In Ukraine the life nets for saving the lives of people are not provided
The press-secretary of the State Service of Ukraine for Emergency Situations Natalia Ivanenchuk, answering the request of Radio Freedom to comment on the situation in Kharkov, when 8 people died during the fire, said that the State Service of Ukraine for Emergency Situations does not have life nets in arsenal.
"There are no life nets in our arsenal, they are not in the list of the equipment that is used for rescue," Ivanenchuk said.
On the video, posted in the Internet, one can see people in an attempt to escape from the fire hanging on external units of air conditioners and falling down. The height of the ladder of fire machines is obviously not enough.
The Chair of the State Service of Ukraine for Emergency Situations Mikhail Bolotskikh stated that the actions of his subordinates during the rescue operation were professional.
