  • INSIDE A NATO COUNTRY LINKED TO

  • THE WAR IN UKRAINE.

  • THE MISSILE THAT LANDED LAST

  • NIGHT IN POLAND AND KILLED TWO

  • OF ITS CITIZENS SPARKED

  • EMERGENCY MEETINGS OF NATO AND

  • THE WORLD'S LEADING DEMOCRACIES,

  • AS WELL AS MULTIPLE PHONE CALLS

  • BY PRESIDENT BIDEN AND SENIOR

  • U.S. OFFICIALS.

  • TODAY, INITIAL FINDINGS SUGGEST

  • IT WAS AN ERRANT UKRAINIAN AIR

  • DEFENSE MISSILE, NOT A RUSSIAN

  • MISSILE.

  • TO DISCUSS THIS, I AM JOINED BY

  • OUR NICK SCHIFRIN.

  • I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN REPORTING

  • ON THIS SINCE THE NEWS FIRST

  • BROKE.

  • WHAT IS KNOWN AT THIS POINT

  • ABOUT THIS EXPLOSION?

  • NICK: THE INVESTIGATION IS BEING

  • LED BY POLISH AUTHORITIES AIDED

  • BY THE U.S.

  • ANDRZEJ DUDA SAID IT WAS "HIGHLY

  • PROBABLE" THAT UKRAINIAN AIR

  • DEFENSE MISSILE LANDED IN

  • POLAND.

  • WE HEARD FROM IAN STOLTENBERG AS

  • WELL WHO SAID THE EXPLOSION WAS

  • "LIKELY CAUSED BY UKRAINIAN

  • MISSILE."

  • SECRETARY OF DEFENSE LLOYD

  • OFFICE -- LLOYD AUSTEN THOSE

  • ASSESSMENTS.

  • >> OUR INFORMATION SUPPORTS WHAT

  • PRESIDENT DUDA SAID IN HIS

  • PRELIMINARY ASSESSED -- LUMINARY

  • ASSESSMENT, IS THAT THIS IS MOST

  • LIKELY A RESULT OF UKRAINIAN AIR

  • DEFENSE MISSILE.

  • NICK: THIS IS THE AFTERMATH OF

  • THAT MISSILE.

  • WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT OUR

  • UKRAINIAN MUSCLES THAT THEY ARE

  • USING TO SHOOT DOWN -- UKRAINIAN

  • MISSILES THAT THEY ARE USING TO

  • SHOOT DOWN THOSE MUSCLES.

  • RUSSIA LAUNCHED AN HUNDRED

  • STRIKES ACROSS UKRAINE.

  • THAT IS THE LARGEST SALVO OF THE

  • WAR.

  • UKRAINE IS NOT ON THE SAME PAGE

  • TONIGHT.

  • YOU HEAR PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR

  • ZELENSKYY SAID HIS MILITARY TOLD

  • HIM IT WAS NOT THEM.

  • >> HAVE NO REASON TO DOUBT THE

  • EVENING REPORT BY THE COMMANDER

  • OF THE AIR FORCE, DELIVERED TO

  • ME PERSONALLY AS WELL AS TO

  • COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF ZALUZHNYI.

  • I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT IT WAS NOT

  • OUR MISSILE.

  • NICK: THAT IS A BIT OF THE

  • DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE U.S. AND

  • UKRAINE.

  • U.S. OFFICIALS ARE INCREASINGLY

  • CONFIDENT IN THEIR INITIAL

  • ASSESSMENT BASED ON THINGS LIKE

  • THE INVESTIGATORS, U.S. AND

  • POLISH ON THE GROUND, BASED ON

  • THINGS LIKE RADAR, HE TRACKING,

  • AND SOME INTERCEPTED

  • COMMUNICATION.

  • DESPITE THE DISCONNECT, IT DOES

  • SEEM LIKE THIS CRISIS IS OVER.

  • IT WAS A CRISIS.

  • THE G7 LEADERS MEETING IN BALI

  • MET AT AN EMERGENCY MEETING.

  • NATO MET IN AN UNSCHEDULED

  • MEETING.

  • PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HIS TOP

  • AIDES WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF

  • THE NIGHT, BUT IS JAKE SULLIVAN,

  • SECRETARY OF STATE ANTONY

  • BLINKEN, TAKING NOTES.

  • THEY SPENT HOURS SCRAMBLING

  • BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN A FEAR

  • THAT SINCE RUSSIA INVADED

  • UKRAINE, THIS WAR COULD SPILL

  • OVER INTO NATO.

  • LAST NIGHT, FOR A MINUTE, THERE

  • WAS A FEAR THAT THAT HAD

  • ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

  • JUDY: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

  • SURPRISED IT HAD NOT HAPPENED

  • BEFORE NOW.

  • LET'S BROADEN IT OUT, THE WAR

  • ITSELF.

  • WE KNOW UKRAINE HAS HAD

  • SUCCESSES IN THE LAST SEVERAL

  • WEEKS.

  • IT WAS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT

  • CHIEFS WHO SAID -- WHO SUGGESTED

  • UKRAINE OUGHT TO BE THINKING

  • ABOUT NEGOTIATING.

  • NICK: WE HAVE SEEN UKRAINE SEES

  • THE ONLY REGIONAL CAPITAL THAT

  • RUSSIA SEIZED THIS YEAR, THAT

  • HIS HAIR SOUND.

  • U.S. OFFICIALS BELIEVE IT IS

  • GETTING MUDDY ON THE

  • BATTLEFIELD.

  • THAT WILL LIMIT THE ABILITY FOR

  • UKRAINE AND RUSSIA TO SEIZE AND

  • MOVE THE OTHER PERSON FAR.

  • THAT HAS LED THE CHAIRMAN OF THE

  • JOINT CHIEFS LAST WEEK TO SAY

  • THAT NEITHER SIDE COULD ACHIEVE

  • THEIR MILITARY OBJECTIVES, AND

  • HE SAID "WHEN THERE IS AN

  • OPPORTUNITY TO NEGOTIATE, SEIZE

  • THE MOMENT."

  • HE WAS CRITICIZED BY SOME IN

  • UKRAINE AND HERE FOR THAT

  • COMMENT.

  • TODAY, HE SAID EXPLICITLY THAT

  • UKRAINE PLANT TO KEEP FIGHTING.

  • >> UKRAINE IS GOING TO CONTINUE

  • TO TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE

  • RUSSIANS.

  • AND I JUST HAD A SIGNIFICANT

  • CONVERSATION WITH MY UKRAINIAN

  • COUNTERPART, AND HE ASSURES ME

  • THAT THAT IS THE FUTURE FOR

  • UKRAINE.

  • NICK: I WAS IN THE ROOM, AND WE

  • ASKED HIM, WE PRESSED HIM ON HIS

  • COMMENTS LAST WEEK MULTIPLE

  • TIMES.

  • HE FINALLY ADMITTED GIVEN THE

  • 100,000 PLUS CASUALTIES THAT

  • RUSSIA HAS TAKEN IN THIS WAR, HE

  • SAYS PERHAPS MAYBE IT IS NOT THE

  • WORST TIME TO NEGOTIATE.

  • >> THE RUSSIAN MILITARY IS

  • REALLY HURTING BAD.

  • SO, YOU WANT TO NEGOTIATE AT A

  • TIME WHEN YOU'RE AT YOUR

  • STRENGTH AND YOUR OPPONENT IS AT

  • WEAKNESS.

  • AND IT'S POSSIBLE, MAYBE, THERE

  • WILL BE A POLITICAL SOLUTION.

  • ALL I'M SAYING IS THERE IS A

  • POSSIBILITY FOR IT.

  • THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING.

  • NICK: THE OFFICIAL U.S. POLICY

  • IS THAT ONLY UKRAINE CAN DECIDE

  • WHEN TO NEGOTIATE.

  • THE UKRAINIAN OFFICIALS TELL ME

  • AND OTHERS THEY HAVE NO DESIRE

  • TO NEGOTIATE AND THEY THINK THEY

  • CAN WIN.

  • GIVEN WHAT HE IS ADMITTING, THAT

  • VICTORY IS GOING TO BE VERY

  • DIFFICULT, THE U.S. EXPECTS THIS

  • WAR TO CONTINUE FOR A LONG TIME,

  • AS AUSTIN SAID TODAY, I DO NOT

  • THINK THIS WAR WILL BE OVER

  • ANYTIME SOON.

  • JUDY: WOULD LOVE TO BE A FLY ON

  • THE WALL FOR THOSE CONVERSATIONS

  • BETWEEN U.S. OFFICIALS AND THE

  • UKRAINIANS.

  • NICK: ABSOLUTELY.

  • JUDY: NICK SCHIFRIN, THANK YOU.

  • NICK: THANK YOU.
