while aware we are in the tans administration building a prime target for the russians. iraq, the summer usa, me personally, i'm exhausted. i sleep on the floor because of the rule of 2 walls in my family to they are not in a city. they are living in a school, but the main think they are and will be living. it's easier for me to worry only about myself than to worry about my family. and still, the war rages. smoke rises up from the artillery battle, taking place behind me, a critical battle for solid dotted place. if the russians munched, take that time along with the hills surrounding it, coupled with the advances that making fun of the front, so that all this area was full into russian hands, including the town. i said make algebra, but he thought well, joining me now from nashville, tennessee, as michael newton, he's a professor of law and political science at vanderbilt university. michael,
2:08 am
good, happy with her. so we're now seeing russia reenergize, it's military offensive in the dumbass, but, but does russia have enough military assets in the right places to maintain dis momentum in these given the, the poor, logistical support and low morale. it's plagued its invasion so far. well, we'll see. i mean, the reality is that they're able to shift some forces away from area bowl, but by the same token, ukrainian defenders are able ship forces away from my desk and away from area poll . the east around the need are a will be the real fight in this war, i believe. yeah, and you as president joe biden has just signed another $40000000000.00 aid package for ukraine, that's on top of the $13600000000.00 already given the question is mike what, what, what difference is all this western military aid making on the ground? if any was making significant differences today. the challenge, of course, is getting it in through the chunk point from the west of the western ukraine and
2:09 am
from to the cave region. but getting it to the fighters hands where it really needs to be. and i think that will be one of the critical things to watch over the next week for 2 weeks for 10 days. if, if in fact the ukrainians can keep up pressure on russian supply lines, it will bode well. the russians, on the other hand, are attending the mass forces and surround ukrainian forces in the east. and the great problem here is if you did generate into stagnant warfare, stagnant in the east, which is you, we, we've seen that in the past in that region. the russians want to break that cycle now. yeah, and up michael, you mentioned mary paul, just the in the last few days we've seen ukrainian forces surrender in matter you poll. so what does this mean strategically for ukraine? if russia cuts off its access to the sea of, as of, and potentially further south the black sea. well, the bigger thing to me right now is the impact on world hunger world. we exports
2:10 am
the entire world will suffer as a result of cutting off those exports. any intentional destruction of russian grains doors. setting that aside just in pure military terms, it gives the russians a deep water port which makes them closer and more able to project combat power and resupply the ocean routes. but, but by the same token, and they all have to leave significant forces in marion poll because of all war and the law of occupation requires them to maintain public order and safety. and that's going to be the challenge for them. i believe going forward. they've secured it in the short term, but that's very different than the long term. and i do think you'll see what, what few civilians are there. you'll still see a recurring resistance there. that was slow down, rush in efforts, as well as other parts of eastern ukraine. michael newton, really good to get your thoughts. thank you very much. indeed for talking to 0.
