Since mid January various supporters of Ukraine started gathering in Balboa park for weekly rallies calling for the world to Stand With Ukraine against Russian aggression. After the full scale invasion many of us promised to ourselves and the community that we will be gathering to Stand With Ukraine every weekend until Ukraine is free, peaceful and independent again. Since the beginning of the war tens of thousands have been killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and millions forced out of their homes. Currently the whole country has to live with scheduled blackouts since the enemy has been systematically destroying energy infrastructure all over the country, hoping to intimidate the Ukrainian population, force the Ukrainian government into submission and retaliation and to cause another wave of refugee migration to Western Europe.
Many are fatigued by the war, however, this is the largest war in Europe since World War II, that came with genocide against Ukrainian population, multitude of war crimes and utterly destruction of the infrastructure of the country. This war deserves our full attention because the entire world is affected by the war in Ukraine. On the global scale Ukraine plays an important role and we need to keep reminding the public about it. Our rally is to raise awareness and remind society that the war in Ukraine is not over! Please, join us to Stand With Ukraine.
