The war in Ukraine is set to slow this winter, according to U.S. intelligence
"The head of U.S. intelligence believes the future for Ukrainian forces is bright as Russian offensive slows down. U.S. Intel chief Avril Haines says that Russia's war in Ukraine is running out of reduced tempo, alluding to past allegations that Russian president Vladimir Putin's advisers could be shielding him from the truth about war developments, Haines says it's not clear that Putin has a full picture at this stage of just how challenge they are, as both sides will look to refit and resupply for a possible Ukrainian counter offensive in the spring, Haines says they have a fair amount of skepticism as to whether or not the Russians will in fact be prepared to do that.

Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Lisa Matteo. This is Bloomberg, David. Thank you so much, Lisa. Well, you really, if you follow Bloomberg at all, know that there's a lot of turmoil going on in the markets. In large part, because of the increased interest rates, certainly the United States, but around the world. At the same time, we have some questions about liquidity in the marketplace when it comes to treasuries. Welcome to somebody who deals with the markets and their functioning every single day. He's Brian Corbett. President of the managed funds association, that represents the alternative asset management industry around the world, not just the United States. So welcome, it's great to have you here. Thank you, David. Appreciate it. So give us your sense about how the markets are functioning right now because there's a lot of concern about that. It was exacerbated by what happened in the UK actually with the guilds. But how are the markets functioning from your point of view right now? Well, right now, the industry is facing a historical amount of rulemaking from the SEC. That's compliment. Excuse me, complicating the market situation. So far, chair gensler has put out a very aggressive rule making agenda of over 18 rules that affect all elements of an asset manager's business. It affects their ability to build their book, how they negotiate with their LPs and investors. And lastly, their day to today operations. And when you step back and look at all of this activity, what we're concerned about are, how do all of these new rules over 18 of them to date more coming? How do they work together? What are the unintended consequences? And is you're raising, what are the concerns that these rules raise at a very volatile market environment? So let's talk about those rules. First of all, are they actually going to see the light of day? Because the SEC chair has been talking about these rules for a long time. We've had him on action and said, where are they? You predict they're going to be here. They don't seem to be coming down the pike. Are we actually going to see them or some version of them? I think we will. I think there's a defined process for putting out rules for comment and then soliciting comment and coming out with the final rule. I think share gensler has made it clear that he's going to proceed with his agenda. Even with the changing Congress in the house, I still think he will proceed with his schedule. Well, I was going to ask exactly that question with Republicans in the majority with oversight responsibility up on capital. You've spent time up there. Is that going to at least slow him down if not stop him? And at least some of these regulations. So to date, we have seen a bipartisan effort by Republicans and Democrats from House and Senate to encourage him to slow down. Think about the unattended consequences, really understand the rules, how they work together and what they mean for markets. And I would expect with the new House majority being Republican that those oversight actions will continue if not accelerate. While Congress has tools that could slow him down, I do think ultimately he will move forward with the final version of many of these rules. So Brian, you said that he's proposed rules are exacerbating the situation in the marketplace. To some extent, people think that they're being proposed to address some of the problems with the marketplace. And let's talk specifically about transparency, as I understand, going back to 1933 and 1934, the theory about securities regulation is transparency. The investor knows what they have. Transparency, particularly let's talk about the treasury market right now, where there's a lot of concern about liquidity. And a lot of movement has gone over to the hedge funds and things that are not publicly available. Because of some regulation that came out in 2008, is there a legitimate point there that we need more transparency, particularly on leverage in the treasury market. So first off, a lot of information about hedge funds and other market participants is widely available. And it is collected by the regulators. So that information is out there. What chair gensler is proposing to date with respect to the treasury market is one. How do we clear treasuries? And I think there are some viable good proposals for how we move to more of a central clearing operation. But he's also proposed a rule called the dealer rule that we actually think may undermine liquidity and treasury security. Well, how does that work? Because I had heard that the dealer rule would actually facilitate because they'd know exactly who's holding them, what kind of leveraging it. So today, investment managers are in the market, they're executing their strategies. What the SEC is proposing that if a manager trades over a certain level of treasury securities, they have to be registered as a broker dealer. So if you're an investment adviser, you have one set of regulations, you're already registered with the

"World and national news, Nathan. What do you got? Well, this is Bloomberg. Thank you, Paul. Religious rights and gay rights are going head to head today at the Supreme Court, the justices are hearing arguments. In the case of a Colorado graphic artist who says making wedding websites for gay couples would violate her faith, it could also subject her to fines under Colorado law. Kristen Wagner is CEO of the conservative legal group alliance defending freedom. What's at stake is the right of every American to be able to speak messages that are consistent with their conscience and to not face government punishment for declining to speak a message that violates their core convictions. On the other side, opponents say a win for the graphic designer could open the door to more discrimination against interracial and interfaith couples, immigrants and others. Voters in Joe or head to the polls tomorrow in the runoff between democratic senator Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker, but Bloomberg government's Shaq Fitzpatrick reports close to 2 million Georgians have already cast ballots in early voting. These runoffs can be a little strange to determine what how many people come back for a second election. The polling can be a little confusing, but we see really significant numbers in the early vote and that probably skews pretty favorably toward the Democrats. Speak of Jack Fitzpatrick, one GOP consultant sells us the Republican Herschel Walker could still be in this race if in person turnout spikes in rural and exurban, Georgia counties. Ukraine's air force says it shot down more than 60 of 70 Russian missiles that were fired in the latest barrages today.

"Residents of Ukraine's capital have switched into survival mode a day after Russian missile strikes plunge the city in much of the country into the dark, in scenes hard to believe in a city of 3 million people, some key of residents resorted to collecting rainwater from pipes, friends and families scramble to find out who had electricity in who had water, the cafes that had both became oases of comfort for many resident Alexi COFF pace of calmly recounted how he was in the subway at the moment of the strikes.

"Higher prices and long delays, they say they just don't have any at all. Inflation kept climbing. And then Russian president Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine and gas prices spiked. The president and his team continued to blame a combination of culprits. The inflation has everything to do with the supply chain. You want to bring down inflation? Let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. Today's inflation report confirmed what America's already know. Putin's price hike is hitting America hard. Biden decided to release an unprecedented amount of oil out of emergency reserves. It was one of the few tools he had to combat gas prices. And he repeatedly told Americans he was trying to do more to fight inflation. My top priority is getting prices under control. But in June, inflation hit another record. And shortly after, Democrats passed a massive bill to curb climate change and lower healthcare costs. They called it the inflation reduction act, and it's something they have been trying to campaign on. Democrats are lowering your everyday costs like prescription drugs, healthcare, premiums, energy bills, and gas prices. Okay, some people cheering their asthma, but how are voters broadly taking The White House efforts to adapt here? You know, Steve, I've been talking to voters about inflation since prices started rising last year. I went to different states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Florida. And in the beginning, there was a sense that The White House was perhaps slow to acknowledge people's pain. But the more that prices increased, I will say the more we saw how politicized this issue became, The White House is confident that it's done everything it can and things are beginning to move in the right direction. I spoke with one of Biden's top economic advisers Jared Bernstein, and I will say Steve, you know, this White House message does seem to resonate with some people at least some Democrats back in Georgia I met Alyssa Morris and Pablo zecharias. They say everything does feel super expensive between groceries for their kids and lumber prices for his construction company, but they say the president is trying. It feels like he did the best he could. Yes, like every president has their thing. Yes. So I feel like he's doing the most that he can to make things better. Well, what is Biden's closing argument on this? The president has pointed out that inflation is currently not getting worse and gas prices have come down, and his final message is essentially that the cost of living will go up if Republicans take over Congress. They take control or said the first aim is to get rid of the inflation reduction act and inflation is going to go up, not down. And so if he is trying to cast this election is a choice rather than a referendum on his own performance, the challenge for Democrats, though, is that they are the party in power. And so whether or not Biden is actually responsible for rising prices, he and his party often bear the consequences of people's frustrations. Back in Georgia again, I met Dale Jordan, he describes himself as a fiscal conservative, he didn't like the Republican, couldn't get himself to vote for the Democrat either. So he voted third party. He blames democratic policies for his high bills. You can not keep printing money. Just like in business, you can't keep throwing money at something. Democrats keep talking about this inflation reduction act. I've read parts of it as a joke. Anything it does will take ten years for you to see anything. You know, from my interviews, it is clear that Republicans are angry about the economy. The White House is trying to counter that pessimistic view and I will say in these final days, we're actually hearing both parties try to use fears about the economy to drive voter turnout. Pleasure to hear from you. Oh, it's a pleasure. Both men and women suffer concussions in sports, yet the overwhelming majority of studies about concussions focus only on men. Researchers are meeting this week to consider what they don't know and how to learn it. Here's NPR's Becky Sullivan. Lindsey Simpson was just 16 when she got her first concussion playing soccer. She was a promising high school goalkeeper who wasn't afraid to be bold in her games. I dove for the ball and my body hit funny and I slammed the back of my head on the ground, which you train very well not to do that, but mistakes happen. Her symptoms were so bad, she had to take 9 months off, but still she was recruited by the university of Maryland, then she got her second concussion, a third, a fourth, and finally one that ended her playing career. Now, at 36 years old, Simpson still has questions about the concussions that have altered the course of her life. You know, that's the $1 million question to me is why. Why did I get that impact and it affected me that way and you watch someone take a hit every Sunday on TV? And they're fine. Questions like hers have dogged researchers too. Studies suggest that men and women are different when it comes to head impacts, women and girls might be more susceptible to concussions in the first place and might need longer to recover. But the concussion protocols used by teams and schools and doctors worldwide are largely based on studies of men. This doctor that's treating an NFL player on the sideline is using the same statements and guidelines that pediatrician is using to treat a 14 year old soccer player that's a female. This is Julian Schmidt. She's a concussion researcher at the university of Georgia. She and some colleagues looked at the official recommendations made by three influential medical organizations, including the international conference on concussion in sport, which is the one meeting this week. The startling part was just how male it was. 80% of the participants in the studies behind these recommendations were male. Only 20% were female. And many of the underlying studies had no female participants at all. Putting a number to that really made it very clear that this is a huge imbalance and it's going to take a lot of work to bring it back into balance. The problem is that concussion research used to focus on American football, which is mostly played by men. Now, studies are better about looking at women and girls too. And scientists are learning more about why women respond differently. But there are still so many questions, says doctor Christina Lynn master, a pediatrician and concussion specialist at the children's hospital of Philadelphia, like why are women more likely to report symptoms than men? Is that because they have a more severe injury and have more symptoms or is there something about gender behavior where they are reporting more symptoms or more likely to disclose as opposed to hide symptoms? There could be biological reasons too, master says women have weaker necks for one, menstrual cycles and hormones could play a role, but what's needed is more research. They both master and Schmidt of the university of Georgia. They say that's where this week's international conference can come in. There, a group of experts will issue an updated consensus statement, which they say

"The Annie E, Casey foundation. From NPR news, this is all things considered. I'm wanna summers. And I'm Ari Shapiro. Ever since the war in Ukraine began the west has been trying to consolidate opposition to Russia. Well, today Russian president Vladimir Putin worked to Marshall his own base of international support. In Tehran, he met with the presidents of Iran and turkey. These are countries that don't always align with Russia or with each other. Former U.S. ambassador to Russia, Michael mcfaul joins us to parse the diplomacy good to have you back. Thanks for having me. It seems like most of the public statements coming out of these meetings focus on Syria, not Ukraine. So how central do you think Ukraine was to Putin deciding to make this trip to Iran? Well, formally, the three countries were meeting because they have for several years to try to manage the crisis, the war in Syria, not very effectively, but they do that from time to time. So that's the reason why they're meeting. But I think the big issue on the table, of course, would Ukraine. And in two ways, it's very striking on the one hand Putin is getting military assistance from Iran. That's the reverse of what it usually is. And on the other hand, he's meeting with mister Erdoğan, the head of turkey, who on the one hand is talking to Putin about issues related to Ukraine. And on the other hand, is providing military assistance to Ukraine at the same time. Yeah, I mean, yeah, given that turkey is a member of NATO, what are we to make of president Erdoğan's involvement in these meetings? It's very complicated because on the one hand he is a member of NATO. He is providing very effective drones to the Ukrainian military. On the other hand, he's not supporting sanctions. And he's talking directly to mister Putin, I just saw their press spray and they sound very cordial. And he is trying to play a mediating role, particularly with respect to the export of Ukrainian grain and Russian grain to the outside world. And maybe we don't know for sure, but they may have achieved a breakthrough on that front. Do you think it's coincidence that Putin visited Iran just after Biden went to Saudi Arabia? Not a coincidence. I mean, very striking. I mean, it's only the second trip abroad since the war, let me rephrase that since his invasion of Ukraine began on February 24th. We should remember he invaded Ukraine. It wasn't just the Russia Ukrainian war. But I think coming in the wake of President Biden's visit and shoring up our relationship with our partners in the Middle East, Putin is now doing the same. It reminds me a bit of the Cold War. East versus west, the NATO block, the European block, the democratic bloc in Europe, is stronger and tighter than ever before. But you also see Putin strengthening his relationships with China and Iran on this trip with a couple countries like turkey in between. The NATO alliance has been a clear, strong, stable alliance for a long time, with some changes around the edges. How new is this kind of Russia, Iran, China access that is forming. Well, first NATO has been around for a long time, but Putin has done a ton to strengthen it since he invaded Ukraine. Two new members, more solidarity than ever before. And as a result of that, he is seeking deeper ties with countries like China and Iran. That trica of autocracies has been together for a long time. They've done military exercises, but as a result of this war, I see things coalescing to a much greater degree. The liberal democracies on the one hand and these dictatorships on the other. There's a big economic piece of this puzzle as the west put sanctions on Russia, Russia, and Iran are both oil producing countries. How do the western sanctions affect the dynamics here? Well, now you have Iran and Russia both being the most sanctioned countries by western democracies in the world. They share military ties together that have gotten deeper since Putin's invasion of Ukraine. And that the idea that Iran will send drones armed drones to Russia deepens out alliance and bilateral way back and forth way. It used to be that Russia just gave Iran arms now that Iran is giving Russia arms. That's a new dimension. But the big play here is between Russia and China. As Russia faces increased sanctions on all dimensions of its economic relations with Europe, you've already seen it closer ties to China and my prediction is that that is going to grow over the years where you're really de facto going to see two economic blocks with Russia closely tied to China and virtually cut off from Europe and the United States. That's former U.S. ambassador to Russia. Michael mcfaul, he's now a Stanford University. Thanks so much for your time. Thanks for having me.

He first saw it as a senator, about 50 years ago. Over the course of those many years, he's witnessed a few different eras of Mideast history and as Biden arrives his advisers say a new one is beginning. NPR White House correspondent as Muhammad is in Jerusalem. Hey there asthma. Hi there, Steve. So what is different about this period in history than some past ones? Well, you know, Steve, The White House is trying to make the case that the U.S. role in the region has actually changed rather dramatically specifically in the last 20 years with the end of the Iraq War now and the U.S. Military presence significantly smaller than it once was in the area. And you know, really the goal I will say of this trip is to keep the situation relatively stable. The foreign policy priorities of this White House are really focused elsewhere. It sees China as the overarching force to be reckoned with, but you know, Steve, even though I say that, I should point out that there are expectations that Russian president Vladimir Putin is making plans to visit Iran and Biden is no doubt concerned about other countries trying to expand their influence in the region. And you know, he's also concerned about spillover effects from Russia's war in Ukraine. Oh my goodness, there are questions like, for example, will Saudi Arabia a big economy help in isolating Russia or not. So far they generally have not. And then there's the matter of how the war in Ukraine has affected oil prices and oil production is Biden getting any help from Persian Gulf oil producers. You know, The White House is acknowledging that energy security is certainly on the agenda for this trip, the president will be meeting with leaders from Saudi Arabia, the UAE Qatar, all members of OPEC and for months officials have been quietly trying to make the case to these partners to increase their supply of oil. The White House notes that there has been some increases now and they would certainly welcome more, but I should point out Steve that every analyst that I have spoken to has extremely low expectations that this trip is going to fix the price pressures Americans have been feeling at the pump at least in the short term. You know, I think it's also important though to mention another impact of the war in Ukraine is a global grain supplies, Middle Eastern importers have been hit hard by the cut to exports of wheat and sunflower oil, and that's one thing on the agenda here in Jerusalem. Tomorrow, President Biden and the prime minister of Israel will meet virtually with leaders from the UAE and India to talk about food security issues. Let's zoom in to where you are, Jerusalem, an area with its own conflicts to say the least, what is the president doing and saying regarding that? Well, he's going to underscore the fact that the U.S. continues to be deeply invested in Israel's security. In fact, shortly after he arrives today, he'll receive a briefing on Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, which the U.S. has helped supply. He'll also go though to the West Bank on this trip and meet with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, there will be some sort of announcement of support for the Palestinian people. And I do expect that President Biden will speak in broad terms about his long-standing support for a two state solution, but really the politics on the ground here do not support that sort of compromise right now. And then he gets on a plane and he flies to Saudi Arabia. That's right. And Biden will meet with the Saudi royal family, including The Crown prince, who U.S. intelligence says approved of the operation to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. And Steve, we don't know much yet about what that encounter will look like, but will all be, I think, certainly watching to see what kind of enduring image comes from that meeting. And how or what President Biden will do to acknowledge the concerns from human rights groups who have been seeking accountability for what happened. And how it is in Jerusalem must be safe travels. Thank you, Steve. A video out of Yuval di Texas is graphic in a way, graphic in what it does not show. It shows police doing absolutely nothing. It's security video, from inside the school on the day of the mass shooting there. It shows every minute of police standing around while a gunman controlled a nearby classroom that was full of children. The Austin American statesman obtained the video. And bears Adrian Florida has been watching that video. He's been covering the shooting and you've all for some time. Good morning. Good morning, Steve. What's the video show? Well, Steve, I think it's important to note what it doesn't show. We don't see in this video is victims. This is mostly video from the security camera inside that school hallway along with some video from outside the school. And so what we see is the gunman entering through a side door and then walking down that school hallway to a classroom door and shooting at it before disappearing inside. And at that point, we just hear gunfire coming from inside the classroom for several minutes. The Austin American statesman which obtained this video edited out audio of children at screaming before publishing it. We also see within about three minutes the first police officers arriving and approaching that classroom door, but then running to take cover as the gunman shoots through the door. And then really, Steve, the next hour or so, we just see more police officers showing up pointing their guns toward the classroom, gathering equipment, walking back and forth for more than an hour before they finally do storm that classroom. And of course, we've heard many times since then that normal police procedure would be to storm the classroom immediately. How does the video change your understanding of what happened or didn't happen? You know, there's no huge new revelations in this video because a lot of what we know happened has been reported before this video was released yesterday. But it is the first visual evidence we have of the bungled police response, essentially in its entirety. And it's hard to watch because this delay goes on for so long, while we know that there were children calling 9-1-1 inside that classroom, a teacher bleeding to death, ultimately she did bleed to death. And as this video goes on as these police officers check their phones, apply hand sanitizer, it really drives home how much more could have been done much sooner to kill the gunman and possibly save some of those victims. How are people responding? I'm hearing mixed reaction last night I spoke with a man who was standing on the side of the road, carrying a sign that said in part that you validity police are cowards. This man had his face covered and he asked me not to use his name because it's a small town and he fears police retaliation. But here's what he said. Since the beginning of this, they've said they did everything they

"Weaponizing the world economy at Baxter has global news from the 9 60 newsroom in San Francisco. Yeah, Brian, these are pretty heavy duty comments. She's saying the sanctions are making it very hard on emerging nations. Bloomberg and marlowe says she says the sanctions are creating regional blocks that could lead to war. But they're also sort of backing up the Russian messaging about the global food and energy crisis at the moment kind of suggesting that this isn't a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, but is in fact a result of the coordinated sanctions from the west against Russia that have snarled supply chains and mixed up and caused a global energy prices to spike. Now the summit gives she and a Russian president Vladimir Putin a platform to expound on their world economic vision caught in the middle is India. Meanwhile, president Putin says trade with India and China has strengthened a Midwestern oil sanctions. He says the growth is noticeable and says Russian oil producers are sending more crude to Asian buyers. Meanwhile, the U.S. president Joe Biden is asking Congress to put a gas tax holiday in effect for 90 days. With the tax revenues up this year and our deficit down over $1.6 trillion this year alone will still be able to fix our highways and bring down prices of gas. We can do both at the same time. Is that states need to help consumers as well and as energy secretary Jennifer Granholm says the energy companies need to stop gouging speaking directly to the companies. This is the time to reinvest those profits that will enable them to better meet the needs of our citizens. And instead of using it for shareholders or stock buybacks. She says, oil prices have dropped $10 a barrel in the past couple of weeks, and she says, usually when that happens, you see a 25 cent drop at the pump per gallon. She says that has not happened. Health officials in Shenzhen say they are going to require a PCR COVID test for people entering a public venue. Leaders of the European Union are planning to grant candidacy status to Ukraine. That according to a draft statement obtained by Bloomberg, it will be a large symbolic victory for Ukraine as it battles for its survival. In the Chinese military analyst has floated the idea of hacking Elon Musk's Starlink service, it provides Internet access to the service does in more than 30 countries, but in a paper published by the Beijing institute for tracking and research, says the Chinese military should track and monitor every satellite in the network and be ready to disable any that pose a threat. In San Francisco, I met Baxter. This is Bloomberg, right back to Hong Kong, Brian. Eduardo, thank you very much. 8 minutes here past the owl, let's get to our guest. Arno van Ryan, Asia Pacific CIO at Rebecca. Good morning. Yeah, thanks very much for joining us here in studio. We've had this discussion, I think, with commentators and even with our own reporters on whether or not the fed might crack at some point on its tough fight against inflation are no. And oftentimes people say, well, you know, equity prices, risk assets can fall in the fed will not crack. But I don't think that's the right question. I think the question should be more, how will the fed react when we see growth falling pretty rapidly and unemployment rising? Pretty rapidly. Do you think the fed can stay on inflation or will it crack? Yeah, that's exactly right. When growth falters, that is what they want to achieve, they want to create some demand destruction hopefully not too much, which is why we talk all about potential for recession. So once the fed sees that, indeed, there's enough demand destruction to make inflation be tamed or at least full dramatically, then they might back off. But clearly, and there is no longer a question of a fed put, right? That's definitely out of the window now is no longer about equity investors being supported by macroeconomic and monetary policies. You say, though, that there is less fluff in Asia and Leicester fear from these right hacks, so tell us why you're expecting some more outperformers here across the Asia Pacific. Yes, this is very much got to do with the response to COVID that we've seen in the U.S. and also in Europe with massive monetary expansion, a lot of money printing going on, which is not what we've seen in most Asian markets Therefore, now that we are seeing basically demand pull inflation in the U.S. and Europe, you don't see much of that in Asia demand still relatively tame and it's more that just cost push inflation from commodity prices that we are also witnessing in Asia as we're all oil importers. But that means that underlying Asian central banks don't need to do that much and of course the most tropical one there is the bank of Japan in order to bring inflation under control because they don't have too much inflation from the beginning and that's very good exit point. We make an interesting assertion at Bloomberg news today that the property slump in China is a bigger threat than the lockdowns. And basically this is because a lot in GDP is tied to housing construction and sales. Is that going to be an issue for some time to come in China and thus don't bank on China's economy to save the day? I think you're right there. It's also been something that I've been worried about that few people talk about that anymore. Meanwhile, we're still having a buyer strike in properties, essentially, yes, the latest numbers were a bit stronger than before, but it's still a very, very weak demand situation there. Sentiment is very depressed and as much as the government is now trying to make it easier for people to buy properties again, not much people are willing to take the bite to take the bait and therefore it is still an enormous issue because it also undermines consumer sentiment, right? We've seen the numbers coming from ecommerce relatively weak ish, although still okay. But yeah, the sentiment is we also wage

"Dot com schedule your free estimate today Ten ten Hours after issuing a global video statement saying Russia would attack Ukraine the day after tomorrow the Ukrainian president is walking back the prediction tonight He's clarifying he was referring only to media reports One Ukrainian diplomat told WTO's JJ green the president was being ironic regardless of why it happened the first statement spooked the markets it led to widespread headlines and media reports Politico senior foreign affairs correspondent and the joined us here on WTO earlier tonight to discuss what may have been on the Ukrainian president's mind I think he probably was thinking in a way keep the country unified But he probably just wasn't doing the right thing and not being very clear that he was referring to media reports and these intelligence reports It's hard to tell I mean he did used to be a comedian So it's a little bit hard to tell exactly if this was about humor or if he was just trying to get a message out there that everyone needs to stick together to unify What are your sources telling you about an invasion There is still a belief that Russia could move in at any time But there were some good signals today from the Kremlin The Russian president Vladimir Putin held this very highly choreographed meeting with his foreign minister Sergei Lavrov And while they complained quite a bit about the normal stuff native expansion that sort of thing they did talk about the importance of keeping diplomacy going And that was a really good sign And so there's some hope that if an invasion happens that maybe it's not going to be this week Joel said me straighten the Holly if I'm focusing on all the little things but the images that came out of that meeting was Sergei Lavrov and Vladimir Putin you had Putin on one end of a table and Lavrov 30 feet away Is there any symbolism or significance or are they just taking COVID measures or what's going on there Food has been doing this long table thing lately with the people he's been meeting with And our understanding is that it's COVID restrictions He seems to be unusually paranoid about the coronavirus What is working and not working among diplomacy efforts from the U.S. and the west There is definitely a sign that the west is united and I think the fact that there are so many western leaders making these frequent statements having so many phone calls going to see Putin or otherwise reach out to him They're really getting across the message that look if you invade Ukraine you're going to pay a very steep price But there's also the lingering uncertainty about how unified the west really is And Russia knows that they know that if they do something say short of a full out invasion maybe just cyberattacks or something like that that maybe that can scramble the west plans about how to react Why would you amass such a large number of forces if you're not at least going to try to skew the parlance here Take a bite out of Ukraine Look honestly you can argue that he has gotten a lot of what he wanted You know he got the world's attention He put a brief hold on the pivot to China that the U.S. wants to make He has made NATO expansion a topic of discussion And a lot of people in the U.S. are now questioning why we would even let it Ukraine to NATO So I mean these are things that he has managed to sew and they could bear some fruit in the long run for him Did you happen to hear that BBC interview It would have happened just a little bit after the Super Bowl ended with a Ukrainian leader who actually talked about maybe we need to set back our goals in our motivations for NATO membership I believe they've since walked that back but that seemed to be another point to the case you're making that maybe Putin is making some headway here Yeah I mean that thing is the guy had to walk it back because joining NATO as part of Ukraine's constitution But the fact that he put it out there the fact that everyone has made it clear that if Ukraine is going to join NATO it's not going to be any time soon I mean we're talking decades away I think that's the type of thing that will put Putin's mind at ease but it's not going to happen while he's still running Russia Political senior foreign affairs correspondent in the hutus will tell you how the wizards did tonight against the pistons men's college basketball and more with rob coming up USAA insurance is made for the safe pilots Like sergeant Hayden when her hands are on the wheel her phone is in her purse so don't bother calling You're going straight to voicemail And because she has the USA.

"Informed 24/7 360 five Pressure is mounting against Russian president Vladimir Putin who appears ready to invade Ukraine But that pressure is not just coming from the U.S. and Europe Nope there's WTO he's national security correspondent JJ green tells us this early hour It's also coming from within his own military An influential retired Russian general is warning Putin not to invade Ukraine and accused him of a criminal policy of provoking a war That general has retired general leonidov and he's the head of the all Russian officers assembly and his open letter is a really really big deal in this sense because he's the most prominent example to date of an influential person especially inside of the Russian military that's been willing to speak out about this morning Putin not to invade Russia Now there are those who are saying this is a trick This is a Russian trick essentially a scion trick designed to make the west think that Russia is full of diverse people and they can speak and say whatever they want to do But the truth of the matter here is that regardless of what this is all about it sends a message to the west that there are those inside of Russia that agree with the west and most likely will send some kind of signal of strength to the west saying you're on the right track here Now we've been hearing a lot about the troop buildup around Ukraine's border but what is the situation on the ground inside the country How are average Ukrainians preparing for all this Well I've been talking to a couple of people who are on the ground one of whom is a retired navy cryptologist His name is Malcolm Nance and Malcolm told me a little earlier There are people in Ukraine that are going to restaurants They're going to bars They're doing what they usually do because this is not something foreign to them This is something they've experienced before It's not that they're not paying attention to what's going on but they're not cowering in fear in some corner He says and these are his words that if they come these troops into Kyiv they're going to be people throwing flower pots out of windows and rocks sticks anything they can bottom line he says if Russia does decide to invade Ukraine Russian troops are going to face fierce resistance from people inside Ukraine Now of course the U.S. has sent weapons and forces to Ukraine's neighbors Can you characterize how those countries are feeling about the possibility they might get targeted by Russia Yeah I had a conversation with the head of NATO for Estonia And he is very welcoming very much welcoming the U.S. Air Force resources and troops that have been sent there to help them prepare but he made it very clear NATO and Estonia specifically knows very well being basically the tip of the spear when it comes to being at the front of the Russian aggression Estonia knows very well how they conduct themselves He said they're preparing for every scenario And they're not letting anything essentially go to chance They've been the victim of a Russian attack before in 2007 that started with a massive cyberattack And they understand that this kind of cooperation from NATO whether it's small or little it's very important to all of these neighbors Are Ukraine's neighbors whether they're in NATO or not that are opposed to what Russia's doing He says they're very grateful for what they've gotten They recognize as well that this.
