Zelenskyy makes surprise visit to newly recaptured city of Izyum


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has made a surprise visit to Izyum, a newly retaken city in the north east of Ukraine, which has been left devastated by months of Russian occupation.

Mr Zelenskyy thanked troops who had helped to liberate the area – as they raised the Ukrainian flag over the city.

But to the south, Russia fired a salvo of rockets at Mr Zelenskyy’s hometown, Kryvyi Rih – in a direct attack on water supplies.
