The President noted that, despite the fact that Mariupol has to fight again, the Ukrainian flag will return to the city.
On the eighth anniversary of the liberation of Mariupol from pro-Russian terrorists, we are again fighting for it and all of Ukraine. As then, in 2014 Mariupol will be free again. The Ukrainian banner will return in the same way as in every city and village where the occupiers came. Because this is our country and our people,” Zelensky wrote.
The President also published a photo of Mariupol, which was practically destroyed by the Russians. The photo is painful to look at. The Russians turned the blooming city into ruins.

Latest news from Mariupol: what is the situation in the city
Russian invaders are trying to establish control in the captured Mariupol. The invaders treat the local population with disdain and continue to denigrate the beautiful, modern city.
The situation in the city is very difficult – local residents are still without electricity, gas and water. The occupiers are in no hurry to restore the destroyed infrastructure.
Instead, they undertook to de-Ukrainize the stele at the entrance to Mariupol – they changed the letter “i” to “i” – this is their maximum effort for the city.
This is at a time when the locals have nothing to eat. Thus, the Main Intelligence Directorate published new shocking data about the actions of Russian monsters in the occupied territories: the occupying authorities reduce the issuance of “humanitarian aid” so that residents remove rubble from the streets and hide the bodies of the dead in exchange for food.
Russians they force Mariupol residents to go through the so-called “filtering”. 4 filtration camps have been set up around the city, where people are kept in appalling conditions before being deported to Russia.
