365 Days of Freedom Defense: Ukrainians in North America, together with the KLYCH community, organized events to commemorate the anniversary of the full-scale invasion.
On February 24, 25, and 26, 2023, Ukrainians took part in the "Ukraine: 365 Days of Defending Freedom" mass rallies in various cities in the United States. The purpose of these events was to express gratitude for the support in approaching a shared victory and the ongoing struggle for freedom in Ukraine.
These actions took place in some of the largest cities in the USA, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, San Antonio, and Los Angeles, as well as in over sixty other cities.
Activists, supported by the KLYCH community, took to the streets of these cities with posters representing each of the 365 days since February 24, 2022. Each poster featured a photograph that recounted an event that occurred on that day. In this way, participants in the actions highlighted the daily struggle of Ukrainians for freedom to the entire world. Ukrainians called on everyone to come together to remember this year, thank the world for helping us through it, and urged the world to protect freedom collectively and achieve victory together.
"When the world gave us three days, we gave them a year. Ukrainians inspire people around the world and will continue to be a beacon of light through unity. More than 64 cities in North America proudly come together to thank the world for standing by our side and ask for support until the end. When the world gave us three days, we will achieve a victory that is a victory for all free nations." - Alexander Krapivkin, KLYCH.
Since the end of February last year, Ukrainians around the world have been actively participating in pro-Ukraine actions in various cities, demanding support for Ukraine and assistance.
