2:05 am
i think the us sent some very clear signals through secretary austin when he visited ukraine. and then in europe, where he sad were in this to, well, he was basically channeling what ronald reagan said during the cold war, which she, when she stated the objective of the us is we, when they lose, that was a clear message to the kremlin. and that was, that was sent directly by the defense secretary, and i think russia is take, you know, that stephen, miss haynes said that both russia and ukraine believed that they'll be able to make military progress. how much tougher does that make it to try to reach any kind of diplomatic solution? all again, based on ukrainian public opinion, they feel that they are winning. they've won the battle for ukraine for, i'm sorry, forgive. and they continue to have success in forestalling russian advances in the
2:06 am
east. so i think this is all predicated, the outcome that is on continue western military assistance to cry. if we provide the assistance necessary ukraine will prevail in this conflict. stephen nicks is the regional director for eurasia at the international republican institute. thanks so much for joining us. thank you. ukraine says it's forces in the eastern don boss region destroyed a dozen russian tanks on tuesday, as well as several armored vehicles and aircraft. the regional governor of danielle says 3 residents were killed and 3 others injured us at bag reports from michael, i've got a town on the path of the russian offensive. silent and empty. this is mc alive, cut. it's like this across many towns and villages in the east of ukraine. russia says it wants to take that don bus region. most people here have fled, fearing the russian advance. those who remain wakeful,
