MSNBC Analyst Malcolm Nance Joins the Fight in Ukraine

MSNBC foreign policy analyst Malcolm Nance revealed Monday that he is on the ground in Ukraine fighting the invading Russian forces.

Nance, a retired Naval intelligence officer, told Joy Reid on The ReidOut that he had joined the country’s international legion about a month ago.

“The more I saw of the war going on, the more I thought, ‘I’m done talking, all right? It’s time to take action here,’” said Nance, armed and dressed in military attire. “I am here to help this country fight … what essentially is a war of extermination. This is an existential war and Russia has brought it to these people and they are mass murdering civilians, and there are people here like me who are here to do something about it.”

Nance, the executive director of a think tank called the Terror Asymmetrics Project, was asked if the fact that he is a foreigner “poses any special danger” to others there like himself.

“No, it doesn’t, because the war that’s being waged here is being waged against everybody,” Nance replied. “[The Russians] are not going around hunting for American flag patches or to see who’s Black, who’s Asian, who’s Latino.”

At one point in the interview, Nance made a direct appeal to President Biden for “heavy weapons.”

“Russia has one advantage on the battlefield and that is long range artillery,” Nance said.

“Let me say something to the president of the United States: give [Ukraine] counter battery long range artillery – multiple rocket launch systems…to out-range the artillery. If you do that, you stop the attacks on civilians because that’s what they’re doing with the artillery.”
