"Fascinating Yalta is a real pearl of Crimea. Crimea is a real pearl of the Ukrainian state. I am confident that a blue and yellow flag will be raised in Yalta and across Crimea and the Ukrainian hymn will be performed," the Head of State posted on Facebook.
The Day of Yalta city is celebrated on the second Saturday in August.
The Crimean peninsula was illegally annexed from Ukraine by the Russian Federation in February–March 2014
