NEW YORK – Several thousand Ukrainians from the Metropolitan New York area and beyond, joined by supporters of various ethnic backgrounds, converged on New York’s famed Times Square on Saturday afternoon, March 5, to demonstrate their support for embattled Ukraine and to call on the U.S. government and NATO to do more to assist Ukraine in its defense against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war on the country. The photo above shows but a portion of the crowd, which chanted such slogans as “No-fly zone,” “We stand with Ukraine” and “Glory to Ukraine, glory to the heroes,” and sang the Ukrainian national anthem. Seen among the crowd were placards written in English, Ukrainian, Polish and Russian. In addition, a caravan of vehicles drove by several times with Ukrainian flags and banners calling for increased support for Ukraine and for the American public to stand with Ukraine.
