Some supermarkets, shopping centers and markets in Kyiv will continue to work even if there is full blackout, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said in a post on Telegram on Dec. 2.
"The enemy is cunning. It will continue to commit genocide against Ukrainians, trying to destroy the key infrastructure facilities and utilities of Ukrainian cities and villages,” the mayor said.
“The capital's businesses and authorities are getting ready for various scenarios, including the worst," he said.
He had earlier warned that Russia may try to achieve the complete shutdown of all utilities in Kyiv through its civilian infrastructure bombing campaign.
The mayor of the capital published the full list of addresses, calling the citizens to save it so they can find a place in case of no Internet connection. Working hours can be shortened.
The list of supermarkets is here, shopping centers here, and markets here.
Russia on Oct. 10 launched in earnest a campaign to destroy civilian infrastructure in Ukraine ahead of winter, with the apparent aim of denying Ukraine’s civilian population power, heating and water.
In the latest big attack of its bombing campaign on Nov. 23, Russian cruise missiles knocked out power, heating and water in much of the country. Kyiv was particularly badly affected, with 31 of the 67 cruise missiles launched by Russia aimed at the Ukrainian capital.
Parts of Kyiv were left without power and water for days in the wake of the attack, while heating was restored to most parts of the city within a day or so.
The Ukrainian government has warned the public that Russia may be preparing to launch another mass missile attack on Ukraine.
