Dozens of Maltese citizens and activists in Valletta expressed their solidarity with the people of Ukraine in light of the unjustifiable war that Russia continues to wage.

Repubblika, the organisers of the monthly vigil held in honour of slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, paid tribute to Ukraine during the ceremony. They also invited a Ukrainian journalist to address the crowd in the Maltese capital.

The ruling party in Malta, the Labour Party, erected a tent that partially blocked the square where the activists expressing their solidarity with Ukraine stood. The PL’s actions continue to raise eyebrows as a number of these actions tend to favour Putin and his allies.

Repubblika President Robert Aquilina thanked all their supporters.
