Rudolph Giuliani praised the facilities and capabilities of the data center created in Kyiv in the framework of â€œSafe capitalâ€œ. He noted that this is a very important step for safety and order on the streets.
â€œI was in your city a few times and can say that compared to previous visits, I see a big difference. Today Kiev is a modern city, a city of world level. I’m amazed at the changes that have occurred in a short period, said Rudolph Giuliani. – The system I saw in a data center is a wonderful. Your security system similar to the one in new York. It creates more security for the residents, for traffic in the city. But a lot more needs to be done to cover Kiev video surveillance completely,â€œ he said.
Rudolph Giuliani stressed that to improve security in the capital will help and the establishment of the municipal police, controlled by the company.
â€œWe have this morning had a long conversation with the mayor. You need more local autonomy to create municipal police. The mayor must have a certain level of authority to resolve issues that are of most concern to the city: safe traffic, fight against crime and terrorism. Because when something goes wrong, blame the mayor. So he should be able to resolve these issues. And this requires the municipal police,â€œ he said.

I’m glad Rudolph Giuliani said that in recent years, Kiev has changed. We continue these positive changes, – said Vitaly Klitschko. – Today we discussed our cooperation in the security sphere, attraction of the newest technologies in this field and the need for the creation of municipal policeâ€œ, – said Vitaly Klitschko.
