Classes in Kotlin can’t have static members; Java’s static keyword isn’t part of the Kotlin language. As a replacement, Kotlin relies on package-level functions (which can replace Java’s static methods in many situations) and object declarations (which replace Java static methods in other cases, as well as static fields)
