Ukrainians from Western New York and southern Ontario will rally at the Peace Bridge from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday to show their support for the pro-European protesters in their home country.

The Peace Bridge and the Electric Tower in downtown Buffalo will be lit in blue and yellow, the colors of the Ukrainian flag, Sunday night.

The protests, known as Euromaidan, began in Kiev on Nov. 21, when students demonstrated against the government’s decision not to sign an association agreement with the European Union, but to ally more closely with Russia.
