For the first time since Russia invaded the country on 24 February, Ukraine’s capital will reopen its schools.

Schools in Kyiv are to reopen for the start of the new school year on 1 September.

The schools closed on 24 February and went online. They’re currently on summer holiday.

“The most important task for the new school year is the safety of students and teachers,” Olene Fidanyan, head of Kyiv’s education and science department said in a statement.

In the statement, Fidanyan confirmed that territories adjacent to the schools will be checked for explosives and bombs shelters in schools will be restocked with water, medicine and other necessities.

“At the start of the school year, all schools will hold the necessary training with teachers and children on actions during an air-raid alert,” Ms Fidanyan added.

Children who won’t be able to return to Kyiv by September will be able to continue study remotely.

In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of residents have returned to Kyiv. Restaurants, supermarkets and other businesses are gradually reopening to visitors.
