Ukraine subway resumes operation after false bomb warning

Published: Updated:

After a bomb warning on Saturday that urged local authorities in the Ukraine capital Kiev to shutdown five metros, subway operations have resumed.

According to media reports, the bomb alert was false.

The false warnings came simultaneously with the kickoff of the Champion’s League final held in Kiev. Set to play today are the Spaniards Real Madrid versus England’s Liverpool.

On Friday, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has criticized UEFA’s decision to hold the Champions League final in Kiev, as fans continue to struggle with travel problems.

The Ukrainian capital has failed to cope with the influx of fans from around the world, with its two airports running out of capacity and hotel prices soaring to astronomical levels.

Around 1,000 Liverpool fans were left stranded when three flights were canceled Thursday, and around the same number of Real fans gave back tickets after being deterred by travel problems.
