Scottish support for Ukraine

As the shocking and desperate war rages on in Ukraine, with the invasion of the country by Russia, I show here some of the Scottish support for Ukraine and Ukrainians as evident on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland.

In the past couple of week I’ve been out photographing some of the small events showing support and aimed at raising funds for Ukraine and for the charities helping those fleeing the fighting and devastation.

These may be small events, but they mean something, a helping hand and a show of support from those far away, those feeling they wish to help in some way.

From coffee mornings by the Salvation Army in Govan, to a bakery sale by Deanston Bakery in Shawlands which raised in excess of £70,000; murals on walls and placards depicting aggressor Russian President Vladimir Putin, to Ukrainian flags on display instead of house listings in estate agent windows in the city’s West End, and the blue and yellow Ukrainian flag carried by football fans at last night’s friendly football game between Scotland and Poland, which also raised approximately £390,000 for charity.

I present here a few images shot in the past week or two. Something that says Scotland cared, and Scottish showed support for Ukraine, they showed compassion. This set of images will continue to grow in coming weeks.
