Maryland governor, lawmakers, hold vigil for Ukraine
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and state lawmakers have held a vigil for Ukraine in front of the Capitol in Annapolis.
After the vigil Wednesday night, the dome of the historic Maryland State House was colored with blue and yellow lights, the colors of Ukraine’s flag.
Hogan announced Monday that Maryland has dissolved a sister-state relationship with Russia’s Leningrad region in response to the invasion of Ukraine.
Maryland lawmakers are scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday with the state’s pension system to better understand the system’s current investments, federal requirements and potential steps for divestment from Russia.
Tonight we came together to show support for the brave people of Ukraine as they fight for their country, for their freedom, and for their very lives. It was truly inspiring and heartwarming to see people from all across our state coming together in this spirit of solidarity. pic.twitter.com/lKYX5PJbok— Governor Larry Hogan (@GovLarryHogan) March 3, 2022
