According to daily SME, most of them were Ukrainians living here who felt they had to express their solidarity in some way. Another gathering is planned in front of the embassy tomorrow afternoon at 3pm.

As Ukraine’s neighbour, Slovakia has condemned the violence being witnessed there, but today saw the most violent day, with an estimated 100 or so people killed so far.
