Some of Kelowna’s Ukrainian allies have fallen.

Danylo Sora broke the news on the Kelowna Stands With Ukraine facebook page that two “defenders” in Ukraine have died.

Supporters have been sending supplies to defence groups across Ukraine, and had sent the last bags of equipment to the two that have been pronounced dead.

“I bring the message to our community that their help is really important, but to remember that the war is not over yet,” Sora told Capital News.
