Oleksandr Kamyshin, a senior Ukrainian government official, has expressed his ‘disbelief‘ after learning that nearly half of the bomb shelters in Kiev are closed or unfit for use.
Kamyshin, who is Ukraine’s Minister of Strategic Industries, announced that out of 1,078 bomb shelters in the Ukrainian capital, 359 were unprepared and another 122 locked – only 597 were “useable.”
“I greeted with disbelief the fact that half were open and considered ready… Yesterday, when we selectively checked the shelters in the Obolon district with our mayor, the absolute majority of the shelters were closed.”
– Oleksandr Kamyshin, Minister of Strategic Industries, Ukraine.
President Zelenksy ordered an inspection of all Ukrainian shelters on Friday, June 2 after three people were killed as a result of being unable to access the appropriate shelter.
Mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko, said on Friday that he bore “some responsibility but said others were also to blame.”
As of May 19th, the U.S. has directed more than $75 billion in assistance to Ukraine, including humanitarian, financial, and military aid, states the globalist Council on Foreign Relations.
There have been a number of concerns raised about the destination of U.S. financial assistance. Most notably, Seymour Hersh’s investigation into the Ukrainian government’s $400 million embezzlement scandal.
