Long Beach gathers for peace vigil for Ukraine – Press Telegram

Dozens of people gathered on Belmont Shore in Long Beach this week as the bells of Bay Shore Church rang for a peace-seeking vigil in Ukraine.

Russian forces invaded Ukraine more than a month ago. Attendees at the vigil at Bay Shore Church heard a series of speakers, led by Representative Alan Lowenthal of D-Long Beach.

Highlights of the evening included speeches by two Ukrainians now living here, Yevgeniya Pokhylko and Anna Lugo. Ivan Prokopenko, a Ukrainian student at Cal State Long Beach, also offered his perspective.
