This Thursday, February 24, 2022, Vladimir Putin launched the military offensive against Ukraine. A dreaded Russian invasion that makes us fear the worst for the coming days. In support of the Ukrainian people, many countries light up in the colors of the blue-yellow flag.
The siren sounded this Thursday morning in Kiev, signaling the end of a last night of peace for the Ukrainians. In support of this country invaded by Russian troops, France, Canada, Japan and Croatia adorn their most beautiful monuments in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. A strong and united gesture to mark the necessary unity that all states must demonstrate in this conflict.
Dozens of emblematic places are lit up today: Niagara Falls, the Eiffel Tower, 10 Downing Street, the Colosseum and many other buildings around the world. But this outpouring of solidarity does not stop there. Demonstrations in support of the Ukrainian people are also taking place around the world.
Here are some photos posted to Twitter:
Strong and emotionally charged images that show how important it is to stay united in these times of war.
