Kiev (AFP) March 24, 2013
Ukraine has told its public sector workers in Kiev to stay home on Monday as exceptionally heavy snowstorms blanketed the capital and other parts of the country over the weekend, forcing authorities to declare a state of emergency.
Kiev's private sector has been urged to follow suit, officials said Sunday.
The equivalent of a month's snowfall has covered Ukraine in the last two days, stopping traffic and leaving many vehicles buried under snowdrifts.
More than 600 towns and villages suffered power cuts.
