Minute of silence to mark one year since Russian invasion of Ukraine

Share this page

At 11am Friday 24th February government buildings across the Bailiwick will observe a one-minute silence to mark the anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Islanders and organisations are also invited to take part in the silence which is commended by the Bailiff and will coincide with the UK's national moment of silence.
Mr Richard McMahon, Bailiff of Guernsey, said:

"It is important that we continue to show our support for the people of Ukraine on this milestone date and I am sure that this demonstration that they are still in our thoughts and prayers will be much appreciated."

Deputy Peter Ferbrache, President of the Policy & Resources Committee, said:

"On the anniversary of Russia's unlawful invasion, the islands continue to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

It is only right that we mark the start of this aggression by taking a moment to remember those who have tragically lost their lives whilst fighting to defend freedom and democracy."

The Bailiff's Disaster Relief Fund in respect of Ukraine remains open to channel islanders' donations to the UK Disasters Emergency Committee which works with aid agencies in Ukraine to assist those affected.  Anyone who wishes to make a donation can still do so as follows:

•    By bank transfer:

Bank: NatWest Bank, Guernsey
Sort Code 60-09-20
Account Number 74070487

•    In person at the bank counter:

Any branch of NatWest in the Bailiwick for the account of Bailiff's Disaster Relief Fund Ukraine Appeal, number 74070487

•    By post:

Cheques may be made payable to Bailiff's Disaster Relief Fund Ukraine Appeal and sent to The Bailiff's Chambers, Royal Court House, St. Peter Port, GY1 2NZ

Please note that donations can also be made directly through the Red Cross, UNICEF and the Disasters Emergency Committee websites.
