More than 100 people gathered on the steps of Cleveland City Hall Friday afternoon to show their support for people in Ukraine.
Chanting "Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the Hero's!" they were protesting the deadly violence in that country.
In the past six days more than 100 people have been killed in clashes with Ukrainian government forces.
Cleveland resident Oleg Hray has lived in Cleveland for the past 10 years and was in Ukraine a week ago.
"As we say our democracy, our independence is only on the paper," says Hray.
