The leader of the National Corps Andriy Biletsky appealed to the The State Emergency Service to create volunteer firefighting units.
Veterans, our activists are ready to extinguish fires to save our countrymen, he said.
Beletsky visited the villages of Magdin and Lichmani in Zhytomyr region, which were most affected by the fire, where 6,000 hectares of forest and 39 houses were burned. He stressed that the real cause of the forest fires was the deforestation and corruption of the authorities.
During the trip, representatives of the National Corps also provided assistance to people who suffered from fires and lost their homes.
