"There are no grounds for panic. Sudden temperature increase is not expected, and with night temperature of 0-3 degrees, negative consequences are hardly probable," he said.
At the same time, the official does not rule out a possibility of flooding of ground territories and separate residential buildings in bottomland. Chechetkin noted that all necessary measures are being taken to provide unhampered flood discharge and to protect river structures. To make ice movement go smoothly, pyrotechnic mixtures might be used.
In turn, head of a rescue team Mykola Kravchuk says pyrotechnic interference is inevitable. "If we do not take such measures, river structures may be destroyed by ice," he said.
As reported, Emergency Control Service reported risks of flooding in 11 regions of Ukraine and in the city of Kyiv. Currently in Kyiv, there are about 240 houses, located in areas at risk.
