The Mayor of Kew, former boxer Vitaly Klitschko, this Sunday (11.27.2022) responded to criticism by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who accused him of not doing enough to meet the energy needs of citizens. In the midst of a war against Russia, Meyer said, this kind of controversy makes no sense.
Klitschko said 430 “warming centers” were operating in the Ukrainian capital. Additionally, 100 more are planned if conditions worsen. Now, four days after the devastating blast, electricity is back in the entire city.
Days ago, in an unusual criticism, Zelenski assured that there was a lot of discomfort among citizens due to the measures adopted in the capital. “I don’t want to get into a political battle, especially not in the current situation,” Klitschko said in a video posted on Telegram. “It doesn’t make sense, I have things to do in town,” he added.
“We must be united”
Klitschko, who was embroiled in several disputes with Zelenskiy before the invasion, said the president’s allies had engaged in “manipulation” of Q’s efforts, including posting “incomprehensible photos” on social media.
“It’s not good, to put it mildly. It’s not good for Ukrainians or our foreign allies,” the mayor said. “Today, more than ever, we must unite and work together. Instead we are here before some political game.” In conversation with a German newspaper BuildKlitschko promised that the works were carried out in “record time”.
Zelensky launched thousands of “Invincible Centers” across Ukraine to provide citizens with heat, water, internet and mobile phones. In a video released late Friday, the president criticized Kyiv’s mayor for not doing enough to help citizens.
