February 3, 2022. OTTAWA, ON. On Sunday February 6, join rallies in support of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people from coast to coast in Canada! Let’s turn Canada blue and yellow and show our support for the Ukrainian people, their freedom and independence!
As the threat of further Russian aggression against Ukraine continues to grow, we need to show that Canada stands with the Ukrainian people in their defence of Ukraine’s sovereignty. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) calls on Canada’s government to immediately provide Ukraine with defensive weapons and increase sanctions against the Russian regime to deter a further Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“We are very grateful for the inspiring response we have received from community organizations and activists in organizing this vital show of support for Ukraine,” stated Alexandra Chyczij, National President of the UCC. “Join us on February 6 to show that Canada stands with Ukraine!”
