KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A group of Kansas Citians announced Thursday a rally in support of Ukraine.
In a Facebook post, the Ukrainian Club of Kansas City described the rally as a demonstration to stop Russian aggression into Ukraine.
Supporters are set to rally at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 26, at the fountain at Mill Creek Park just east of the Country Club Plaza.
“…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.
