9:06 pm
aren't his. >> marcus is, you know, this is different, kind quickly in those instances there was bloodshed, but nothing like what we have seen and you fear for the future with the convoy of russian troops lined up for what is to come in the days and weeks ahead. what is your best prognostication on how committed putin is to taking the country at all costs and what that means globally. >> well, from everything i've seen and you're right from everything i've seen. he's all in. i mean, it doesn't seem like when you look at a convoy of that size heading to the capital city that he is withdrawing war or having a second thoughts about this. it is significant. and for anyone who's sitting in in ukraine and and committed to defending their own nation. it's got to be is if you're facing the death star, i mean, it is massive. and you're right. those previous incursions of
9:07 pm
there was one that was pretty significant, pretty painful in chechnya. but some of the other ones were not as large ukraine as a as a nation of almost 45 million people. and he is he's dead set on taking, you know. >> so you did use an analogy which, you know, we all love an underdog story. >> this does seem to be the the evil empire. >> the the rebels are going up against. have you seen this actually play out in the end? >> well, certainly i command and i'm i'm just moved by the actions of the president. president zelinsky, who recently visited california petro poroshenko, who is also a former president of ukraine. the fact that they're out there that they haven't just gotten out of town and many of us may remember that when the taliban was heading into kabul, the president of
9:08 pm
afghanistan, you know, hit the road. it is. it is just heartening to see what people are ready to do to defend their homes, their families, their but it is. going to be and continue to likely be a very bloodied, very painful war these forces that that are just enormous and and have everything going for them in and the fact that vladimir putin really has no restraint has no conscience when it comes to this ref. what he has in mind is sort of his concept of this larger russian them. >> you wrote recently about the fact that ukraine had nuclear weapons gave them up. what it would mean today if ukraine still had that threat. >> that's right. you know, we know and we we want to support

9:10 pm
you know, we the united states, president biden said we will not engage militarily in ukraine is not a treaty ally. but if it spills over either by design or by accident, then all bets are off. the worrisome part of it all, of course, is that wladimir putin has raised the threat and he is raise. the stakes are ready to the highest level were not responding with a light kind response in the nuclear frame. but, you know, here's a guy who's willing to say anything and do anything in part so that he will survive in his role as president of russia. but in part because he is he has this goal of of expanding and of consolidating his power end of an of someday having after his name. the great the way that peter, the great for catherine, the great where

rational actor in the west or any other part of the world, it what he's doing is just not not sane. and but of course, he has a larger vision. he has some logic to what it is he wants to do and that's what's so dangerous is that he has normal known world. guardrails. no fear, but he's willing to do anything to achieve his goals. and and so, you know, he looks crazy to us. but in his own mind, he's not. >> well, we have to leave it right there. there's so much more to talk about. thank you so much for taking the marcus can lock us stanford's hoover institution. have a good evening. >> meanwhile, amid the aggression by russian, many companies are now concerned about their cybersecurity. come for u.s.. justin campbell has that part of the story. >> as there were in ukraine continues, many bay area tech companies are concerned about their cybersecurity. level of concern skyrocketed over the
