Dickinson Residents Pray and Petition For Ukraine Freedom

Posted: Updated:

The political upheaval in the Ukraine is drawing attention from around the world. And some North Dakotans are doing more than just watching.

Members of the Dickinson Ukrainian Cultural Institute (UCI) say they've been anxiously watching the events unfold in the Ukraine. And after Russia sent troops into the country, they decided to get their community together to pray.

Members of the Ukrainian Cultural Institute gathered yesterday for a prayer service.

They also signed a petition that one member wrote. He's planning to send it to President Obama asking for the U.S. to help stop Russian advances.

"The prayer service was a combination of both petitions for the Ukraine to remain free, and it was also a prayer service for those who were killed in the demonstrations. We had the memorial service for them. We call it 'may their memory be eternal,'" says Agnes Palanuk of the Dickinson Ukrainian Cultural Institute.

The U.S. has threatened sanctions against Russia if they continue to send troops to the Ukraine.
