Saskatonians show support for Ukraine
Candlelight vigil held at the University of Saskatchewan
As Ukraine deals with a major crisis in Crimea, people in Saskatoon are showing their support.
"I feel so much pain for such a beautiful country that right now is occupied and I'm really worried about my relatives and parents, my friends that I grew up with that are in Ukraine right now," ViktoriyaKalchenko helped organize the event.
Kalchenko, who is from Ukraine and now studying at the U of S, said governments here have done a good job responding to the crisis. Still she would like to see Ottawa impose tougher sanctions on Russia.
"The war is the last thing I want, we all want peace," she said. "Ukraine has shown that it has dignity and that we deserve to have true democracy and strong civil society."
