In her letter Fay has said:
“I condemn the actions taken by the Government of Russia by invading the democracy of the free country of Ukraine.
“I am deeply distressed and upset at the unlawful and unprovoked attack on Ukraine that I have witnessed across the media.
“On behalf of all the residents of the Borough of Maidstone, I wish to pledge my full and unswerving support to you, the Government and the people of Ukraine, at this most deeply disturbing of times. Our prayers and our thoughts are with you all.”
Maidstone Town Hall is flying the Ukrainian flag and lighting the building up in blue and yellow as a mark of solidarity for the people of Ukraine.
