"Let's be more conscious about the realities in which we have been living for more than a year, understand all the risks of our own frivolity. Otherwise, if the situation does not improve, the city authorities and the government will decide to stop public transport in the capital, then there will be a tougher lockdown," Klitschko said.

The mayor noted that today only those who need to get to work should use public transport.

As we reported earlier, transport will not be stopped in Kyiv due to lockdown. However, it will work in strict compliance with sanitary norms. The first Deputy Chairman of Kyiv City State Administration Mykola Povoroznyk reported this on Facebook.

He noted that the Commission on Technogenic and Environmental Safety and Emergencies of the Kyiv City State Administration has decided not to stop the work of public transport in the capital.

"Public transport will run with an occupancy of not more than 50% of the seats provided for in the technical characteristics of the vehicle and specified in the registration documents for such a vehicle," Povoroznyk said.
