LUkraine asbl has announced that it is organising a solidarity march in Luxembourg City to mark the second anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Saturday 24 February 2024.

Participants are invited to gather in front of Luxembourg Railway Station (Gare de Luxembourg) at 14:00. At 14:15, they will march towards Place de Clairefontaine, where the official commemorative ceremony (with speeches) is planned from 15:00 to 16:30.

According to LUkraine asbl, this demonstration is a call for unity and solidarity, "recognising that Ukraine's battle against aggression is a pivotal moment for the whole of Europe". The non-profit elaborated: "It's a demonstration of our shared commitment to peace, democracy and the belief that our collective actions today will shape the future of not just Ukraine, but the entire European continent." It added that "Luxembourg knows very well what fighting for independence and national identity means, and this is what unites us. Choosing any other scenario but the victory of Ukraine means letting Russia wreck the world order and the peace the world has been trying to maintain since WWII."

"Together, we can send a powerful message that we are united against evil and for a peaceful future," added LUkraine asbl in its call for members of the public to join the upcoming demonstration.
