Members of the Outer Banks’ Ukrainian community and others gathered Saturday morning to show their support for the country under attack by Russian forces.
Several dozen people of all ages turned out despite cold, blustery conditions at Dowdy Park in Nags Head to speak out against the invasion, mirroring gatherings around the world.

One of the main messages expressed during the event: “Slava Ukraini!” “Glory to Ukraine!”
Olya Kramarenko, one of the organizers of the Nags Head event, shared the following words Sunday morning:
«І жах, і кров, і смерть, і відчай,
І клекіт хижої орди,
Куди ж ви дивитесь, народи?!
Сьогодні ми, а завтра – ви»
“And horror, and blood, and death, and despair,
And the cringe of the predator horde,
Where are you looking, people?!
Today we are, and tomorrow you are”
