Alexandria has lit City Hall and the George Washington Masonic Memorial in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. The effort of solidarity for the beleaguered country has been echoed by shining blue and yellow lights on bridges and buildings throughout the region.

Russia invaded Ukraine last week, and hundreds have been killed so far during the conflict. At time of writing, Ukraine and Russia are currently engaging in ceasefire talks after Ukrainian resistance stalled Russia’s approach into Kyiv and other major cities.

Alexandria city leaders, meanwhile, shared messages of support for Ukraine.

Sen. Mark Warner (D), Alexandria resident and chairman of the Senate Intel Committee, has also been vocal in condemning Russia’s invasion and outlining what types of sanctions and responses are warranted.
