Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskiy has travelled to the Kharkiv region and said “stabilisation measures” were still ongoing in recently liberated areas.

Mr Zelenskiy on Wednesday visited the newly recaptured town of Izium, a key supply hub in the northeastern region, a Ukrainian military brigade said, following the departure of Russian troops a few days ago.

“The president of Ukraine thanked the soldiers for liberating Ukrainian lands, and solemnly raised the Ukrainian flag over the city council,” the 25th Separate Airborne Sicheslav Brigade said in a statement on its Facebook page.
