According to the statement on July 25 by “Donbas” territorial defense battalion commander Semen Semenchenko, Lysychansk is liberated. All night through the battalion fighting groups were establishing control over distant areas of the city.
Now that the entire city is liberated from terrorists, the local residents rejoice and thank Ukrainian soldiers. They feel glad that terrorist gangs either have been eradicated or retreated from the city.
In the course of the anti-terrorist operation some hostages have been released. In addition, the ATO forces managed to liberate the captured earlier second-in-command of the National Guard brigade which had fought for the city.
Besides, Semen Semenchenko emphasized that there is a lot of disinformation in the Internet; militants try to spread panic among civilians. For example, they post to social network that “Donbas” battalion is destroyed and its commander is killed.
The commander pointed out that the enemies have no chances to “kill” Ukraine because the perished soldiers will be replaced by thousands of the new ones. Ukraine has changed, its people have consolidated and become stronger.
