Houston buildings light up for Ukraine

HOUSTON – Some buildings throughout Houston turned their lights on in solidarity with Ukraine.

Several buildings including Ellington Airport and George Bush Intercontinental Airport were lit with blue and yellow lights in support of Ukraine.

Earlier in a statement, Mayor Turner said: “The city of Houston condemns the unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine by the Russian federation and stands with the people of Ukraine against the on-going violence.”

He said the global system is built on the principle of the sovereignty of nation states – a principle violated by Russia that has damaged the entire concept of international peace.

The mayor said Houston stands for freedom; for democracy; and for the safety and security of all residents. He also called for an immediate end to the violence, to protect human rights, and for the return of peace in Europe.
