 Parents asked to leave children at home today, while Kyiv covered in smoke

Due to dense smoke resulting from the fire within Kyiv's 30-kilometer area, city authorities recommend parents not to take their children to kindergartens and schools today.

As reported by Censor.NET citing the Kyiv City State Administration press service, this was announced by the Deputy Head of the Kyiv City State Administration Hanna Starostenko.

"As there is a risk for combustion products from the fire in the Kyiv region to be spread over some districts of Kyiv, we recommend to refrain from taking children to kindergartens and schools. However, all schools will have duty groups for children who can not stay at home. They will be staying in for whole day," the deputy head said.
