Here is a video of Japanese ladies singing Ukraine’s National Anthem. It’s very touching to see people from around the world doing things in support of Ukraine as it is being attacked by soldiers commanded by Vladimir Putin, the dictator of Russia.

Other acts of solidarity are occurring around the world. For example, here is a photo of a protest against Putin that took place in Berlin.

Here is another demonstration in support of Ukraine that happened in London
Demonstration today in support of Ukraine in Brussels

A demonstration in solidarity with Ukraine was planned for Sunday, February 20, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Let’s hope that all democracies around the world come together to #StandWithUkraine and give them financial, military and emotional support to fight against Putin and his plans for Ukraine. This is an independent nation. We must not be silent in the face of this aggression. Putin has acted with impunity so far and killed many innocent people, including political opponents and journalists. At least nine Putin critics have ended up dying in suspicious circumstances in the past few years.

After four days of war, protests against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine have taken place in Amsterdam; Antwerp; Athens; Austin; Bangkok; Barcelona; Bari; Beirut; Berlin; Bern; Bordeaux; Boston; Brighton; Brussels; Budapest; Buenos Aires; Caernarfon; Cambridge; Cape Town; Chicago; Colombo; Copenhagen; Denver; Dublin; Edinburgh; Exeter; Frankfurt; Geneva; Glasgow; Helsinki; Houston; Istanbul; Krakow; London; Madrid; Manchester; Marseille; Melbourne; Mexico City; Milan; Milwaukee; Minneapolis; Minsk; Montclair; Montpellier; Montreal; Munich; Naples; Newcastle; New Delhi; New York City; Nice; Norwich; Nottingham; Oslo; Ottawa; Oxford; Paris; Prague; Pretoria; Pristina; Rome; Salerno; San Francisco; Santa Monica; Santiago; Sao Paulo; Seoul; Stockholm; Sydney; Taipei; Tallinn; Tbilisi; Tehran; Tel Aviv; The Hague; Thessaloniki; Tokyo; Turin; Vienna; Vilnius; Warsaw; Washington, DC; Wellington; and Zakopane.

It’s time for all of us to stand up and not let Putin get away with more acts of aggression, such as occurred when Russian military forces took over Crimea in March of 2014 and got away with it. The line must be drawn with Ukraine. #StandWithUkraine.
