In a press release, the UCC said the march was being held to thank Canada, the United States and NATO countries “for their support thus far, and to stress why we need more.”

“We need more defence systems and a NO-FLY ZONE to stop the unnecessary bloodshed and potential genocide,” the release reads.

The UCC said Ukraine is “protecting Europe and democracy,” but needs a no-fly zone, and additional help from NATO.
