The broadcast of the meeting was published on the Russia 24 YouTube channel.

“I was informed, of course, after the appropriate decisions were made in 2010 that all instructions had been fulfilled. We need to see how they are implemented. What exactly was done and how it was done. Let's figure it out, “Putin said.

Earlier during the meeting, he named the cause of the accident at the Listvyazhnaya mine. According to the president, it happened due to a number of safety violations.
