Maryland governor Larry Hogan paid a visit to St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore after more than 50 headstones were vandalized in the cemetery and broke down while giving a speech.
Hogan visited the church on Monday, February 28 in solidarity of the members and staff of the church. Photos taken from his visit show him getting teary-eyed as he gave a speech inside of the church.
Hogan said in the Facebook post:
"Today I stood shoulder to shoulder with members of the Ukrainian community during a special prayer service at St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore City.
The people of Maryland continue to stand in solidarity with the brave, proud people of Ukraine. Slava Ukraini."
St. Michael's is trying to raise money in order to repair the headstones that were damaged and is in the process of informing the families who were affected in the deplorable acts.
Baltimore City Police are asking anyone with information to come forward to help hold those responsible accountable for their acts.
