Stop the War demonstration in response to Putin’s invasion to Ukraine

24 February 2022

On February 24 morning, Russian forces unleashed an air and land assault on Ukraine, and by day’s end, troops were closing in on the country’s capital Kyiv and had taken control of Chornobyl, the site of the 1986 nuclear disaster. According to the Ukrainian government, at least 57 citizens have been killed and 169 wounded. Meanwhile, civilians attempted to flee cities under missile assault.

The same day as this terrifying attack happened, hundreds gathered to support the Ukrainian-American community and Ukrainian residents in Sacramento near the State Capitol. The Ukrainian American House gathered together the community on the steps of the state capital to pray for peace on Thursday. Sacramento is home to about 100,000 Ukrainian Americans watching events unfold in horror.

Demonstrators rallied in solidarity at the Capitol, hoping and praying that the conflict with Russia would come to an end, much-expressing fear for friends and family in the war-torn country 6,000 miles away. People were holding and waving signs saying “Stop War,” “Stop Putin,” and “Stand with Ukraine.” All together, they prayed for peace and the end of a horrific war.

We need to stand together for Ukraine to bring this horrific war to an end. Don’t be indifferent and stand with Ukraine! The Ukrainian American House believes that in joint efforts, we can make changes for the better.
