Kyiv was on the 49th place of the rating with the number of 2.10 cameras per 1000 population. In total, according to the rating, there are about 6.2 thousand cameras in the city.
The first place went to the Chinese city of Chongqing, in which more than 15 million people and more than 2.5 million cameras. The top five also include the Chinese cities of Shenzhen, Shanghai, Tianjin and Jinan.
The top ten includes only two cities that are not in China – these are London and Atlanta.
