Oleksiy Kuleba, the head of Kyiv oblast administration, stated this.

"Today, special services examined all populated areas of the oblast, which were under occupation, for the presence of explosive objects. These are 270 cities, villages and towns within Bucha, Brovary and Vyshhorod districts of Kyiv oblast.
