9:13 am
a new intercontinental ballistic missile launch took place in north western russia . close the finish border. it hit its target in the cum shatka peninsula, eats east of japan called the sar match. the long range weapon has been in development for several years. russian officials say it can defeat existing missile defense systems. us defense official said russia gave advanced warning of the test and did not consider it a threat. the united states, russian president vladimir putin, however, framed the test as a warning it, when you can, these truly unique weapon will in handsome, military potential of armed forces. it will reliably provides a key routine from russia, from external threats, and will make those who in the heat of frantic aggressive rhetoric try to threaten our country, think twice with for more this, let's bring in frank lead, which she's a former military intelligence officer. and alex's in military capabilities and
9:14 am
strategy at the university of portsmouth. frank, what do we know about this? a miss al? should we be worried? no, not really. analissa been waiting for this vehicle. this rocket to be tested for about a year. park of a decade long program to replace what nato calls the say to him, by the way was made to me pro in ukraine to the other night late eighty's early ninety's. so we're looking for a replacement for this is it? it was tested yesterday. nothing particularly to worry about because it's likely to be, it was accompanied by the expected sabre rattling, but it's really nothing particularly out of the ordinary. there's been a lot of speculation as to whether moscow my turn to tactical nuclear weapons. this is an interconnected continental strategic missile. but what does it say about the
9:15 am
nuclear threat? well, it has to be said that there is a nuclear threat arising from ukraine. it's different in scale from that presented by the, the new miss style that was tested yesterday. and it is a serious threat. we speak a lot, don't we about chemical weapons, which is a weapon of mass destruction. technically, that really isn't relatively low like casualties. but a nuclear weapon, of course, is entirely different. and you can use a tactical nuclear weapons, is present russian military doctrine, particularly and break through the kind of was say, no, you cry. no, i don't think it's likely that they will use such a weapon. but it does exist in that doctrine. if you really ation, if you kind of throw back the russians are facing human nation and defeat, that will be an option. however, nato has been playing a really quite clever game over the last week anyway, over this, they have been adopting enough to do what's called constructive ambiguity. that
9:16 am
made it very clear that there will be serious consequences that have been left until those consequences will be on the have plenty of arrows in the quiver to be able to deter this. if it is very lucky, it will, by the way. now the white house, it did not seem to be too fast about this test, saying that they had been given advance notifications. what does that tell you? it simply confirms that this was an expected test. as i said, this is a decade long program to, to replace an old system. the americans are conducting similar replacement, texas sciences. interestingly, i think it was 2 weeks ago. the americans postponed a similar test or tested a similar kind of missile intercontinental ballistic missile. so as to avoid any sense of escalation in this context, because that's not the approach russia takes. so now the pentagon moving particularly about this, they've been watching it for
9:17 am
a long time. they're expecting it. it happened. it succeeded in suppose it was supposed to on development, will continue in russia as it will in america. now frank, it's not a day 3 of what's considered a russia's new offensive in easton, you cried. what stands out to you compared to the last 2 months of fighting? well, 1st of all, what we're seeing now is 2nd world war style. entrenchment, battles, and circum, or attempts by russian forces to ent, circle the crating forces, particularly in this arrow donuts region. now that's in that far in the south se there's a salient, a bose international car territory. what the russians are trying to do is cut off, you kind of forces in it's a grinding battle. i don't think the russians are ready for it. that feeding people in piece meal yesterday, ukrainian intelligence, which i found quite interesting,
9:18 am
said that they killed between 25 and 30 libyan and syrian mercer. he said something about manning situation of the russians. they are clearly on a deadline, on a timeline. otherwise, they would not have conducted this attack at this time. they had make some games. as the reporter said earlier, what's interesting me, however, in the north around caught carcass what my represents to know the the russians desperately trying to retake ground your trainings took last week. so this is a grinding struggle is going on as we speak. many people are being killed and the russian secret breakthrough they have not made a break through. the area we're talking about is actually composed quite large if many towns in that move in those areas, you plaintiff forces will be able to leverage our advantages. but we haven't got to that point yet, that fighting on the edges of federal done, it's russians claim to take in a couple of small towns this or this battle will go on for several weeks. frankly,
