Hundreds hit streets of the United States over the last couple of days to protest Russia’s aggression against Ukraine demanding Russia to end a military intervention in the Crimea region and to respect international laws.

Protests were held in New York City, Chicago, Boston, Washington, D.C. and other cities across the U.S. 

One of such demonstrations, held at the Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, March 3, was organized by the Joint Baltic American Committee (JBANC), and attended by members of local Baltic, Ukrainian, Georgian and Russian communities, university students, journalists and public.  

Protesters waved national flags, held posters, discussed latest news and expressed concerns over the potential further spread of Russian aggression if it is not stopped now.

Protesters across the U.S. say that Russia’s aggression pose danger beyond Ukraine’s borders.

Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk, who also attended the rally in the downtown of Washington, D.C. along with Lithuanian ambassador Žygimantas Pavilionis and President of the Heritage Foundation David Kramer, thanked for support of the Baltic and other communities and appealed to all the people of good will to do everything possible to stop Russia’s aggression.

Many other speakers noted that Russia’s aggression pose danger beyond Ukraine’s borders and raised questions how the U.S. Government and every concerned citizen can help.

Pictures below show that people are not only concerned, they also have hope for the peaceful resolution of the conflict.
