On Aug. 23 President Volodymyr Zelensky  congratulated the Ukrainian people on Ukraine’s National Flag Day and assured them that the Flag of Ukraine will return to each city and village, which are now temporarily occupied by Russia.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a solemn ceremony of raising the National Flag of Ukraine in the city of Kyiv.

“The blue and yellow flag of Ukraine will fly again, where its home is. Where it should fly by right – in all the temporarily occupied settlements of Ukraine, those that are occupied temporarily. It will fly forever in Melitopol at Victory Square, where those who will lose this war cannot be. The blue and yellow flag will be there. In Kherson at Freedom Square – there cannot be a flag of those who do not know what freedom is. The blue and yellow flag will be there. It will fly on Azovskyi Avenue in Berdiansk and on Zelena Alley in Skadovsk, over the nuclear power plant in Enerhodar and over Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant, on the Adziogol Lighthouse and Savur-Mohyla, on the banks of the Siverskyi Donets and the Kalmius, near Oleshky Sands. There cannot be a flag of those who have heard these Ukrainian names for the first time,” the President of Ukraine declared.
