This past Saturday, Ali Velshi, an anchor with MSNBC, claimed that when the new day dawns over Kyiv, various western nations with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), should be taking steps to respond to the insane atrocities carried out by the Russian invasion forces across Ukraine.
Reportedly, the Ukrainian defense forces managed to wrest control of the area back from Russian troops around the capital city of Kyiv on Saturday, and media pieces cropped up almost immediately in order to document the carnage left in the wake of the retreating Russian forces, a wake of carnage reportedly highlighting the proof that the Russian invasion forces had been making sure to target and attack unarmed civilians and various civilians shelters.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
Ukrainian forces have regained control of the area around the capital city of Kyiv, according to an official in the nation’s government.
In a Saturday Facebook post, Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar said that “Irpin, Bucha, Hostomel and the whole Kyiv region were liberated from the invader!” NBC News added that the announcement followed the British defense ministry revealing that Russian forces “are reported to have withdrawn from Hostomel airport to the city’s northwest, which has been subject to fighting since the first day of the conflict.”
However, Velshi put forth the argument that as the Ukrainians were starting to see some success in the pushing back of the Russian invasion forces, what the retreating invaders were leaving in their wake was extremely hard proof that NATO should be taking steps to initiate actions against Russian President Vladimir Putin concerning the alleged war crimes and other atrocities committed against the Ukrainian civilian population.
“The turning point for the west and NATO will come when the sun rises over Kyiv on Sunday, and the war crimes against civilian non-combatants becomes visible to all. There is no more time for prevarication,” claimed Velshi in a tweet. “If ‘never again’ means anything, then this is the time to act.”
“To those who argue there is too much coverage of the war, to the exclusion of important U.S. stories, by morning you will see irrefutable evidence of mass civilian massacres and graves, and what is looking like genocide, the prevention of which should be America’s greatest priority,” Velshi went on.
Quite rapidly, the photos started to come out that seemed to confirm the comments made in Velshi’s comments, reported and photos showed the bodies of Ukrainian citizens that were bound and shot execution-style just littering the streets.

“Lines have been crossed and war crimes have been committed by Putin that make direct military intervention something NATO now must seriously consider,” finished Velshi, stating, “Zelenskyy has consistently pleaded with the West to do more to aid Ukraine’s defense. Atrocities committed against civilians in Bucha will make inaction less tenable.”
