Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on the world to stage a global protest against Russia on March 24, one month after Russian troops invaded Ukraine.
- Over 3.6 million refugees have fled Ukraine since the Russian invasion began.
What he’s saying: “Show your standing. Come from your offices, your homes, your schools and universities. Come in the name of peace,” Zelensky said.
- “Come with Ukrainian symbols to support Ukraine, to support freedom, to support life,” he added.
- “Make yourselves visible and heard. Say that people matter, freedom matters, peace matters, Ukraine matters,” Zelensky said, urging people to come together as “one who wants to stop the war.”
