On Friday, the Ukrainian flag will be hoisted at the Old Town Hall in Bergen.
The flag has been raised to show solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people after Vladimir Putin’s occupation of their country by Russia.
– Many Ukrainians live in Bergen, and many have families there. It was a difficult and painful time for them. City councilor Roger Wallhammer (Labor) says it’s a dark day for Europe as well.
The flag is loaded at 0900.
– Dark day
City Council President and Mayor Rune Bakervik both described Russia’s attack on Ukraine as unjust, unprovoked and an irresponsible violation of international law.
– I would like to know that we are behind you with all Ukrainians in Bergen, people of Ukrainian descent or families in Ukraine. Mayor Rune Bakerwick strongly condemns Russia’s war efforts.
– This is a strong and important announcement of sympathy for the Ukrainian people. This is a dark day, and Russia’s unprovoked invasion is utterly shocking, says Everind Nævdal-Bolstad, Conservative leader in Bergen.
He was still outside on Thursday and spoke to mark such a flag.
– Bergen I think it’s very good to follow cities around the world, which now chooses to hoist the Ukrainian flag, says Navdal-Bolstad.
The mayor and mayor reminded that in Bergen there is evidence of psychological social follow-up for those experiencing a life crisis or difficult situation in relation to the situation in Ukraine.
