Dozens of people have gathered in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 6 in show of support for Ukraine, as it faces the growing threat of further Russian aggression.
The activists brought national Ukrainian and U.S. flags and held a prayer during the demonstration.
The U.S. has been one of the biggest supporters of Ukraine during the recent security crisis with Russia massing over 120,000 combat-ready troops along the Ukrainian border. The U.S. has supplied more than 650 tons of defense ammunition to Ukraine since Jan. 22 and threatened severe sanctions against Russia in case of invasion.
As of 2019, there were more than 1 million Americans of Ukrainian descent in the U.S. The country is home to one of the biggest Ukrainian diasporas in the world.
