3:05 am
the, these attacks and these miss all his throat is starks were since the morning here in odessa, after the air raid also went off during the day since the morning the director of the u. s. intelligence agency at the c. i a says he's convinced vladimir putin is doubling down on the when ukraine william bands says despite the resistance from ukrainian forces, the russian president is not willing to lose. he added the patient has been stewing for years and as may surveys had by grievance ambition and insecurity. i think he's in a frame of mind in which he doesn't believe he can afford to lose. so the stakes are quite high in this phase, and in, in the east of ukraine. as you know, you cranes, military with support, you know, from the west continues to resist. but i don't think this means that, you know,
3:06 am
putting is, is deterred at this point because he's stake so much on the choice that he made to launch this invasion that i think he's convinced right now the doubling down still will enable him to make progress. let's get more in this. mark. fitzpatrick is associate fellow with the international institute teacher studies. he's a former deputy assistant secretary of stacy joins us via the washington d. c. thank you for your time, sir. buns is of course, the former us ambassador to russia who has spent much time studying the russian leda. so it's quite interesting to get his perspective. what's that out for you from his comments? i think there are 2 things. one is what he said about russia doubling down there. put in really does not want to lose, but he's not going to win for sure. ukraine is just fighting back so fiercely. and with more and more support from the west. i don't think it's going to win, but what does it mean that he can't lose? does he have to redefine his objectives?
3:07 am
and if he is doubling down now as it still loses, what happens? then you're pulled down and then use nuclear weapons. i'm quite worried about that . the other aspect of yes, go ahead. sorry. so you know, we're sure that he things said peyton does not show signs of planning to use tactical nuclear weapons. well, i think that's good so far couldn't is national those science, but one couldn't interpret other things and had said, meaning that they could, he certainly haven't ruled them out. and the problem i see is that if russia doubled down in the don't boss and southern ukraine does not achieve his military objectives. ben, what will you do? what he turned to? i don't think we can rule it out. you know, we were all surprised when launched this invasion. well, hey, listen, surprised. they knew about it, but still it was the pricing and i just wouldn't rule out the possible use of nuclear weapons bends. was also keen to play down that it was us intelligence that
3:08 am
had helped equating targets and kale watching generals on the battlefield and think one of its ships. why do you think that is? well, it's united states cannot be seen to be so involved in this war and directly targeting russian generals, i mean that, that is really, it's not just that it's a provocation that could escalate matters, but it displays into russia sensitive grievance. and, you know, we don't need to do that. now, russia, russia, since the reason being attacked and prevailed upon it, is this the other line? but still you have to always see the other side. psychological reasoning and not play into it. what did you make of his remarks about china? yeah, that was the most interesting thing. can you really because in east asia, everyone is worried had been worried that russia's invasion of ukraine could
3:09 am
have a bedded, china's interest in invading taiwan. something that it has been talking more and more about, but i really don't. so burden said that, you know, this is not how china will realize that it's invading another country. doesn't work out the way you think. and that's a good thing. but i don't think china was going to be any way to have other music squeezing taiwan economically. lot, fitzpatrick, really interesting to get your perspective associate fellow at the international institute for strategic studies. thanks for having a european union envoy will visit iran on tuesday as a block seeks to save the 2015 nuclear court. a foreign policy chief, joseph morales said an interview is seeking a middle weight and the deadlock are all as considering a scenario whereby the designation is lifted on the i r g c,

. if a woman is seen in public, without head to toe covering she along with her husband, her mail guardian could be punished the bids not oh ha, the homes for the women who don't have a he job should be known. the men should be advised and warned. the strict enforcement of burka became a global symbol of the taliban rule when it was in power in the 1990s. since re taking control of afghanistan last year, taliban leaders have re introduced restrictions, mainly directed at women. this most recent decree is one of the harshest yet why is it that only one issue is a priority for one? why not? you know, policy and hunger on poverty, on lack of jobs, unsecure. if you taliban leaders have also cracked down on education for girls closing down secondary schools on the same day class was supposed to start you in

3:16 am
a state of emergency for the 2nd time in 5 weeks, go to bio roger pucks has been facing nationwide calls for his resignation. people are angry about his failure to control a worsening economic crisis. well, the emergency decree gives the president sweeping powers, including the ability to change or suspend laws cease property, an order detentions. people can be arrested and held for extended periods of time without the involvement of the courts. and the military can be called in to control or disperse protests. michelle fernandez has an agent from colombo. you could just look over my shoulder in front of the president's office. the president is like a director of that group of protesters that still outside. i essentially continuing into it's 29th day and that's their reaction to the emergency brought in by present . gotta be roger boxer. and those regulations obviously, are receiving criticism both here and abroad. we've had our human rights activists
3:17 am
. we've had the bar association that's a professional body of lawyers that have condemned it. they say that that agree of concerns at the promulgation of emergency to be use, at what have been largely peaceful protests, and the president of the vazo, c asian urging the president to revoke, ah, the state of emergency. and essentially, to withdraw that new set of regulation. so that's what we have the protests as themselves saying, they're not going to be cowed. there are, you know, they've had it with successive government, you know, trying to scare people to get their own ends achieved. and they said that after this long of having looted the country, having driven the country to its knees economically socially, that they're not going to be have they're not going to have their voices silent, they're going to speak up. and they're not going to be afraid by emergency
3:18 am
regulations that they will face these regulations. so that's where it's ends. tenisha card deny yakking is the deputy regional director of south asia research, amnesty international. she says the majesty matching could lead to serious rights abuses. the problem with the state of the emergency that has been declared is that it cannot be challenged in a court of law. and the result of the sleeping power was under the laws it, you know, it can inhibit several human rights issues, including your process. when people stood and detained for extended periods of time, the state can take control of private property and entry and such rights extended for committee for these. and we continue extremely concerned given that the purchase have been largely peaceful. and the response of the state has been considered excessive support. and so the reasoning behind it remained debatable but
3:19 am
the government must ensure that the prices are protected. solutions lie in the political stability in providing answers to the economy. prices such as necessitated people coming to the streets and demanding the better when drive. when we began pete and the solution is not to use the force. last night, we saw the expected you got to guess by police. we saw how children pregnant mothers and deliver affected by the gas earlier this month in april on the 21st. we saw how i could use a force in trouble can lead to the depth. and so really the strength must be brought to afford by the government, but equally by the armed forces and by the police in responding to a peaceful protest. hong kong next lead as g to be confirmed in the coming hours. john lee was the only candidate in the race to succeed carry land of the chaise
3:20 am
invite election committee at 1500 people. vessel by beijing. lee was ahead of security during the 2019 pro democracy process as can i to asian brown in hong kong age and what are they expecting? the next fee as well. what we expect is, of course, what you just alluded to in your introduction that john lee will win this contest. we knew what the outcome was going to be when the election campaign began because he has a so candidate. in this election, he's going to be chosen by basically some of hong kong business and political lead . a 11500 members. ringback in total and it's expected john lee as i say, we'll cross that threshold of $750.00 votes, which is what he needs to become the next leader of this territory. now john lee, as you rightly point out, was a performance security chief here. he was also a courier policeman, spending 40 years in the police force,
3:21 am
and i think beijing really likes his kind of tough guy image. his loyalty to beijing is unquestioned. he played an instrumental role in the protest here in 20192020, suppressing those protests. he endorsed the use of rubber bullets of tear gas and occasionally live rounds. he also played a key role in the implementation of a new national security law. which beijing impose on hong kong in 2020, which effectively criminalizes all forms of protest. the question is, you know, john lee has the backing of beijing, but can he get the trust of the people? the 4500000 registered voters of hong kong, who of course, will have no say in the selection. now moline, china had promised hong kong would be able to select it's the to choose. it's theda by universal a fridge that has stated in the basic law, which is essentially hong kong constitution. but critics say that beijing's
3:22 am
commitment to that to the moment is no longer the way it once was its diminishing. so the question now is whether the way hong kong leader is going to be elected on sunday is going to be the model for future elections for hong kong chief executives . and can for that. and jen brown there for us in hong kong. louise ignacio lulu de silva is taking another chance at brazil's presidency the last time the 76 year old held office was 12 years ago. this time round the left as late as trying to unseat the far right incumbent jaya. bull's narrow monica anarchy reports from sao paolo ah, spirits were high at this convention center. in so bold, thousands gathered to hear brazil's former president and reason ass, hulu led us silva, as he promised to defeat incumbent j bowles. fernando, in october's election,
