On Friday in kyiv, train traffic was interrupted between the Lybidskaya and Demievskaya stations, located on the floodplain of the Lybid River. This was due to the depressurization of the tunnel and the appearance of cracks in its walls, which caused flooding.
According to the kyiv prosecutor’s office, a preliminary investigation has been launched into the fact of official negligence, which led to serious consequences. Within the framework of the investigation, a legal assessment will be carried out of the actions of kyiv metro officials and contractors who built the flooded tunnels.
For his part, the director of the Kiev metro, Viktor Braginsky, stated that the flooding could be due to the poor quality of the work of the general contractor, who completed the project without waterproofing the tunnel.
