"From October 16, Kyiv begins the heating season. We approved this decision taking into account the average daily temperatures. According to forecasts, from next week a cold snap is coming to us: at night the temperature will drop to +3 ... + 5 degrees," Klitschko said.
He added that it will take about a week for the system in Kyiv to fully launch the centralized heating system.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine is 90% ready for the autumn-winter heating season, and fuel reserves at thermal power plants are consistently high.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal noted that after the appointment, the government immediately made it a priority to ensure all conditions for the successful preparation and passage of winter.
"All Ukrainian families, kindergartens, schools, and hospitals should be provided with heat in winter. We have all the conditions for this. Today we see consistently high fuel reserves at thermal power plants, and w also have record gas reserves," Shmygal said.
