The US Embassy in Sarajevo also tweeted, “Today marks a year since the brutal murder of George Floyd. The senseless killing spurred Black Lives Matter protests to demand an end to systemic racism, what @SecBlinken has called “a time of reckoning in our nation.””

The US Embassy in Athens, Greece tweeted a video saying: “We raise this banner in honor of George Floyd, murdered one year ago today, in solidarity with people around the globe seeking a world without racial discrimination and a future with equal opportunity for all.”
