Tomorrow (February 24) marks 365 days since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The European Union Delegation to Aotearoa New Zealand is organising a gathering at Wellington Waterfront to watch the sunrise and let some sunflowers into the water.
All who #StandWithUkraine are welcome to join.
This solidarity event will begin at dawn (6:30 AM) and conclude shortly after sunrise (6:57 AM).
Supporters will gather at Te Papa Promenade (Taranaki St Diving Platform to the corner just beyond Solace in the Wind statue) – look for the EU flags and torches.
There will be short speeches from representatives of the Ukrainian community in Wellington, Hon Andrew Little and H.E. Nina Obermaier, Ambassador of the European Union.
