On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the west side of the Washington National Cathedral will be painted in the blue-yellow color of the flag of Ukraine.

In a statement Wednesday, a cathedral spokesman said the lights were a way to express solidarity with the Ukrainian people as Russia’s attack on this nation is intensifying.

And at 12:30 pm on Saturday on the street, on the north lawn of the cathedral, there will be a concert-carillon. The concert will feature a selection of Ukrainian songs, including “Prayer for Ukraine”, which was played during the opening of “Saturday Night Live”.

Both events are open to the public, but no one will be allowed into the cathedral.
