Yorkton businessman shows support for Ukraine

Said family is his driving force behind efforts

YORKTON - On Monday morning, Al Greschuk, owner of Alexander’s Men’s Wear in Yorkton, was on the sidewalk in front of his business distributing Ukrainian flags to vehicles stopped on the street. 

“I was putting out flags in the planters and the cars were stopping at the red lights, rolling their windows down- and they wanted flags,” said Greschuk, adding, “we must have distributed about twenty flags.” 

Greschuk said that he has family in Ukraine and they are his motivation for showing support.   

“I have many cousins there and they’re all under stress- trying to escape from the bloodshed,” adding, “The people are supporting Ukraine here and around the world.”
