The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

The Ukrainian national flag has been brought down over the Sevastopol City Council.

The event was met with jubilation by the crowds of people who gathered on Lenin Street where the city council is located.

There is now only the flag of Sevastopol on the city council's flagpole.

Earlier, a Ukrainian national flag was taken off the Sevastopol state administration. As a result, today there are no national flags on any of the administrative buildings in central Sevastopol.

The city council has not commented on this information yet. Attempts to reach the city council spokesperson by phone have been unsuccessful.
