"Kyiv is in the red zone. And the situation is getting worse. We have queues for the funeral service for death certificates. And queues at the crematorium. We have queues of ambulances in the admission departments of hospitals. Someone does not believe in this and says all sorts of nonsense?! Then go and see! Talk to doctors and relatives of patients. The main thing I call for: follow safety rules - masks, antiseptics, distance. Get vaccinated! Do not visit public places unnecessarily. Do not use public transport unless absolutely necessary," Klitschko said.
