During the demonstration in Lviv, relatives of the defenders of “Azovstal” called on the President of Turkey and the Secretary General of the United Nations, who came to Ukraine to help freeing Ukrainian servicemen from captivity. Unidentified civilians who died during the occupation of the city are buried at the central cemetery in Bucha. Sappers continue demining the liberated areas.
