March through Nottingham city marks one year since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

To mark one year since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Notts UK Solidarity Campaign held a march in Nottingham city centre today Saturday 25 February.

The leader of Nottingham City Council, Cllr David Mellen said:

“The attack on Ukraine has resulted in thousands of lives being lost, seen towns and cities destroyed, and led to Ukrainian people having to flee their homes to neighbouring countries.

“I’m saddened that, one year on, we are no closer to a resolution of this conflict. As with all tragedies, it is our response in the face of adversity that defines who we are.

“The people of Ukraine have stood firm against this act of aggression – and I am proud that here in Nottingham we are standing with them. We have responded with donations of aid and money, sent off blankets and clothing as part of a humanitarian response – and finally, people have opened their homes.
