We were close to calling on the population to evacuate - Klitschko

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said in an interview with RND that "we were close to calling on the population to evacuate"

"The worst blackout lasted 14 hours. There was no electricity, water, heating. Fortunately, the weather was mild," he recalled.

The critical infrastructure of Kyiv survived the winter, he said, thanks to the round-the-clock work of power engineers and public utilities. 

The German Iris-T SLM air defense system helped protect the infrastructure from strikes, he said.

Recall that at the end of November, Klitschko said that in the event of a deterioration in the situation in the capital, evacuation would be required.
