Milton Keynes to fall quiet at 11am as UK takes part in minute's silence for Ukraine

    Milton Keynes will fall silent at 11am today as the UK takes part in a minute's silence

    The UK will hold a minute's silence to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine today (24 February).

    The silence will take place at 11am this morning.

    The Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will lead the country in the moment of solidarity. He said: “As we mark one year since a full-scale war broke out on our continent, I urge everyone to reflect on the courage and bravery of our Ukrainian friends who, every hour since, have fought heroically for their country.

    “I am proud that the UK has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Ukraine through this horrific conflict.

    “As I stand with brave Ukrainian soldiers outside Downing Street today, my thoughts will be with all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend freedom and return peace to Europe.”
