Members of Minnesota's Ukrainian American community and other supporters marched through Minneapolis on Sunday afternoon, to call for an end to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The marchers gathered at St. Michael’s and St. George's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in northeast Minneapolis, then followed a route that crossed both the Stone Arch Bridge and Hennepin Avenue Bridge.

The crowd carried Ukrainian flags — and signs reading "Stop Putin, Stop War" and "No War in Ukraine" — as they sang and chanted along the way.

There have been several marches and protests in support of Ukraine in the Twin Cities in recent days, including a rally outside St. Constantine Ukrainian Catholic Church in Minneapolis last Thursday evening.

Several Minneapolis landmarks were lit in blue and yellow over the weekend — the colors of the Ukrainian flag. So was Enger Tower in Duluth.
