Kyiv Administration managed to deal with the snowstorm – it took only one day to clear all the roads, which is a good accomplishment. Arseniy Finberg, famous Kyiv blogger and volunteer, wrote about this on his Facebook page, and he was supported by other Kyiv residents.
“Of course, you will say I am a “klitschkobot” (a bot - person, who imposes opinion, often for money - ed.), but I just drove from Obolon to Poznyaky, and “grannie-is-shocked” – all the roads are clear. Really, all is clear. Respect, Klitschko – Mayor,” Finberg wrote. He added, that it is a good accomplishment to clear the city in one day.
Other Kyiv residents supported the blogger in comments, mentioning that the community utilities cleared not only the roads but also the pavements.
“Yesterday I went out for a walk and I saw an army of workers on pavements, I couldn’t resist, so I stopped to thank them, - first surprise, then a smile…,” Olga Grygorenko said.
Other users noticed plenty of snow-clearing equipment on the roads.
“There were lots of equipment on the roads yesterday evening,” Vitaliy Biletsky noted.
Nataliya Prusova agreed with him, though she said, that pavements still needed some cleaning”: “Yesterday morning workers with equipment were cleaning the snow in Lisovyi. All roads are clean, pavements – not everywhere, but you can easily walk there”.
Kyiv residents noticed that other city boroughs are clean as well.
“I agree! I myself wanted to write about the "victory" in Podil. A small vehicle was clearing pavements from yesterday morning,” Natalia Sklyarska informed.
Users mentioned an interesting tendency in social networks – we always blame authorities for mistakes, and we never notice their accomplishments.
“I was driving and thinking that people always write s**t when it’s not clean, but when it is – nobody even cares to write about it,” Igor Shorop noted.
Mykhaylo Shylin supported him: “When the roads are not cleared – it’s mayor’s fault when they are cleaned – they say, like, was it Klitschko himself to clean them with a shovel?”.
As Kyiv residents noticed, Vitaliy Klitschko appeared to be the first mayor to cope with the snowstorm.
“Come on, people – let us recall Popov or Chernovetskyi, under the administration of the last one nobody dealt with the municipal problems,” Anatoly Savchenko reminded.
