“Two fire souses have been eliminated this morning near Berezhest and Hladkovychi villages in the Zhytomyr region. Other contained fire sourses are not dangerouse, there is no open fire there. The stumps and wood are still being shed, as well as fire trails are being created, ”said the director of the Department of Emergency Response.
The head of the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center Mykola Kulbida informed that during the past day in the territory of the Exclusion Zone and in the north of the Zhytomyr region the weather conditions have not changed significantly.
"The movement of combustion products, that are emitted into the atmosphere, is going southward at a speed of 10-15 km/h: from the Exclusion Zone - to the western district of the Kiev region, and from the northern districts of the Zhytomyr region - towards Korosten and Zhytomyr towns," he noticed.
“The chemical air pollution in Kyiv is mainly at a level typical for April. Exceedance of the maximum permissible concentrations for nitrogen dioxide, as well as partly for sulfur dioxide and formaldehyde, is observed. Radioactive contamination in Kyiv and Zhytomyr regions remains within the natural background. Air migration of cesium-137 has not been recorded, ”the speaker added.
Nikolay Kulbida noted that the direction of the wind in the coming days will be variable.
