We are doing everything to prevent blackout in Kyiv - Klitschko

The capital's authorities are doing everything they can to ensure that power, heat and communication do not disappear due to Russia's actions.

Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko said this during a nationwide telethon on Ukrainian TV Channels on Saturday.

"We are doing everything to prevent this, but let's be honest, our enemies are doing everything to leave the city without heat, without electricity, without water supply," he said, when asked about  possible blackout in Kyiv.

Klitschko noted that the Kyiv city authorities are considering various scenarios so that to be ready for any events. In particular, the city has prepared a stock of diesel fuel, power generators, food and drinking water, as well as heating points.

At the same time, he called on Kyiv residents to make necessary preparations too.

"We will do everything so that such a scenario does not happen, but we cannot guarantee it, so each of us must also be prepared to react as quickly as possible," the mayor said.
