As it was reported earlier 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. Other Kyiv residents supported the blogger in comments, mentioning that the community utilities cleared not only the roads but also the pavements. Other users noticed plenty of snow-clearing equipment on the roads.
