“…We will gather along with other freedom-loving citizens to voice our support for Ukraine and Ukrainians as they defend their homeland and Europe,” the group wrote about the event.

On Thursday, President Joe Biden announced a new round of economic sanctions following a Wednesday night offensive against Ukraine by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
