Deputy Chairman of the Kyiv City Council Petro Panteleyev said that this winter the temperature in the homes of Kyiv residents will be the same as in the past.

He told about this in an interview with Economic Truth media outlet.

"The fact is that the cityʼs centralized heat supply system is designed and constructed in such a way that it cannot provide less than certain indicators. I think the temperature will be around 18 degrees," he said.

Now the city is starting heat with setting the parameters. Heat is supplied to cold houses, and in the so-called return pipeline, the temperature is much lower than the norm. Everything will stabilize no earlier than in two weeks.

  • The heating season in Kyiv began on October 20. Then the mayor announced that the city had completed all the necessary preparatory work. According to Klitschko, the city increased the number of emergency and rescue services by 10%, purchased additional equipment and materials.
  • This winter is expected to be the most difficult in all the years of independence — because of Russian shelling.
  • The head of JSC Naftogaz Yuriy Vitrenko previously warned that the temperature in the premises will be four degrees lower than normal, and the heating season will start later and end earlier than usual. He criticized the start of the heating season in Kyiv.
