Ukraine celebrates Flag Day

18:57, 23 August 2017

On August 23, Ukrainians celebrate the Flag Day.

The blue and yellow banner was solemnly hoisted in a number of locations in Kyiv and many other cities in Ukraine.

The ones who raised the flag in Kyiv were the Ukrainian warriors who three years ago liberated towns and cities of the occupied Donbas.

Back then, they hoisted the state flags in Zolote, Krasnyi Lyman, Stanytsia Luhanska and Toretsk.
