Maryna Martynenko, spokeswoman for the Department of Emergency Services in the Odesa oblast, added that many fires now appear due to short circuits, which occur due to constant power outages.
“Now there is no safe equipment. We hear every day about TV sets on fire, boilers on fire, washing machines on fire. When they turn on the electricity supply, people turn on everything at once. That’s should not be done. Because of this, there is a huge overload. There is not a single day withoot fires due to overloading,” the spokeswoman added.
