Restored 1 of the Symbols of Kyiv

The capital's glass pedestrian bridge, which was damaged by missile fire on October 10, was reopened

October 10 — one of the worst Russian attacks on Ukraine. Dozens of drones and missiles flew into the capital, and 30 cities were hit in total. On this day, 1 of the missiles hit the modern symbol of Kyiv — a glass pedestrian bridge across the Dnipro river. At this time, there was 1 person on the bridge, and miraculously he was not injured.

According to Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klitschko, after whom the glass bridge is named, 18 glass panes on the floor, 143 double-glazed panes on the railings, metal cables and supports were replaced during the repair work. Today, the people of Kyiv can again walk and ride bicycles on the Klitschko bridge.

We remind you that on October 10, Vinnytsia, Lviv, Kirovohrad, Mykolaiv, Poltava, Ternopil, Zhytomyr and Kyiv regions suffered. Many people were injured, wounded and died. Municipal repair services eliminated all the infrastructure damage inflicted by Russia on the cities of Ukraine in 1 day.
