Doctor Ariel Cohen, senior fellow at the Atlantic council Eurasia center joins us as well as ros mathison. She covers Bloomberg news executive editor for international government joins us here to talk about a whole host of geopolitical issues and let's start with Ukraine because it seems to have ratcheted up over the weekend and doctor Cohn I like to start there. Just give us your thoughts on kind of how you see the situation in Ukraine. Maybe the events over the weekend and maybe what's next to come. Okay, so on the 8th of October 1 day after Putin 17th earth day. There was an explosion on the kitchen bridge that's a bridge that connected Crimean Peninsula with the mainland. And it disrupted the traffic on the bridge, most of the traffic is repaired now. It's multi media bridge. It has cars, railroad, electricity and whatnot. So it's a strategic supply line for the Russian military in the Crimea and in the south of Ukraine in the concerned region. After that, the Russians started bombarding Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, the kharkiv, the second largest

"Railway cars to catch fire, and resulting in a partial collapse. So this is a stunning victory for the Ukrainians on the battlefield, but it's also a stunning blow to Putin and to the Russian people. These satellite images show the extensive damage fire and smoke can be seen coming from a tanker train on the bridge's railway line. While a substantial part of the roadway lays partially submerged, Russian president Vladimir Putin is ordering a commission to investigate the explosion and Russia's deputy prime minister visited the site on Saturday to see the damage firsthand. He was seen discussing repair plans with workers. Putin also ordering tighter security for the bridge and for the infrastructure supplying power to the Crimean Peninsula. Ukraine not claiming direct responsibility for the attack. But in an address, president volodymyr zelensky references the explosion, describing Crimea as cloudy but warm, adding Ukrainians are looking toward a sunnier future without invaders, particularly in Crimea. He also said, quote, if the occupiers flee while they have the chance, that will be their best option.

"Would collapsed into the kerch strait. And there was a fireball that consumed a train that was on the railway adjacent to that. As to what caused that? Well, western military experts that I've spoken to say they believe that this was a very well executed sabotage operation which they assume was launched in some way by Ukrainian special forces. If that is the case, it was an astonishingly audacious attack, probably one of the more stunning efforts by the Ukrainian military since the war began if you bear in mind just how far this is from Ukrainian held territory. The Russians are saying that this was a truck bomb and interestingly an adviser to the Ukrainian president this evening sort of seemed to endorse that theory and said that it pointed to signs of divisions and Discord and dissent within Russia's security establishment. That is a possible theory, although I think it is also possible that the presidential adviser was deliberately being provocative. We won't know probably for sure for some time, maybe not forever. But it does, I would say, look like a very audacious attack by the Ukrainians. Now the Russians are saying that the bridge has partially reopened, give us a sense of how important this is. First of all, strategically, but also symbolically. Strategically, this is an absolutely vital link from Russia into the Crimean Peninsula, and then on up into Russian occupied parts of southern Ukraine. It has been used to supply heavy armor, fuel, ammunition, all the sorts of things that Moscow needs to keep its effort in southern Ukraine going. Symbolically, also hugely important, both for Moscow. This was a prestige project backed by president Putin opened by president Putin in 2018, all designed to show that Crimea and Russia were once again linked for eternity. Demolishing it or damaging it also for the Ukrainians seen as incredibly symbolic for if you like the reverse reasons, a severing of those ties. And a way for Kyiv to say Crimea is ours, and we are going to take it back. And that's the BBC's correspondent in Kyiv, Paul Adams. Well, let's get some reaction now first in Russia, where the incident has caused shock. This is how people reacted on the streets of St. Petersburg. It's really very worrying. I watched the television all the time. It's all so awful. Putin needs to respond. They gave him such a present for his birthday. They were well prepared. I think we should blow up the train lines they used to get their aid from America. NATO does all this. That's the reaction in St. Petersburg. Well, let's go to Ukraine now and speak to Alexei goncharenko, who's a Ukrainian MP and he joins me live from edessa. Thank you very much for joining us on NewsHour. First question did Ukraine do this? It's hard to say who did this, but it's absolutely clear that it is Ukrainian victory and big Ukrainian victory and very severe and hard loss for Russia. And the Russians are saying that the bridge has already partially reopened what's your assessment of the damage. Yes, the breach is not destroyed by damaged, but the image of Putin is destroyed. That is the most important image which he built for decades of a strong leader, leader who can defend anything and who can attack anything. And he was saying that these breach is untouchable that it is defended from underwater from the space from all around and nobody can attack it that is the most strategic object. And now it was attacked and damaged and it shows that it can be again attacked and damaged and that is very significant. Do you believe it was attacked by Ukrainian special forces operating behind an enemy lines? It's absolutely possible, but once again, I'm not a spokesperson to say, but I just want to remind you that besides psychological effect and the fact of linking Crimea to Russia, it's also a huge military significance of course. By this breach, especially by railway, there was a supply for Russian forces which are operating in the south and part of Ukraine, where now there are heavy fightings and Ukrainian forces have a lot of success coming closer to city of sun. So it is also important for militarily point of view. At the same time, you must fear a response from Russia. We are not afraid of Russia anymore after February 24. So they are doing everything they can to kill us and to destroy us their commute and genocide against Ukrainians on occupied territories and not only. So we are not afraid of their possible attacks and the only language that Putin understands is the language of strength and force. And how important is it for Ukraine that you press your recent gains in the next few weeks before the winter sets in? It's very important. And it's not just about winter coming. I in general think that today you have a unique window of opportunity before this newly mobilized Russian troops would arrive to the front line.

In other news, Russia will formally annex four regions of occupied Ukraine during a ceremony in Moscow tomorrow. This after residents in those regions supposedly approved Russia managed referendums on annexation. And the international community as well as Ukraine are not accepting the results of that so called vote. WTO national security correspondent JJ green has more on Russia's claims and missteps. The Russian government is moving ahead with this ceremony and claims that it will use nuclear weapons to protect its so called ownership of these territories, both the threats from Russian officials have not deterred a sweeping Ukrainian counteroffensive that's continuing to push back Russian troops in the east end. It's edging ever closer in the donets region to the city of Lyman. That's Moscow's central force or central base where forces, they've been battering it for a while trying to fully capture that area.

He said that late yesterday, the four territories cursed on Zappos region the south Donetsk and Luhansk and the east. They create a crucial land corridor between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula.

"Protection from the virus. Powerful explosions of rock to Russian air base and Crimea at least one person is dead several others wounded. Now Russia's defense ministry says some munitions blew up at the base and the installation was not shelled, but there's a lot of speculation on Ukrainian social networks, the base was hit by Ukrainian fired long-range missiles. If the base was in fact struck by the Ukrainians, it would mark the first known major attack on a Russian military site on the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed by the Kremlin back in 2014. This is another blow to Russia's war effort inside Ukraine, but WTO national security correspondent JJ green reports, even though Russia's running into trouble, it is not giving up.

"If they steal mobile phones from Ukrainian citizens and connect to Ukrainian telecommunication networks. He said, we know about these cases, but they are hard to track. And of course, he's putting the best face on it possible. In other words, yes, of course, Russians are taking civilian handsets and using them for their own purposes. So anyway, he said, if the Russians managed to seize our fixed Internet infrastructure, we block the equipment. So they can't use it. During the war, all Ukrainian Internet providers are working closely with our military and intelligence services to avoid such incidents. He said, no, that there's also a very reasonable theory that Russians need Ukrainian Internet services for their own purposes, either communication or intelligence gathering like eavesdropping on phone calls. And interestingly, to secure his own conversation with Ukrainians allies, the Ukrainian president zelensky uses a secure sat phone that the U.S. gave the Ukrainian government a month before the invasion. So they were ready and he has a secure means of communicating with allies. So Ukrainian officials also said that Russia's own cellular handsets and networking equipment do not work properly in Ukraine, encouraging its soldiers to therefore steal mobile phones from ordinary Ukrainians. It's also possible that Russia is trying to avoid ruining the telecommunications infrastructure that it hopes it would need and be able to use if it manages to take the country, although anyone who's been keeping up with the news knows that the possibility of that happening is dwindling now by the day. It was noted that when Russian troops destroyed several three G cell towers in kharkiv, they could no longer use their own encrypted phones that communicate via that network. Whoops. And it turns out that rebuilding infrastructure from scratch is difficult. When Russia had illegally annexed the Crimean Peninsula in 2014, the Kremlin needed about three years to regain full control of that region's mobile infrastructure. So it makes sense that they would be preserving it if they think that they'll be needing it shortly. They probably learned some hard lessons from Crimea. The record asks, how accessible is you are is UK or telecoms Internet in Ukraine now. And the CTO said as a march 21st or 25th, rather. UK telecoms, Internet coverage, stayed up to 84% of pre war levels. He said major disruptions happen in the occupied territories where there's no electricity or where the Internet infrastructure, including fiber optic underground cables, were damaged during the attacks. He said, our workers make heroic efforts to provide Internet access even in besieged cities. They go to the front line a few times a day, while some of them live in their cars because they have to work around the clock. We know what it's like to provide Internet during a war. He said, we learned it in 2014. So we try to protect our workers from unnecessary danger. Oh, and he said, also, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we learned to.

"That was controlled by the protesters and from the other building across the way, whatever. And they essentially drove the crowd into a frenzy, and then the EU, working for the Americans, brokered this deal with Yanukovych that he would have to agree to hold new elections. I think in March or may, I can't remember which, but he would have to hold elections very soon. And he would pull his police back because they were accused of doing all the sniping. He would have to pull his police back, but then they promised they would end the protest. Well, he pulled his police back, agreed to the new elections, pulled his police back, and then the mob just took over and drove him out of power. And the new government that they installed immediately, the first thing they did was try to outlaw Russian as a second language. And then three former presidents signed a letter, open letter demanding that now is our chance to kick the Russians out of the Sevastopol naval base. Except the sevestopol naval base on the Crimean Peninsula had belonged to the Russian Black Sea fleet since the days of Catherine the Great. The Russians had stolen if you want to be mean about it. The Crimean Peninsula from the Turkic Tatars in 1783, the same year the Benjamin Franklin and John Adams signed the treaty with the British ending the Revolutionary War. Four years before the U.S. Constitution was ever even written. Okay, that's how long the Russians control owned the Crimean Peninsula. Then in 54, after Stalin died, khrushchev gave it to the Ukrainians because he needed their support to take power in the Kremlin. And so, but it was still like a super majority ethnically Russian area. Now, after the end of the Soviet Union, when all the republics were set free, they made a deal that said, Ukraine can keep the Crimean Peninsula, just let us keep our naval base there. And they've had votes and referendums over the years too, about wanting to join with Russia. But we're always ignored. But then, when the new coup hunter took over and threatened to kick them out of the base, Putin said yet, forget it, and told his sailors and marines to go outside. That was what the French called coup de main, not like a coup d'etat who domain is like one swift victorious battle. And end of the war all at once. In this case, there wasn't even a battle. A total of 6 people were killed, it's not even clear any of them were killed by Russian soldiers or marines or sailors at all. They just essentially went outside and stood on street corners. And there's absolutely like the most minimal violence and they just took over the area. And they held a plebiscite and the people voted to join the Russian Federation, then the German polling firms came in and verified those numbers. They had super duper majority support for joining the Russian Federation at that time that Russia annexed it. Now, is that pretty? Is that according to the UN charter? Is that beautiful? No. Are we sad about the 6 people that died?.

I can't betray you and dissolve Belarus even into brotherly Russia. If I agree to US Belarussians would eat me alive within a year. It might be tempting to interpret this.

European wines has been boosted by good wine Ukraine's leading importer of international points. The CEO Dmitry Crimsky explains explains historically people in Ukraine drink a lot of sweet or semi sweet wines which of course are not very healthy in my point of view you and it's difficult to drink them with food which in my opinion and should be drink. The tendency which we see today is that year after year the the consumption of these sweet semi sweet wines dramatically goes down and the consumption off the dry wines are going up and I believe this trend will continue senior and also in ten years.
