Demonstrators Took to the Streets of Downtown Cincinnati During a March for Ukraine

As Russia continues its invasion and destruction of Ukraine, people around the world are gathering via rallies and marches to show their support for Ukrainians.

On Monday, Feb. 28, Cincinnatians demonstrated their solidarity during a March for Ukraine event. The march stepped off from Fountain Square at 3 p.m. and proceeded toward Cincinnati City Hall, where Mayor Aftab Pureval spoke.

Marches and rallies to support Ukraine have been held across Ohio, including in Loveland, Cleveland and Columbus.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine declared Sunday a Day of Prayer for Ukraine and recently stopped the purchase and sale of all Russian vodka in the state. The Ukrainian flag also flew at both the Ohio Statehouse and at DeWine's personal home "to further show support for those under attack in Ukraine and for Ohio's Ukrainian population," according to a release.
