A PEACE service is being held in Keighley to mark a year since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

And the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain is urging individuals and organisations across the UK to participate in events as a show of solidarity with the war-ravaged country and its people.

The Keighley event is at the Shared Church, in Church Green, on Thursday (February 23), at 12.30pm.

Services are also taking place at Bradford Cathedral on Friday (February 24), the actual anniversary date, at 6pm, and at Christchurch, Ilkley, on Saturday (February 25), at 5pm.

Everyone is welcome.

The association's Keighley chair, Stefan Pryimuk, says: "We are grateful to the UK Government, devolved governments, political leaders, the British people and all spheres of UK society for their unwavering support of Ukraine and displaced Ukrainians during the past year.

"Russia’s war is a war against democratic values, international law and the right to self-determination.

"Ukraine will continue to resist and fight for a complete victory, at huge cost to its people, to protect sovereignty and democracy in the country and to secure lasting peace and stability for the whole of Europe."

Many residents across the Keighley district have welcomed Ukrainian refugees, fleeing their country, into their homes.
