The Ukrainian flag has been raised on Mount Boyka in Russian-occupied Crimea by members of the "Yellow Ribbon" civil resistance movement.

"With this action, we aim to reiterate that Crimea is Ukrainian land!” the partisans posted on Telegram on Wednesday, November 15.

They added: “We eagerly await the arrival of the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Our indefinite protest will persist until the objective is achieved.”

Photographs showcase a prominent Ukrainian flag set against the backdrop of the mountains.

The partisans said the Ukrainian flag now waves over Crimea's peak and soon they anticipate its presence on all administrative buildings across the peninsula "because Crimea is Ukraine."

Furthermore, yellow ribbons adorned the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea and the Fiolent stadium in Simferopol.


Partisans distributed leaflets and created graffiti in residential areas of Sevastopol and Yalta.

"All of this symbolizes the resistance of steadfast Ukrainians, the activists of the Yellow Ribbon movement, who persist in their struggle despite numerous challenges," the message reads.

On August 23, the partisans planted the Ukrainian flag on Mount Shaan-Kaya in Crimea to mark Ukraine’s National Flag Day.
