BALTIMORE, MD – As the crisis in Ukraine continues, the world is united behind them. The Russian invasion continues, but the spirit of the Ukrainian people is causing problems for the invading army. Worse, the world has united against Russia in the forms of sanctions and protests.

Here in America, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan attended a special prayer service at St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore City.

At the end of the service, the governor said, “I am proud to be here with all of you in this beautiful church, to try to address to you and speak in solidarity of all the people of Maryland that we stand with the brave, proud people of Ukraine. This has united the people of Maryland, America, and the world. Slava Ukraini.”

Maryland has terminated their sister-state relationship with Leningrad, Hogan said.

“Over the weekend, the governor directed the Secretary of State to terminate Maryland’s sister state relationship with the Leningrad Region of Russia, which was first established in 1993,” the Governor’s office reported.

The governor has also directed state agencies to review any and all contracts, procurements, and holdings that may have ties to Russian entities.

On Friday evening, Government House in Annapolis was lit blue and yellow in solidarity with Ukraine.
