Today, Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg released the following statement in support of the Ukrainian people as the flag of Ukraine flies at City Hall

“Charleston has a long history of ceremonially raising national flags over City Hall, most famously the Irish flag in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Today, we fly the flag of Ukraine for a more solemn reason–to recognize the extraordinary valor of the Ukrainian people as they fight for their democracy against a brutal Russian dictator. We’re proud to stand in solidarity with the brave men and women of Ukraine, and hope Mr. Putin will heed the call of decent people the world over to immediately end this cruel and unjust war.”
