There is not enough data to measure the air quality in Kyiv, as there are very few observation posts in Ukraine's capital. It was stated by the chairman of the All-Ukrainian ecological league Tetiana Tymochko on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Kyiv will not be able to compete with the Chinese giant cities, but I can say that the situation is quite intense. Even those observation posts that are located in Kyiv show a significant excess of indicators. The problem is that these posts are small, they do not cover the entire city, they do not take samples, do not calculate and do not identify all the pollutants and that is why we cannot have an objective assessment," she said.
According to Tymochko, smoke masses are transporting over long distances, and this is not only the Chornobyl zone, but also the fires in the Kyiv region.
As we reported earlier, according to the aqicn.org aggregator, the index of air quality in the Ukrainian capital is defined as "unhealthy".
"Everyone can start feeling consequences for their health; the extremely sensitive people can feel more serious consequences," the description reads.
