Rescuers of the State Emergency Service have no legal grounds for cutting locks on closed shelters.
First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Yevhenii Yenin informed about this on the air of the telethon, answering questions about the information from the KMDA that the rescuers will cut the locks from the shelters.
"According to the Code of Civil Protection, local administrations are responsible for the proper operation of shelter facilities. And in this case, it is worth clarifying that it was about the rescuers of the Kyiv Rescue Service, who probably have a well-developed algorithm for such actions," Yenin said.
According to him, citizens, for their part, have the right to report closed shelters.
According to the Civil Protection Code, local administrations are responsible for the proper operation of shelter facilities.
- The day before, the authorities of Kyiv announced that the capital would cut the locks of the shelters, which are closed during the air raid.
