Construction of modern bomb shelters in Ukraine – the Parliament approved the bill in the first reading

Modern bomb shelters and shelters have become one step closer to Ukrainians – the Parliament passed Bill 7398 in the first reading, which will create conditions for the construction of such facilities in accordance with the level of threats posed by full-scale Russian aggression. This document was developed with the participation of BRDO experts.

It is important that from now on, new buildings with significant (CC3) and medium (CC2) impact classes, which will permanently house more than 50 people or periodically house more than 100 people, will have to have civil defense structures (bomb shelters and shelters).

This means that without a section on civil engineering engineering measures, construction design documentation will not even be developed, it will not be possible to obtain the right to perform construction work and to commission a completed facility.

In addition, all shelters should be accessible to people with disabilities and other low-mobility groups.

In case of need (for example, emergency, state of emergency, special period, etc.), bomb shelters and shelters should be ready in no more than 12 hours. And the maintenance of bomb shelters in readiness for their intended use is entrusted to their owners, users, legal entities, on the balance of which they are, at their own expense.
