Temple and Farringdon Together get behind City of London’s solidarity with Ukraine

Together Councillors who serve on the City of London’s Leading Policy and Resources Committee – Ruby Sayed, Wendy Mead, and Edward Lord – are today supporting proposals for the Corporation to come out in solidarity with the people of Ukraine as they face the oppressive invasion from their Russian neighbours.

The Corporation has already floodlit its historic Guildhall headquarters in the yellow and blue colours of the Ukrainian flag and will this morning consider a proposal by councillors Tom Sleigh and Tijs Broeke that the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United Kingdom should be given the Freedom of the City of London. This important gesture demonstrates the link between our two countries and our support for their people at this most difficult time.

Consideration is also being given by the Corporation’s Finance Committee to contributing a substantial sum to the emergency appeal in response to the humanitarian crisis occurring as a result of Russia’s unprovoked aggression.
