Anti-war protestors gather at the Capitol

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Over 100 Lincoln community members gathered at the Capitol Saturday morning to protest the Russian-Ukrainian war.

Lincoln residents, many of Ukrainian descent and have family and friends caught in the crossfire, came together to bring attention to the war and ask community members for help.

“We want to deliver the message that freedom cannot be subdued by military weapons,” Oleg Stepanyuk said. “At the end of the day, we will prevail and celebrate, but now is the time that Ukraine needs a lot of help from international communities, from people who are not indifferent to what’s going on.”

Protestors asked community members to give prayers, financial support, and attention to the issue. Currently, Stepanyuk said efforts are focused on sending medical aid and equipment to help the injured.
