Kyiv has recently received new anti-air equipment, Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko told municipal TV channel Kyiv on Oct. 28.

"The military assures us that new air defense systems are already in place in the capital,” said Klitschko.

“(our skies) will be more secure. We hope that there will be no more attacks and provocations with kamikaze drones.”

Commenting on the restoration of nominal power supply in Kyiv after the series of Russian air and drone strikes, Klitschko said that it will take up to two to three weeks. Currently, power shortage in the capital ranges from 25 to 50%.
