Ottawa Mothers Against Violence in Ukraine

On Sunday, April 3, several dozen empty baby carriages were lined up in front of the Russian Embassy in Ottawa. These are symbols of the children killed in Ukraine as a result of the Russian invasion, presented by Ottawa mothers and supporters in the capital, in protest against the Russian war against Ukraine. Russian attacks have continued for over a month, destroying cities and towns in this peaceful nation and killing at least five thousand civilians, including over one hundred and fifty children. International observers confirm that the true numbers may be higher. Over 4 million Ukrainian families have lost their homes, mostly mothers with children, and the elderly, now forced to seek asylum in neighbouring countries.
