Kyiv Goes Quiet And Dark As The City’s Mayor Orders An Overnight Curfew

BUCHAREST, Romania – Ukraine’s capital city of Kyiv has gone dark and quiet late Thursday night.

The evening respite stands in stark contrast to a day marked by sporadic explosions and air raid sirens.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klischko announced a curfew from 10- p.m to 7 a.m., leaving the streets deserted and many buildings completely dark.

People across the city have either switched off their lights or drawn their curtains.

The city public transport system has also been shut down for the night, although all metro stations remain open and can be used as emergency shelters.
