Ukraine’s ministry of defence released footage on Monday showing government troops in Slovyansk shortly after they recaptured the city from pro-Russian insurgents.
The footage showed troops at abandoned rebel checkpoints, ammunition that rebels had apparently left behind, and several men being detained, some in uniform.
It also showed soldiers handing out food and water to residents of Slovyansk.
Slovyansk, a former stronghold of the pro-Russian insurgents, was retaken by Ukrainian troops on Saturday after an intense night of fighting.
