Quote: "The situation as regards electricity supply to consumers in the capital is difficult today.
Apparently, every resident of Kyiv is feeling it now. But most importantly, temporary blackouts help energy companies stabilise the power grid. Preventing a mass blackout.
The important thing is that the temporary blackouts that are being effected now are controlled."
- Vitalii Klychko, Mayor of Kyiv, has not ruled out a complete power outage in Kyiv with no electricity, heating, water or communications. He is calling on Kyiv residents to stock up on essentials and to consider temporarily moving out of the city.
- Later, The New York Times, citing Roman Tkachuk, Director of the Department of Municipal Security of the Kyiv City Administration, wrote that the city plans to evacuate 3 million people from Kyiv if there would be a complete blackout.
- However, Tkachuk later assured residents that as of 6 November, everything is under control in Kyiv, and there is currently no reason to talk about a possible evacuation of residents.
- Klychko assured that today [6 November] there are no reasons for panic, residents of Kyiv live and work.
