There are two rallies planned in Kamloops this weekend to show support for Ukraine as the country is invaded by Russian troops.

As of Friday (Feb. 25), reports state Russian troops were entering the capital city of Kyiv.

Those who support Ukraine’s independence and who are opposed to the Russian aggression are welcome to attend the two events in downtown Kamloops on Saturday (Feb. 26).

One rally is set to be held at noon in front of the Kamloops Law Courts, at Columbia Street and Fourth Avenue. A second rally is scheduled to be held in Riverside Park at 3 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to hoist the blue and yellow Ukrainian flag and a stage will be available at both events for those who wish to speak.

The Canadian Red Cross is also accepting donations for Ukraine and the federal government has said it will match that collected by the agency.
