The number of Ukrainian flags returning to their rightful place within the framework of the ongoing defense operation. 41 settlements were liberated.
This was announced by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in a statement.
He thanked all the heroes who ensure this progress: Armed Forces, intelligence, and special services. And he emphasized that we should all remember what this movement means, meaning every step of our defense forces is the life of our soldiers.
"The lives that are given for freedom for Ukrainians. Everything that is happening now has been achieved through months of brutal struggle. It has been achieved through bravery, pain, and losses. It is not the enemy who is leaving. It is the Ukrainians who are driving the occupiers at great cost. As in the east of our country, in Kharkiv Oblast. As before in the north - the Kyiv region, the Sumy, and the Chernihiv regions. Now - the Mykolaiv and Kherson regions," Zelensky said.
