Friday, 24 February 2023

Start at 16:00, Café Kyiv, Karl-Marx-Allee 34, 10178 Berlin

Final rally at 18:00, Brandenburger Tor

On the first anniversary of the russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine, we invite all who stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people to join our demonstration in Berlin. The demonstration, organized by Vitsche in collaboration with the Zentrum für Liberale Moderne, will take place on February 24th, 2023, starting at 16:00 at Cafe Kyiv, Karl-Marx-Allee 34, 10178 Berlin. The final rally is planned for 18:00 at the Brandenburg Gate.

The demonstration aims to raise awareness of the ongoing russian war against Ukraine and to call for more international support for Ukraine and its people in their efforts to defend the country against russian aggression. Participants will gather to show gratitude to the German society and government for its efforts to take in over one million refugees from Ukraine. Further, the demonstration is intended to remind the international community of russia’s ongoing violations of international law, its terror against Ukrainian civilians, as well as the human rights abuses and war crimes being commited by russia’s occupation forces in Ukraine.

“We are here to show our support for the Ukrainian people and to commemorate the victims of the russian invasion,” said Vladyslava Vorobiova, one of the protest organizers. “Our goal is to keep the world’s attention on the ongoing russian war against Ukraine and to call for actions, justice, and respect for the sovereignty of Ukraine.”

We expect the demonstration to attract thousands of participants, including Ukrainian and German community leaders and politicians. Organizations like Alliance4Ukraine, Allianz Ukrainischer Organisationen, Berlinska Sich, Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker e.V., and Kyiv Dialogue will also support the event.

The demonstration is part of a joint initiative across Germany and Europe.
