The heating points in Kyiv will work around the clock, provided that there is an emergency situation with heating and other communications in the city.

This was announced by the mayor of Kyiv, Vitaliy Klitschko, on the air of the "Kyiv" TV channel.

"The point should work around the clock?... Then I have a question - do we really have a curfew at night? My task is to provide all services in Kyiv, and we do everything that depends on us in order to provide heat, light, and water supply. And this is a key priority for us," the mayor said.

Klitschko noted that he had given the task that the heating points should work until 9 o'clock in the evening, so that people who work there from morning to evening would have the opportunity to get home.

"If there is an emergency, then these points will work around the clock," he explained.

How will Kyiv live in the event of a blackout

In the event of an emergency, the capital will live and work, but in very difficult conditions.

In the event of a blackout and the resulting complete lack of electricity in the capital, buses will operate on all ground transport routes.

Travel will be free. 

If there are interruptions in the water supply, the capital will provide a system of backup sources of drinking water.

First of all, these are pump stations, most of which can be connected to generators.   

As for pharmacies and veterinary clinics, in the event of a complete blackout in Kyiv, the Farmatsiya KP network will work.

They are equipped with backup power sources and can work in the complete absence of power supply.
