6:06 am
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 the east of ukraine. as you know, ukraine's military with support, you know, from the west continues to resist. but i, i don't think this means that, you know, putin is, is deterred at this point because he staked 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 locked fitzpatrick is an associate fellow, the international institute for st. jude to teacher studies. he says, russia is going to keep everything on the table to achieve its military objectives, including nuclear weapons, and 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
6:07 am
don't think we're going to win. but what does it mean that he can't lose? does he have to redefine his objectives? and if he is doubling down now us, it still says what happens, then we'll quadruple down and then use nuclear weapons. i'm quite worried about that. and the problem i see is that if russia doubles down in the don't boss and southern ukraine and does not achieve his military objectives, then what will he do? will he turn to us? i don't think we can rule it out. you know, we were all surprised when launched this invasion. well, i have wasn't surprised, they knew about it, but still it was surprising and i just wouldn't rule out the possible use of nuclear weapons. you know, obviously 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 sense of grievance. and, you know,
6:08 am
we don't need to do that. now russia, russia says the reason being attacked and prevailed on is sort of line. but still you have to always see the other side. psychological reasoning and not play into it . pulls of open for the confirmation of hong kong, next leader, an election committee of 1500 people vetted by beijing will make the choice. john lee is the only candidate in the race to succeed carrie lamb. it was the head of security during the 21900 pro democracy protest. let's go live now to adrian brown in hong kong. what are we going to expect in the next few hours? well, rob, in the next few minutes, we expect all the votes to have been cast by the election committee, which numbers more than $1400.00 men. that which numbers more than $4000.00, which of course will be selecting. john lee. now it's expected. he's more than can i get the 750 votes required to cross that threshold. and we expect the formal
6:09 am
announcement confirming john lee as hong kong next chief executive in the next hour or so. now john lee is a pretty controversial figure. he is a policeman, a former policeman. he was also the territory security chief, and he oversaw the crackdown on pro democracy protested in 2019 when he sanctioned the use of tear gas rubber bullets and also live rounds to disperse crowd. so a controversial figure in the eyes of many people, but crucially, rob, he has the backing of beijing. they like his sort of tough guy image. the big question though, is whether he's going to get the trust of, of hong kong, 4500000 registered voters, who of course have been denied a say in this contest, outside of the convention center, there was a very small protest numbering, what half a dozen that shows that her, the voice of protests has not been entirely diminished here in hong kong, but it is growing fainter as each year passes. john lee is a figure i think,
6:10 am
who wants to try to do a number of things. so, hong kong he said that he wants to, he sees himself, in fact, he says as a, as a conductor of a, of a new symphony will. of course, a symphony in hong kong during the past few years has been more wagner than vol. the so he has a very tough time ahead. he faces a number of challenges and in many ways the challenge is he faces a much tougher than the ones that confronted carry. lamb, the outgoing chief executive. yep. you mentioned that the, the opposition to this, the demonstrations are going, but they are small and they're getting smaller over the years. how are local people viewing this appointment, given the fact that this is essentially a shoe and, and they don't have a part placement. well, i think the attitude of most ordinary hong kong people is one of complete indifference. they know they have no say in this contest. if you went outside into
