MSNBC reporter in Ukraine says ‘this is the time to act,’ urges NATO to get involved

Ali Velshi, an MSNBC reporter who has been on the ground in Ukraine for the last several days posted a thread on Twitter this weekend warning of the horrors the world would see from Russia’s brutal assault on Kyiv suburbs this weekend, and urging NATO to get involved in the war.

“The turning point for the west and NATO will come when the sun rises over Kyiv on Sunday, & the war crimes against civilian non-combatants becomes visible to all,” Velshi Tweeted. “There is no more time for prevarication. If ‘never again’ means anything, then this is the time to act.”

One user responded to Velshi, asking how NATO should respond, and Velshi replied simply, “Direct military involvement.”

The world did indeed wake on Sunday to horrific images of civilians dead in the streets of Bucha, a suburb of Kyiv that was occupied by Russian forces until recent days. US President Joe Biden called the apparent execution-style killings “brutal” and “outrageous,” adding, “I think it is a war crime … I’m seeking more sanctions.”
