Oslo – Today marked the third consecutive rally in protest of Russia’s invasion in Ukraine during the early hours on Thursday.

At 11:00AM, over 1,000 protestors started to gather outside the Norwegian parliament in the cold as they listened to speakers condemn President Vladimir Putin’s aggression and calls for sanctions.

Chants of “Stop war. Stop Putin” and “Ukraine” were heard, and at times, the crowd bursts into singing the national anthem of Ukraine with some shedding tears.

In front of the Norwegian parliament stood a line of people holding a long, blue-and-yellow Ukrainian flag. When all the speeches had ended, they carried this flag along Karl Johan street towards the Russian embassy.

The protest was organised by Ukrainian Association for Eastern Norway, The Ukrainian Association in Norway, The Norwegian Democracy Association, SmåRådina and the Norwegian Peace Council.

Since the invasion, at least 198 Ukrainians, including three children have been killed according to Ukrainian Health Minister Viktor Liashko’s facebook post. 1115 injured, 33 of which were children.
