Kyiv’s catering establishments will extend their working hours by one hour to 23:00, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on his Telegram channel on Wednesday. According to him, the decision was made by the Kyiv Defense Council. It will come into force on September 1.

“Representatives of the National Restaurant Association of Ukraine addressed the city authorities with this request. The decision to restrict the operation of establishments until 22:00 was made when the curfew in the capital began at 23:00. Now it starts at 00:00. During a meeting with the city authorities, where they justified the feasibility of such a decision, entrepreneurs emphasized that extending the opening hours of establishments would help improve the economic situation in the capital, create additional jobs, and increase revenues from taxes, fees, and payments to budgets of all levels,” Klitschko wrote.
