The flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic was hoisted over the liberated Artemovsk by the region’s acting head Denis Pushilin, as he announced on his Telegram channel on May 23.
The flag was hoisted on one of the city’s remaining administrative buildings.
Pushilin also noted that he had returned to the city not only to hoist the DPR flag, but also to assess the scope of priority measures.
“Artemovsk has become the Russian city, and it will be restored,” he wrote, adding that he expressed his gratitude to “the Russian forces for carrying out the most difficult combat task.”
