Speaking on July
6 at a military base in Izium, some 50 kilometers north of Sloviansk, Heletey
said a sense of normality was being restored to the city that had served as the
focal point of the armed conflict since it broke out almost three months ago.

“When we entered Sloviansk there were a lot of people waiting for us who
were tortured by hunger, tortured by the lack of water,” he said. 

The government said it was starting to restore infrastructure in the city, including water and electricity supply, as of today. The president’s press service said Ukrainian flags were also flying over Artemivsk and Druzhkivka as government troops recaptured those cities on July 6.
