Mykola Chechotkin, the Head of the State Emergency Service reported this on Facebook.

"The anti-cyclonic nature of weather is holding in Ukraine; it leads to the absence of precipitation, weak winds, the increase of air temperature at the altitude of 700-800 meters from the ground level, absence of vertical mixture of air and thick clouds. These factors facilitate the amassment of the toxic substances in the lower layers of the atmosphere", he wrote.
