Ukrainians living in D.C. as well as other anti-war demonstrators continue to gather outside of the White House.

Hundreds of protesters gathered at the White House throughout last week to show solidarity with Ukraine and protest Russian President Vladimir Putin since he ordered an invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.

Demonstrators have continued to gather in Lafayette Park since Russia’s invasion just outside of the White House fence, asking for President Joe Biden and his administration to do more to stop Putin by increasing sanctions on Russia and to increase military aid to Ukraine.

Here is a look at some highlights from recent demonstrations:
