Kiev residents use electric heaters to keep homes warm

Residents of the Ukrainian capital do not even hope that Kiev authorities will be able to solve problems with heating and hot water supplies. In the coming heating season, temperatures in Kiev apartments may fall down to +16C, which is two degrees below the allowable level. Residents of the city already use electric heaters and warm clothes to get warm in their homes.

LifeNews correspondents talked to Kiev resident Alexander Atrashchenko, who said that in his apartment б he uses several heaters that work in shifts. The man also uses an electric stove and dryer.

"We replaced our gas stove and now use the electric one, and we turn it on to get warm too. A lot depends on the weather, of course. It's a lot warmer on sunny days. For the time being, we turn heaters on, one after another," the man said.

Alexander's family is bracing up for impressive electricity bills, as one will have to turn all electric heaters on when it gets cold.

The mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko, is aware of the problems that the city will have to face in winter. Back in August, he asked people to understand the insufficient heat supply.

According to experts, in the 2013 heating season, Ukraine used 38 billion cubic meters of gas. Presently, Ukraine has 23 billion cubic meters of the required 30. The Ukrainians plan to receive the remaining amount with the help of reverse supplies from Poland, Hungary and Slovakia.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
