The police have three main versions of emergency in the Luhansk region, where there was a large-scale fire.
“Now there are three main versions of the causes of the fire: the effect of anomalously high air temperature and weather conditions, careless handling of fire by an unauthorised person or arson or other from hooligan motives”, — said the head of national police of Ukraine Igor Klimenko.
However, the final cause of large-scale state of emergency will be established only after conducting necessary examinations. “The main task now — to save people and to prevent looting. We have created additional mobile groups of police who heavily patrol these areas”, — said Klimenko.
According to head of national police opened criminal proceedings under part 2 of article 270 of the Criminal code of Ukraine (violation of established by legislation requirements of fire security, entailed death of people, damage to property on an especially large scale or other serious consequences).
