Protestors marched and chanted around the Capitol in Raleigh
Sunday afternoon demanding Russia remove its troops from the Crimean Peninsula.
Approximately 75 people protested
by holding signs reading "Stop Putin!" and "Hands Off Ukraine!"
Some in attendance want the U.S.
and other western nations to step in if Russia refuses to back down.
"Actions speak louder than
words and I hope that the U.S. supports Ukraine as well as the E.U. We are here
to support our fellow Ukrainians in Ukraine," said protestor Luba Sawcezyn.
The Ukrainian Association of
North Carolina organized the protest.
Amtrak services are delayed in Morrisville due to a freight trail derailment, authorities said.
