PARIS, July 12, /ITAR-TASS/. About one hundred people came to the Fontaine des Innocents in central Paris on Friday evening to take part in an action for peace in Ukraine. The rally was dedicated to the memory of children who are killed in the zone of combat operation in Ukraine’s eastern regions.
Participants - residents of Ukraine, Russia and France - were holding candles and photos of children killed or wounded amidst the hostilities in Ukraine. Slogans in Ukrainian, Russian and French read “Stop the War,” “Say No to Inhumanity.”
Organizers said the choice of venue was symbolic: the Fontaine des Innocents - the oldest Renaissance monument that used to stand just outside the walls of the largest cemetery in Paris, the Cimeti·re des Saint-Innocents, which was believed to be a cemetery for the ‘innocent souls’ of children. Participants had flags of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics, Russia, Ukrainian and French flags, and the rainbow flag of the peace movement.
“Regrettably, the mass media are silent about the tragedy in Odessa, about the death of children in Slavyansk and other eastern Ukrainian cities. These facts are unknown,” said Georgy Shepelev, one of the organizers of the action. “We want to draw public attention to this problem.”
Money and humanitarian aid raising campaigns were organized during the action. “Each new day take more and more lives,” activists said. “We must do our best to have truce be finally reached in Ukraine’s eastern regions.
