The Ukrainian flag has already been raised in the Donetsk region’s Lyman, although fighting is still going on in the city, said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, APA reports citing Ukrinform.
“The Ukrainian flag is already in Lyman, Donetsk region. Fighting is still going on there. But there is no trace of any pseudo-referendum there,” Zelensky said.
In his words, this week more Ukrainian flags have appeared in eastern Ukraine, and their number will be increasing.
“This is the first bell that should be heard at all levels of the Russian government. Until you all solve the problem with the one who started it all, who started this senseless for Russia war against Ukraine, you will be killed one by one, making scapegoats, so as not to admit that this war is a historical mistake for Russia,” Zelensky noted.
