“Was spooky” – This is how the “Krone” felt in a fallout shelter


Editor Doris Vettermann was in Kiev with a delegation of European politicians when suddenly the missile alarm went off. “It was creepy,” she describes her feelings.

It was spooky,” says colleague Doris Vettermann via a signal number on the phone. “Suddenly the guards got nervous, pushed everyone into the cars and then we rushed to the Hotel National. There it went into the shelter. The first reports of effects came through Twitter and other social media. A rocket landed very close to where we just were. A very sickening feeling. You can see it firsthand: even though it’s mostly quiet, it’s just war.”

Doris Vettermann accompanied European Minister Karoline Edtstadler (ÖVP) to Ukraine, who made a solidarity visit with a delegation of politicians from various European countries. “I must say that I am very happy when I am gone again,” says the journalist from “Krone” honestly.

The power is also out in Moldova
At the same time as Kiev, there was an air raid alarm throughout Ukraine. Russian missiles hit all regions of the country. As a result, the power went out in parts of the country – including in Lemberg, in the far west. Neighboring Moldova was partly affected. During the night in the Zaporizhia region, a hospital was hit and a newborn baby was killed. Because of the attacks on civilian targets, the EU parliament has now designated Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wants to try to get the Ukrainian population of the country attacked by Russia through the winter with 4,000 heating rooms across the country. Kremlin boss Putin has been focusing on Ukraine’s electricity, heating and water infrastructure for weeks. Much has been destroyed.

The heating rooms are housed in schools and administrative buildings. “All basic services are provided there. These include electricity, mobile communications, the Internet, heat, water, first aid. Completely free and around the clock,” says Zelenskyj.

Kiev mayor Vitali Klitschko told “Bild” newspaper that the three-million-dollar metropolis was threatened with “the worst winter since World War II.” The city must be prepared for widespread power outages in low temperatures.
