60 working groups will check the shelters of Vinnytsia Ukraine news 03 Jun 2023 at 16:01

On June 3rd and 4th, 60 working groups consisting of police officers, State Emergency Service (SES) personnel, and municipal guards will inspect the city's shelters in Vinnytsia. This decision was made today during a meeting of the municipal commission for technogenic and ecological safety and emergencies. The primary focus of these inspections will be on the accessibility of these shelters. Vinnytsia City Council is supervising this process. They will inspect shelter facilities throughout the city, with a total of 1,236 locations included in the list.

This urgent inspection follows the tragic events on June 1st in the capital of Ukraine when three people died near a closed shelter. Criminal proceedings have been initiated against those responsible for restricting access to the shelter. This situation should serve as a warning for all individuals who keep shelter facilities locked in buildings, municipal establishments, and commercial properties. The Department of Civil Protection is urging facility owners and those responsible for shelters to maintain them properly and keep them accessible during air raid alerts.

Vinnytsia will also update its online map of shelter locations in response to the growing threat from missile strikes and kamikaze drones within Ukraine. Oleg Parfilyov, the director of the Department of Civil Protection, stated: "Given the increasing frequency of enemy missile attacks and kamikaze drone strikes in Ukraine and the complaints from Vinnytsia residents, we have decided to promptly reinspect structures where one can seek shelter during air raid alerts. You can report locked or improperly maintained shelters by using the provided link or contacting the 'Round-the-Clock Duty': 15-60; 0-800-60-15-60; (0432) 65-15-60; (0432) 59-50-39; (0432) 60-15-60."
