Vandals broke two sections of glass on a new bridge with a transparent floor, opened in Kyiv yesterday. This was announced by city mayor Vitaliy Klitschko on his Facebook page.
“Today, a few hours ago, the glass suddenly broke on two fragments of the glass floor. It just couldn’t happen, considering its thickness and characteristics. The main version that is being considered is an act of vandalism. It is possible that mechanical damage could occur at the bottom of the glass (bridge). A version of shooting was being considered, "the mayor wrote.
“Saying that I am angry is saying nothing! I know that there are many ill-wishers of the fact that positive changes are taking place in Kyiv. But such sabotage is a crime. And they will have a hard answer. I appealed to the law enforcement bodies to urgently find out the reasons and give a legal assessment of what happened," Klitschko concluded.
On the photo from the scene it is clear that the glass did not break completely, numerous cracks in the form of a cobweb appeared on it.
May 25, Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko officially opened a new pedestrian-bicycle bridge between the Volodymyrska Hill and the People's Friendship Arch. The mayor of the city, together with his brother, decided to prove the strength of the glass from which the floor of the viewing platforms was made. The Klitschko brothers together jumped on the glass and it survived.
