NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – People participated in a demonstration Saturday in Norfolk to show support for Ukraine and its people.

The group sang songs, held up signs, and chanted against what they called “Putin’s Invasion.” Participants said they also plan to post pictures of the demonstration on Ukrainian sites to show that people in Virginia are supporting them.

“I think we can affect things because the cars that are passing us right now, they have seen how passionate we are about Ukraine and issues there, so they’re probably going to come home and check what is happening there,” said Iryna Kutsevol, who was born in Ukraine.

The group hopes the U.S. will take a more active roll in Ukraine, and that the president will do more to keep the Russians out of the country.
