Quote: "I’m in the Novofedorivka village at the site of the explosions. It is too early to talk about the causes of the incident. The investigation commission will find out all the details.

Measures have been taken to put up a protective perimeter around a 5-kilometre zone. Fences, traffic police and other patrols have been placed there to exclude any possibility of locals getting injured. The Ministry of Emergency Situations is monitoring the fires, the remains [of damaged buildings -ed.] are falling down.

It is also too early to talk about casualties. So far no civilians have turned to medical institutions for medical help."
