Jan 17, 2023

According to the mayor of Kiev, due to the destruction by the Russian military of Ukraine's critical infrastructure and sub-zero temperatures, the situation in the capital is approaching critical.


The collapse of Ukraine's energy infrastructure due to constant rocket attacks by the Russian Armed Forces could happen any second. This statement was made by Kiev mayor Vitaliy Klitschko during the World Economic Forum in Davos.

According to him, Kiev's infrastructure could collapse at any second, as Russia's sporadic missile strikes, along with low winter temperatures, create more and more stress.

"We are not talking about collapse, but it can happen at any second (because, - ed.) Russian missiles can destroy our critical infrastructure in Kiev," Klitschko said.

The mayor of Kiev specified that already now in the Ukrainian capital energy deficit is 30%.

"It is now quite cold in Ukraine, so it is almost impossible to live without electricity and heating. The situation is critical. We are fighting for survival," Klitschko added on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
