“It is a critical time for this kind of support,” Vitali Klichkó stressed.

The mayor of kyiv, Vitali Klichkó, ​​urges the West to send blankets and heat generators to Ukraine so that the population can cope with this winter, as he declared in a interview with The Telegraph published this Friday.

Although Klichko acknowledged that Ukraine needs to get heavy weapons and air defense systems, he also stressed blankets, winter clothes and heat generators. “It is a critical moment for this type of support,” said the mayor of the Ukrainian capital.

“We are doing everything possible to save the lives of our people and to protect them,” said the senior official, who admitted that “this winter will definitely be a big challenge”.

The mayor of kyiv noted that the city authorities have already managed to buy a certain number of generators and have set up 1,000 mobile heating points, although they are still preparing for the “worst case scenario”.

Likewise, Klichkó indicated that he appreciates the support of Western countries, although he pointed out that military and humanitarian aid “takes too long” to reach Ukraine.

After the explosion recorded on the Crimean bridge on October 8, which was described by Russian President Vladimir Putin as a terrorist attack perpetrated by Ukraine, Russia has launched massive attacks against Ukrainian energy infrastructure.

According to Klichko, electricity shortage in kyiv sometimes reaches 50%.
