"First. The state should always speak frankly with its people. It is unacceptable to hide the truth from citizens, no matter how bitter it may be. Second. By uniting and consolidating efforts, people are able to tame and stop any disaster. We have no right to forget these lessons to prevent this from happening in the future," wrote Zelensky.

He added that he bows his head before the heroes who responded to the accident.
