You're reading: Rinat Akhmetov: ‘I urge all people to stay calm’

A tragedy happened in our city yesterday. People of different political views could not control their aggression, which resulted in dozens of people being injured and the death of a young man, Dmitriy Chernyavskiy. I offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends. No politics can justify victims, and what happened is unacceptable.

Donbass has always been a responsible business region. It is a place of hard and sometimes dangerous labour where diligent and courageous people live and work. We must act unemotionally. We must be prudent and tolerant to each other. We must respect different views. We should stop sorting out relationships in the streets and squares as it can take lives and bring suffering.

I urge all people to stay calm, hold your emotions and stop bringing them out in public.
