Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko said that the threat of shelling and provocations in Kiev remains high, but after May 9, citizens who fled the city may return home.
Radio "NV" reports about this.
"I recommend the Kyivites not hurry back to Kiev, taking into account the danger. The target of the aggressor was and remains the capital. There are lots of mined territories in the outskirts of the city, in the forest and park areas. The soldiers say that a large part of these territories remains unsafe. We still cannot guarantee safety, but after May 8-9 people can return to the capital," Klitschko said.
The mayor explained that they decided not to impose a long-lasting curfew on May 8-9 . The city authorities hope that these days will pass without shelling of the occupiers and panic among the population, but provocations by the enemy cannot be excluded.
We would like to remind you that on May 8 and 9 , any mass events on the territory of Kiev are forbidden. Additionally, the military and law forces will ensure increased patrolling of the city.
Klitschko also said that about 200 residential buildings in the capital have been damaged by shelling. A total of 46 schools, 30 kindergartens and some 70 municipal infrastructure facilities were damaged.
