Scottish Borders Council lit up their headquarters building in support of Ukraine residents last night.

As a mark of solidarity and support for all those affected by the current events in eastern Europe, the building was floodlit in the yellow and blue colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Council Convener, Councillor David Parker, said: “On behalf of the people of the Scottish Borders, I would like to pass on all our thoughts and prayers to the people of Ukraine.

“The actions of Russian forces on their country are deeply disturbing and we add our voice to those calling urgently for peace in the region.”
