Volodymyr Zelenskyy is preparing for aggressive measures and bloodshed in Donbas. The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, held a meeting with the new commander of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who was Major General Grigory Galagan.
The largest flag of Ukraine was torn during its first week of display in Kyiv. Communal workers in Kyiv lowered the largest flag of Ukraine. According to the Vesti.ua portal, the flag set a week ago was lowered “for technical reasons.” As workers of municipal services say, the flag began to tear. Whether from the wind, or from the quality of the material – it is not clear.
An attempt by pro-Kremlin media to try to undermine Ukraine's statehood ahead of its most patriotic days of the year: 23 August is National Flag Day, followed the next day by Ukraine's Independence Day.
The published story is just not true.
The statement in the media was denied by the local authorities in Kyiv. The Mayor of the capital, Vitaliy Klitschko denied reports that Ukraine's largest flag has been allegedly damaged, noting that the flag, like the flagpole on which it is flown, is in excellent condition:
Work should be carried out regularly to check the condition of the flagpole and the flagpole's engineering structure. Today, for the first time since the opening of the memorial, such work was carried out. So the flag is undamaged, the flagpole is in excellent condition. The main flag proudly flies over Kyiv.
Previously, the largest national flag was hoisted on the highest flagpole, on 22 August. The height of the flagpole is almost 90 metres. The flag itself is 24 metres by 16 metres.
