One year after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, marches, prayers and demonstrations have taken place across the Netherlands to show support for the Ukrainian people.

Around 1,000 people gathered for a demonstration at a dam in the city center in Amsterdam, with similar events taking place in The Hague, Utrecht and Groningen.

Hundreds took part in a silent procession as Ukrainian flags were hoisted over civic buildings and Hofweibelstrasse in The Hague.

Also in The Hague, artist Teun Kastelrain installed a barrel organ outside the Russian Embassy and played the Ukrainian national anthem for several hours.

In Rotterdam, Ukrainian flags lined Maas Boulevard and an evening procession from City Hall.

In Utrecht, hundreds of people marched silently from the main train station to the Jaarbeurs fairgrounds.

Ministers delivered speeches pledging continued support for Ukraine. Chancellor Mark Rutte promised the Netherlands “will continue to support Ukraine as much as we can”. Foreign Minister Wopke Hekstra said the war was meaningless.

About 65,000 Ukrainian citizens are currently living as refugees in the Netherlands.
