Kyiv mayor Klitschko hits back at Zelenskyy criticisms

Former professional boxer Vitali Klitschko was the mayor of Kyiv and has been arguing with Ukraine’s president about how to help residents survive power cuts.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy criticized Mr Klitschko last week over provision of emergency shelters. This is a sign that discontent has never been seen among Ukrainian leaders since the invasion of Russia.

The president implied Mr Klitschko had not done enough to help the capital’s residents deal with Moscow’s most destructive strikes of war.

Mr. Zelenskyy stated that most of the Ukraine regions had been affected by blackouts but that Kyiv was experiencing some of the “greatest problems”.


He stated that “Unfortunately, local authorities are not performing well in all areas”.

He said that there were many complaints about the capital’s measures.

Now, however, Mr Klitschko is retaliating and calling their disagreements “senseless” in the midst of Russia’s military campaign.

He stated that 430 “warming centers” are helping Kyiv residents to cope with the Russian attack on power stations. More than 100 were also planned for extreme circumstances.

Another development is that the head of Ukraine’s state-run nuclear energy company has stated that there are signs Russian forces may be planning to leave the huge Zaporizhzhia power plant. They seized it in March, shortly after their invasion.

Image In the wake of fears that the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant was unsafe due to war scars, the International Atomic Energy Agency visited the site.

This would mark a significant battlefield shift in the partially-occupied Zaporizhzhia area, where the frontline has barely moved for several months.

Fears of a nuclear disaster have been raised by repeated shelling at the plant.
