On 25 February, a mass demonstration against the Russian invasion of Ukraine took place in Brussels. It was dedicated to the anniversary of the start of the war, a DW correspondent reports. The march was organised by the Ukrainian NGO Promote Ukraine, the Union of Ukrainian Women in Belgium, and the Belgian committee of the European Network in Solidarity with Ukraine (ENSU).
