Finns have knitted over 20,000 pairs of socks for Ukrainian soldiers
20,000 woolen socks were knitted by Finnish women and men, residents of the city of Lahti, for Ukrainian soldiers, Radio Svoboda reports. People responded to the request of Dalia Stasevska, a Finnish conductor of Ukrainian origin.
Through the local press, Dalia Stasevska appealed to residents to make socks for Ukrainian soldiers. Just one week later, Dalya was planning a trip to Lviv for a concert.
“I thought maybe a thousand socks would be knitted, but there were so many people that the thought of how I would be able to transport it made me sweat. I wanted to give warmth to the soldiers when winter comes,” says Dalia Stasevska.
