It will be a daunting task to make the national flag reappear in the occupied cities and towns of Donbas and Crimea, according to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.


"It will be an extremely difficult task for us to make our flag reappear over the cities of Donetsk, Luhansk, Simferopol and Sevastopol," Poroshenko said during a ceremony to mark the raising of the national flag at Sofia Square in Kyiv, according to a UNIAN correspondent.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko earlier congratulated the country on the Day of the National Flag.

"Blue-yellow color and chevrons are a symbol of the courage of our defenders," the president stated in a congratulatory message posted on Facebook.
