"Our Irpin has been liberated from the Moscow evil!!! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to its defenders! Eternal memory to the fallen Heroes!" Irpin Mayor Oleksandr Markushyn posted on Facebook.
At the same time, he asked the residents not to return to the town for some time.
"We have good news today. Today, Irpin has been liberated. Now the clean-up is underway. I appeal to our residents: it is still impossible to return to Irpin, it is still dangerous. We gain a foothold on our new frontiers and will continue to advance and liberate Bucha, Hostomel, Vorzel. We understand that there will be more attacks on our town. And we will courageously defend it. Irpin is Ukraine!” the mayor emphasized.
He thanked the liberators of Irpin, in particular the service members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Territorial Defence Forces, and the National Police. "We are strong when we are together!" Markushin emphasized.
