The State Border Service of Ukraine confirmed the liberation of the city of Vovchansk in the Kharkiv region from the Russian occupation.

"Vovchansk is at home," the message reads.

Attached to the message is a video showing destroyed Russian equipment and Ukrainian servicemen removing Russian propaganda from billboards and facades of buildings in the city.

Vovchansk is located 3 kilometers from the border with Russia. It was occupied on the first day of the Russian Federationʼs full-scale invasion of Ukraine — February 24. During the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian military, the occupiers moved their "regional administration" to the city for a few days.
