Yesterday, on October 8, UAnimals activists and all those who care about Ukraine’s animals walked through the central streets of the Polish capital to draw the world community’s attention to the mass killing of animals and ecocide committed by Russia during the war in Ukraine.
“We are not here because we don’t care about people’s suffering – no. We mourn the death of every person, child, man, woman – absolutely everyone: like those on the front line, and the ones in the rear. Everyone suffers. Today we are here because we need to save animals in Ukraine, to take action here and now”, – says Olga Chevganyuk, operational director and co-founder of UAnimals.
We would like to thank our partners, the Euromaidan Warsaw, and the representative Victoria Pogrebnyak for their help in organizing and holding the march, the Stacjazoo shelter, as well as all the volunteers who responded to our call for help.
Hundreds of people, not only from Ukraine and Poland, but also from other countries joined the march. We are extremely grateful to everyone for their support. You are incredible! This is very inspiring! Together we will definitely be able to save those who need our help and protection. And we hope that next year we will be able to march through the streets of Ukraine!
In the meantime, join our virtual march for the protection of animals, which will last until October 10. Link
