The increase of the number of fires over the past month has significantly affected the air condition in Kyiv. The Kyiv City State Administration reports this.

The first deputy head of the Kyiv Administration Mykola Povoroznyk noted that over 800 fires have occurred over the past month near the capital. Compared to previous month, this figure has grown by almost seven times.

"The problems of ecology and air pollution in Kyiv, as in any metropolis, are caused by a number of factors. In particular, the work of industrial enterprises, an increase in the number of cars, an increase in fire cases in the region and the like," Povoroznyk added.

Also, the deputy head of the Kyiv City Administration said that air monitoring is carried out daily, and special attention is paid to the areas where there is the greatest smoke - residential areas on the left bank of the capital.

Earlier we reported that the air quality control group will be created at Kyiv's Energia incineration plant. Petro Panteleev, the Deputy Head of Kyiv City State Administration said that.

"The air quality control will be functioning in the 24/7 mode, and the plant will also get a video surveillance system at a trash bunker. Operative decisions can only be made if there's objective information", he said.

The plant will also have a new sorting and recycling mechanism; this will let part of the trash be recycled, instead of being burned.

Panteleev added that several districts of Kyiv suffer from the foggy atmosphere. The major issue is pollution with contaminants produced by cars, which is why the most serious contamination of the atmosphere is observed near large roadways across Kyiv.
