As UNIAN reported earlier, massive thunderstorms with the downpour and hail on July 25 flooded the roads and underpasses in Kyiv, causing huge traffic jams citywide and a complete standstill downtown.

The underpass at the intersection of streets near Dorogozhychi subway station was almost completely flooded, which caused huge traffic jams.

In addition, the square in front of Kyiv International Airport (Zhuliany) (Terminals A and D) was completely flooded with water as a result of the heavy rainfall.
