Creation of a modern system of rapid response to emergencies is a priority for the Ukrainian government, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said.
"The explosions in Dnipropetrovsk have shown that we need to invest more in the security of our citizens. The creation of a modern system of rapid response, primarily for public places and transport, is our top priority," he said opening a government meeting on May 3.
The prime minister said they had already started developing relevant programs.
Azarov expressed confidence that those responsible for the explosions in Dnipropetrovsk on April 27 would be caught and punished. "Innocent people have been injured. Such a challenge to the state will be severely punished. Law enforcers are working. The results won't take long," he stressed.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
