Ukrainian flag hoisted in NYC center to fly until victory
New York City Mayor Eric Adams took part in the ceremony of raising U.S. and Ukrainian flags in Manhattan.
“Any conflict that unfolds on a global scale is unfolding in the streets of New York. The bombs that explode in Kyiv are breaking our hearts here in New York and all over our country,” Adams said. According to the NYC Mayor, raising the flag is also “raising the energy and spirit of the Ukrainian people so that they know that we stand with them.”
The ceremony was attended by the Consul General of Ukraine in New York Oleksiy Holubov. The Ukrainian flag was raised to the National Anthem performed by the soloist of the band KAZKA.
