The Ukrainian flag was officially raised over the liberated city of Lyman in the country’s east. The commander of the Ground Forces Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi transferred authority from the military to the Donetsk Oblast Administration.
However, it’s too early for civilians to return to the area, Oblast head said. There is still a large part of demining work ahead while many heating, electricity, and other pipelines were destroyed.
