"Lysychansk is taken. The terrorists (Lysychansk garrison of the great Don Cossack Host) skedaddled. Thanks to Battalion Donbas and 24th Armed Forces brigade soldiers. They are our younger brothers by the age but they are superior to us in patience, courage, stamina. Eternal memory to all those killed during the capture of the city. The locals are asked not to leave their houses. It is still unsafe. Glory to Ukraine! " he wrote.
"Ukrainian flag is raised over the Lysychansk City Council!" the activists reported on Euromaidan group on Facebook.
