Kyiv interested in Israeli technologies in city management

Kyiv is interested in Israeli technologies in the sector of city management. First of all, projects relate to energy and water saving, waste processing and introduction of Smart City technology.

Mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko said this during a meeting with Minister of Environmental Protection, Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Minister of Israel Ze'ev Elkin on Tuesday, the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration reported.

"Kyiv and Israel have an experience of successful cooperation. In particular, the Ukrainian capital has adopted several projects that were implemented in Tel Aviv. Today, the data center for processing of video surveillance data successfully operates in the capital. More than 6,000 surveillance cameras were installed. And we will develop these developments in the field of security. We are interested in the experience of Israel in the development of tourism potential under terrorist threats. We are very interested in cooperation in the tourism sector," Klitschko said.

He also thanked the minister for Israel’s support provided to Ukraine and for the unchanged position on the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

In turn, Ze'ev Elkin confirmed Israel's readiness to provide any assistance to Ukraine. In particular, he noted the interest to take part in the implementation of the project on construction of a modern waste-processing plant in Kyiv.

The parties also discussed the issue of creation of the memorial to the victims of Babi Yar in Kyiv. Klitschko expressed confidence that the memorial in the capital will be built in a few years.
