Roman Tkachuk, the director of Kyiv's security department, denied the information that Kyiv was allegedly planning to evacuate the population over complete blackouts in the capital.

“The civil protection system must be ready for various options, but this does not mean that we are now preparing to conduct an evacuation,” Tkachuk said.
