Point of Invincibility on Wheels

Kyivans turned a 2-section bus into a point of assistance for citizens

In the fall of 2022, Ukraine began to open Points of invincibility. Most often, these were state institutions that installed everything necessary to help Ukrainians in the event of blackouts of light and heat due to Russian missile strikes. Only in the capital of Ukraine in the last month of winter did 868 such points work, and thousands of people visited.

Recently, the Kyiv city military administration launched another project of "invincibility". They said that a modern bus would run in the capital, which, if necessary, would serve citizens. On improving the bus in Germany. There, the engineers converted a 2-section Mercedes bus: now it can work for more than 72 hours. Also, transport can accommodate up to 100 passengers. However, most importantly, people can warm up, charge their phones, and receive medical care. Also, the "invincibility" mobile point is equipped with an autonomous power supply, heating with thermal protection of windows, satellite Internet, and water.

"We need to look to the future. We have to be prepared for different scenarios. In winter, we built up a powerful system of indestructibility points. Now, most such stationary points will be transferred to "sleep mode". That is, if necessary, they will quickly return to fulfilling their function. Still, for now, they will unload the premises for the full implementation of their immediate tasks," said Serhii Popko, head of the military administration in Kyiv.

Recall that now Ukraine has returned to a stable electricity supply and is preparing to end the heating season. Thus, the "grandiose" Russian plan for the cold period failed. Ukrainians survived and won the fight against the aggressor.
