The process of shutting down the heating in Kyiv residential buildings will begin on April 5. Such order was issued by the Kyiv City State Administration (KCSA), as its deputy chairman Petro Panteleyev wrote on Facebook.
“We will wait for the traditional April 15 to end the heating season so that the people of Kyiv can save money as much as possible. Especially given the difficult financial condition of people under strict quarantine and a number of restrictions designed to protect citizens from coronavirus infection,” Panteleyev said.
He noted that, according to the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center, starting next week, the average daily temperature will be above +8 degrees Celsius, which is the reason we can complete the heating season. And it takes 2-3 days to wind up a central heating system with a length of heating networks of more than 2.7 km.
"Therefore, we are starting shutting the system now to synchronize the shutdown with warming," the deputy chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration added.
As it was reported, schools and kindergartens in Kyiv were disconnected from heating on March 25. Due to anti-epidemic measures in the city, metropolitan schools and kindergartens remain empty.
