In this sense, he cited as an example the residents of the Chernigov region who have decreased consumption by 17%, while kyiv and its province have only done so by 7%. At the national level, consumption has been reduced by 10 %.

Please do more if you have the opportunity,” Zelensky asked the inhabitants.
