Vermonters Demonstrate for Ukraine

Two demonstrations at the Vermont State House in Montpelier last week expressed outrage over the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On Sunday, the first, sponsored by U.S. Rep. Peter Welch, D-VT, featured Ukrainian-American Vermonters and others with ties to Ukraine. The second, Tuesday night, was a candlelight vigil that included the signing by Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, of a bill that will send about $640,000 from Vermont’s treasury to Ukrainian relief, via Save the Children (roughly $1 per Vermonter).
