ARIZONA, USA — Cities and towns across Arizona are displaying blue and yellow lights, the colors of the Ukrainian flag, in a show of solidarity with the European country as it deals with a full-on invasion from Russia.
Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine last week, unleashing airstrikes on cities and military bases and sending in troops and tanks from three sides in an attack that could rewrite the post-Cold War security order.
The Arizona State Capitol is lit yellow and blue this week in honor of the brave people of Ukraine, according to Gov. Doug Ducey.
