"There is a surge in suicides. Two or three per day. There were even five suicides in one day: two shot themselves, two hanged and one jumped out," he said in an interview with the Ukrainian news outlet

According to him, suicides usually occur once or twice a week.

At the same time, Kryshchenko added there had been fewer murders, and almost all of them, about 95%, had been solved.

"Kyiv has not seen such a rate for a long time," he said.
