Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko urged citizens to prepare for a “bad scenario” and stockpile technical and drinking water, as well as food and warm clothes. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
He recommended temporarily moving to houses in the suburbs of Kyiv, where there is a stove and independent water supply, and turning to acquaintances and friends who have such housing with a request for temporary residence.
According to him, some citizens can be taken out of Kyiv. “Children’s homes, homes for the elderly, we do not exclude this,” Klitschko said.
Earlier it was reported that 70 percent of the housing stock in Kyiv is disconnected from the power supply, and work to restore the supply of heat to the houses of citizens is still ongoing. As the power engineers said, the light in the Ukrainian capital will be given for two to three hours until the amount of energy coming to Kyiv increases.
Earlier, as reported by Parliamentary Gazeta, Ukrenergo reported that almost all thermal and hydroelectric power plants in the country were damaged.
