Ukrainian-Americans protest at the White House

Demonstrators hold placards during a rally in front of the White House on March 6, 2014 in Washington, DCJust hours after President Barack Obama unveiled visa bans and laid the ground for sanctions against Russia, the Ukrainian diaspora made their own stand outside the White House. In a protest that was as emphatic in its condemnation of President Vladimir Putin’s actions as it was as supportive of the US measures in response, American-Ukrainians appeared united — and worried. Evgeni Kazmirhuk, 37, from Stamford, Connecticut, carried a black and white portrait of Putin, embellished with a splash of red paint as if the Russian leader had been shot in the head. Other demonstrators held banners that said “Lenin, Stalin, Putin,” “No more Russian empire” and “Crimea is Ukraine,” while the crowd sang the US and Ukrainian national anthems and a few miles away Congress considered its response.
