Kyiv mayor on preparations for heating season: I believe we’ll cope

Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko, speaking about preparations for autumn and winter, including about providing the capital with electricity and heat, expressed his belief that the authorities will succeed in ensuring supplies.

Klitschko addressed the issue, speaking at a TV show.

I can promise one thing – that my team and I will do everything to ensure that all services available to the people of Kyiv (including electricity and heat – ed.) are provided in full, in the same parameters as in pre-war times. It’s a very difficult situation, I agree (in the conditions of a full-scale Russian invasion – ed.), there are a lot of unknown components, and plenty of challenges. But I think we will cope, – Klitschko said.

As reported, the Minister for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine, Oleksiy Chernyshov, assured that the 2022/2023 heating season would start on time, and that the tariffs would not go up.

OJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine will allocate UAH 8.5 billion, which the company received after the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers to reduce from 95% to 30% the basic rate of dividend payments, for the purchase of gas for the upcoming heating season.

Ukrainian NGO «Strategic Vision» promote economic, infrastructural and mental reconstruction of Ukraine.
