Several dozen people gathered in front of the State House on Monday evening, holding electrically powered candles and blue and yellow flags in a vigil to show solidarity with Ukraine, as Russian forces escalate their attacks that began last week. “Tonight, as we lift up the people of Ukraine with our prayers, they are lifting us up with incredibly inspiring displays of courage and resolve,” Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) said in front of the State House, its pillars adorned with blue and yellow stripes and Ukrainian flags in between.
