There is no need to open the metro in Kyiv right now because it will be difficult to restrict its work, as 1+1 TV channel reported citing Ukraine’s Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Krykliy.

“A few days ago, the HQ gathered. When we considered the issue of the renewal of the metro’s work, we concurred that it will be very difficult to open it with the restrictions. If the underground opens, it should function fully. Of course, it is possible to hold disinfection, impose mask regime, and hold temperature screening. But it is quite difficult to restrict people at the platform and in the wagons. That is why I would not hurry with such a decision,” the minister said.

He noted that transport in Ukraine will start to work in a few stages. The dates of the stages are agreed by the Infrastructure Ministry with the Health Ministry.

As we reported,  Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky commented on the possibility of the renewal of the work of the metro, stating that it is not difficult to sign the paper and open the underground even tomorrow. However, the consequences of such a decision might be bad. Thus, the president responded to the request of Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko to the government on the renewal of the metro’s work in the usual mode from May 25
