Video obtained by Reuters, October 5, 2022, shows Ukrainian troops raising the country's flag in what it identified as the recently recaptured village of Borova.
The geolocated footage shows men - some in Ukrainian military uniform, some in civilian clothes - attaching the blue and yellow flag to a pole and raising it next to the town's welcome sign.
Borova was among a few small villages recaptured from pro-Russian troops in recent advances by the Ukrainian military.
