Ukrainians have regained control of the entire Kyiv region after Russian forces withdrew from key towns near the capital, Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Ganna Maliar announced on Saturday. The localities of “Irpin, Boutcha, Gostomel and the entire kyiv region have been liberated from the invader”, she said on Facebook. All these cities were devastated by the fighting that raged there after the start of the Russian invasion on February 24

The Ukrainians declared on Monday that they had reconquered Irpin, in Russian hands since the end of February. And AFP journalists were able to go to Boutcha on Saturday, also very recently “liberated” and which had been inaccessible to the press for almost a month. Russian forces are operating a “rapid withdrawal” from the Kyiv and Cherniguiv regions in northern Ukraine, with the aim of redeploying east and south, the Ukrainian government said on Saturday.
