tv   KRON 4 News at 10  KRON  May 5, 2022 10:00pm-11:01pm PDT

10:00 pm
>> when fun time from the bay area's local news station. you're watching kron. 4 news. >> and thank you for joining us here on kron. 4 news at 10. i'm pam moore and i'm ken wayne, a new report. tonight's jess united states may be playing a bigger role in the war in ukraine than previously thought. the new york times is reporting tonight that intelligence provided by the u.s. helped ukrainian forces located and strike russia's black sea flagship the sinking of the last month was an embarrassing blow to vladimir putins troubled invasion of ukraine. 2 senior american officials told the times ukraine already had obtained the mosque was tmrgeting data on its own and that the u.s. provided only confirmation of
10:01 pm
that. but other officials said the american intelligence was crucial. 2 ukraines sinking of that warship. for more on this report and the latest on the war in ukraine, we're joined by bay area congressman john garamendi. the congressman is a senior member of the armed services committee and chair of the armed services subcommittee on readiness. thank you for being with us again to talk about what's happening in ukraine. congressman, let's start with the new york times report about the sinking of that russian ship. >> and also whether or not infect the u.s. role is expanding in the war. >> but the united states from the very outset of this entire situation has provided significant intelligence to ukraine prior to the invasion itself. united states knew exactly what the russian a buildup was, where the troops were and wheresthey were going. all of that was shared with ukrainian government way back at the beginning. and we've continued to the right significant intelligence
10:02 pm
information throughout the course of the war. this is no secret. it's a very, very important part of the american. i support for ukraine. it has a very negative effect on rushed. >> the times also said that the u.s. intelligence officials were wary of letting many people know about the involvement of american intelligence in assisting ukrainians because russia could see that as too much involvement by the united states and ratchet up their threats against our country. what do you make of that? >> certainly russia doesn't like it. there's no doubt that this is a serious problem to russia because the russian military has been all right. it's a his last the keep battle. and it's also being very slow and being able to make any progress in the east river. john region and intelligence is a key part of every military operation. is that fundamental? no. what's fundamental is the desire and
10:03 pm
the strength and the courage of the ukrainian army. the intelligence is a vital piece, but it is not the deciding factor. the deciding factors the will to fight and the desire to win which russia seems not to have at least a strong as the ukraine's also the united states is providing weapons as our nato countries. there's a very significant about of all kinds of weapons going into ukraine, including some very advanced artillery, a counter battery radars and the like all of which our fundamental to the success, the ukrainian government. so russia, yes, doesn't like it. but are they going to do about it? well, we've certainly seen some blessed are about to nuclear weapons. i think pressure knows that. that's where they cannot go. congress cannot go there. if they were to go that way, they'd be a whole different matter.
10:04 pm
>> well, i would live. well, we're talking about the nuclear possibility. what what would that mean? >> well, we may nuclear war. probably starting a limited, all of the research has been done on any use of a nuclear war in a situation. so excuse me, nuclear weapons in a situation such as this is that it cannot be contained. it would be one that another back and forth and pretty soon we have it all out. nuclear war. russia knows that. and your next question is where would they use their nuclear weapons in ukraine? well, they really don't need to have a nuclear weapon to destroy cities were saying that they're quite capable of doing that with their their vessels, as well as their artillery. so what's advantage of a nuclear weapon to back down ukraine? i doubt that that would be it to attack nato. they know that they were attacked. nato would be the end of rush. so that's not going to happen. i think it's a lot of bluster right
10:05 pm
now. >> may 9th is a really big day in russia, especially for vitamin pueden. it's a day russia celebrates its victory over the nazis in world war. 2, there's going to be a big military parade in moscow signs are that to vladimir putin has to have something to celebrate on may 9th and up till now he's had very little to celebrate with the russian people. and that's why mariupol, for instance, is getting bombarded so heavily. so that maybe he can claim that as a victory on may 9th. what's your assessment a night and how that figures into the war effort in ukraine. >> well, that's 4 days from now there is no indication that the ukraine for gates that are in mariupol, are going to collapse in the next 4 days. i'm sure food and would like to have some sort of major victory. and i'm quite certain that the ukrainians are are well aware
10:06 pm
of that and they may be provided. they may be working on some surprise on the other side, this question may 9th celebration. it may very well be that the ukrainians are planning their own celebration. we'll see what happens. but i seriously doubt that mariupol will collapse and the next 4 days. >> mister putin may not have the successes that he wants so far, but he certainly is stepped up the attacks on civilian side just relentless in his attacks on civilian locations, where even sites have been marked. the children are in these locations. how do you assess where things stand right now? >> there is no doubt as a war criminal. there's no doubt that he's targeting civilian side is targeted schools and hospitals and doing what russia does so well. and that is to destroy. they did this year and a you know, they get this year all of in syria.
10:07 pm
wherever you see the russian army, you're going to see syria, a city's flat as you're showing that video right now. that's russian way. just simply destroy using artillery. and now with missiles. i just that when a war. as it turned the entire world against beshir, yes, the sun does put prudent as the international pariah. yes, whether it be a long-term consequences for russia doing this, this invasion totally unnecessary and and criminal in every way. so putin, it's going to pay a price now and into the future. the sanctions are ratcheting up every day. current work in europe is that europe will not buy russian gas were used for russian gas. now and russian oil within the next 6 months. so that major market for russia's economy is going to shut down. russia be
10:08 pm
able to sell that oil and other places perhaps? but the international sanctions are getting stronger each and every day, particularly as pueden shows his war. criminality by flattening cities by going after civilians and all of the. terrible atrocities that he is instigating. ukraine. >> the biden administration is committed. 33 billion dollars more to the effort in ukraine. the american people today a largely support what the administration is doing in ukraine. but how long will that continue and how much more money will it take to finish this effort and defeat the russian invasion? >> i think you need to look at the the american history and in the early days of world war. 2, we supported united kingdom. and lend lease
10:09 pm
program. we stayed with that throughout that entire were eventually the united states entered into it. i don't believe the united states will be actively with our troops on the ground. ukraine president said no, and it would take an act of congress for that to happen supporting as we are. those are individual pieces of legislation. there was a 16 billion dollar piece that passed just a couple of months ago. the 33 billion is in addition to that. i think the american public, i understand that this is not just about ukraine. this is about democracy europe. and this is not only thing that couldn't pass in mind if he were to win this war he will quickly move into mode idea. and there's already a russian troops and b, eastern part of that country we know he has his eyes on the the baltic countries, estonia, lithuania, that area. we do know i'm
10:10 pm
well. last week i met with the ambassador from sweden finland and they are very, very nervous. so nervous that for the first time in the 70 years, finn a sweet is pushing aside its neutrality and asking to join. as is chandler. this is a major step for those 2 countries. they know that this war is about them. they know that if crudeness allowed to push forward and win this war, that they're going to be next on the russian agenda. and this is not new defendant. they've had this situation before the night in the late 1930's or early 40's when russia did invade finland, the fans were able to countered. but they lost a lot of territory to russia as result of that this is more than just ukraine, we're out of time. but i just
10:11 pm
want to ask you real quickly about u.s. readiness. we have sent. >> a large a number of javelins and stingers to a stinger missiles to ukraine. and because of the semiconductor shortage, we had a story earlier this week about concerns on how quickly manufacturers can turn out new supplies for for the u.s. to maintain our readiness. what are your concerns in that area? briefly? >> serious, serious concerns. that's my job. chairman of the readiness where that used a moment ago and readiness is many things and that is that we have a satisfactory reserve of military equipment of all kinds, not just new additions, but also the artillery and on and on missiles, javelin missiles and the like we're simply going to have to ramp up one of the problems that we have is the consolidation. the defense industry. many of
10:12 pm
