Kyiv’s new lockdown has caused massive traffic jams yesterday morning, leading to traffic gridlock in westbound lanes on the four bridges across the Dnipro,
delaying access to and from Kyiv Boryspil Airport. The Metro is to run during the 2-week lockdown, but access is limited to about 600,000 people working in ‘critical’ jobs. In addition to health care, these sectors include energy, chemical industry, transport, banking, telecommunications, food, and utilities. Employers are asked to shift to remote work as much as possible.
