In the air of Kyiv during the week from July 11 to 16, 2022, an excess of the average daily maximum permissible concentrations of nitrogen dioxide up to 4,3 times and formaldehyde to 3,7 time.

Compared to the previous week, the level of pollution decreased due to weather conditions, in particular, a decrease in air temperature and precipitation , says the weekly reports on air pollution from the Borys Sreznevsky Central Geophysical Observatory.

According to the data of the observatory, the limit of permissible concentration (LPC) is exceeded according to the average daily content nitrogen dioxide last week was:
