LEADER DECLARES THE FULL LIBERATION OF LUHANSK PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC - JULY 3, 2022.
"Dear compatriots! Citizens of the Luhansk People's Republic! Today, July 3, is a great day, which will forever enter the red date in the calendar of our Fatherland. Today is the day we have accomplished what we have been striving to for eight long years. Today our troops, with the support of the Russian armed forces, liberated the town of Lysychansk, thus completing the liberation of the Republic within its historic borders.
The Ukrainian neo-Nazis, who came to our land to kill and plunder, have been defeated. They used sneaky tactics, using civilians as human shields. Therefore, our military had to carefully recapture literally every house, every street, every settlement. And now, finally, such big cities of Luhansk region as Rubizhne and Severodonetsk were also taken, and today Lisichansk was completely liberated!
I sincerely congratulate us all on this new Great Victory Day! This holiday, just like in the distant 1945, also with tears in my eyes - the battles were hard and bloody. And Victory is ours again, it will always be so!
