#NoWarWithIran

Lida Buniak

When the Ukrainian airliner was allegedly shot down over Iran this week, the pain and loss was felt here in Syracuse.  The local Ukrainian community is planning a memorial service tomorrow to remember all the victims.  Lida  Burniak said the incident was more than just a tragedy involving a Ukrainian plane.

 “This involves multi-national passengers and it’s a humanitarian issue for a loss of innocent lives. So if we could come together and pray together, things (would ) look more optimistically that there’s something more beyond politics,” said Burniak
