The heating season has started

In Kharkiv, central heating has already been provided to hospitals and other social facilities. Heating in the residential buildings will be turned on when the average daily temperature drops below 8 degrees Celsius.

In Kharkiv Oblast:

  • The heating has been provided for the central hospital in Chuhuiv, everything is ready for the start of the heating season in the city;
  • The gas supply has been restored in Vovchansk, all boiler houses are ready for operation. In the absence of gas, they will use the alternative fuel;
  • The repair works in Kupiansk and Izium are underway. The situation with heating is difficult, as the occupiers have stolen a large amount of equipment for boiler houses, and destroyed the infrastructure.

According to the head of Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Syneyhubov, an emergency scheme in case of disconnection of the separate boiler houses has been developed. “We bought everything necessary for temporary heating in case of any accidents”.

A family-style orphanage created in Kharkiv
