The issue of compliance with security requirements concerns not only the inspection of public institutions introduced by the Government of Ukraine on compliance with fire safety standards, but also the conduct of other campaigns, including food security screening campaigns. The Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said on the air of one of the TV channels.

"This is a grave question. And it sounds like something of global importance, but in fact we are facing it every day. We will establish an order. I'm against fining someone, but I stand for everyone start doing their jobs", said Volodymyr Groysman.

He reminded that fire prevention systems checks were fueled by a number of tragedies that had led to casualties, in particular children. Prevention measures and providing security is a priority objective of the country. "I want to apologize for the inconvenience, but it's better to go through verification and training. God willing this knowledge will never be applied. But in case of danger, everyone must understand how to act. And I would not recommend anyone playing in the current situation or seeking for extra money by blocking emergency exits, for example. We seek to protect people from danger. Everyone should be interested to undergo the checks", said Volodymyr Groysman.


In late March this year, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman initiated large-scale inspections of public institutions - from kindergartens to large entertainment centers for compliance with norms, first of all, fire safety. In the first days of the checks that began on March 30, dozens of institutions were checked all across the regions of Ukraine. The State Emergency Service regularly informs about preliminary results of inspections and the most resonant cases.
