Zelenskyy raises Ukraine flag in show of triumph during visit to recaptured city

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, visited Izium, a newly captured town on Wednesday to witness the flag-raising ceremony as a display of victory.

According to a Ukrainian military brigade, the town is a major supply hub in Kharkiv’s north-eastern Kharkiv.

Zelenskyy expressed gratitude to the soldiers “liberating Ukrainian land” and raised the Ukrainian flag above the city council, as the 25th Separate Airborne Sicheslav Brigade had said.

Facebook posted the statement, including photos of the president, Hanna Malyar, Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Malyar, and other senior military personnel who were present at the ceremony.

Telegram was sent by Ivan Fedorov, the city’s preoccupation mayor. He stated that Russian troops were moving toward Moscow-annexed Crimea.

He also said that columns of military equipment were found at a Chonhar checkpoint, which marks the border between the Crimean Peninsula (now Ukraine) and the Ukrainian mainland.

Since March, Melitopol is under Russian occupation. It would be possible for Kyiv to capture it and disrupt Russian supply lines connecting the Donbas region in the east and south, which are the main areas where Moscow-backed forces have territory.

In his nightly address, Mr Zelenskyy stated that “stabilization measures” were in place in liberated villages and towns.

“Remnants from occupiers and other sabotage groups have been detected and collaborators are being held. Full security is being restored,” said he, adding that border guards were sent to “protect the state border in liberated territory”.

He stated, “It is important that together our troops, with the flag, ordinary, regular life enters into de-occupied territory.”

Officials of the country were optimistic and released footage showing them inspecting abandoned, charred tanks and burning Russian flags.

Border guards ripped down a poster saying: “We are one nation with Russia” in one video.

British intelligence reports claimed that one of Russia’s most powerful forces, the 1st Guards Tank Army had been “severely damaged” by the invasion along with other conventional Russian forces meant to counter NATO.

Officials stated that Russia will need to rebuild its capability over the next several years.

According to Abbas Gallyamov (an independent Russian political analyst who was formerly a speechwriter for Vladimir Putin), the setback could renew Russia’s interest at peace talks.

Even if Putin was to come to the table to negotiate, President Zelenskyy made it clear that Russia must return all Ukrainian territories, including Crimea. Mr Gallyamov stated.

Experts warn that momentum can shift back and forth, and Ukraine’s allies were cautious not to declare victory too soon, as Mr Putin still has troops, resources, and support.

Washington: President Joe Biden stated to reporters that it was evident that the Ukrainians had made significant progress.

He did not say that recent victories were a turning point in war, but he said “the question remains unanswered, it’s difficult to tell.”

He said, “I believe it’s going be a long-term,”

Russia’s defense ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov stated that troops are responding with “massive strike” in all areas, despite the worst defeat it has suffered since the failed attempt to capture Kyiv in the early stages of the war.

However, there was no immediate report of an increase in Russian-related attacks.

After the retreat, Ukrainian authorities entered several areas to investigate the alleged atrocities perpetrated by Russian troops against civilians.

As the US state department revealed that more than PS260m had been secretly spent by Russia to influence politicians in more than two dozen countries, the consolidation of territorial gains is evident.

The unusual move by the department was to release a diplomatic cable signed and signed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It was sent Monday to many US consulates and embassies around the world, including many in Europe, Africa, and South Asia.

The cable was marked as sensitive and was not intended to be seen by foreign audiences, but it was not classified. It contained a number of talking points that US diplomats were directed to bring up with their host countries regarding the alleged Russian interference.
