There's a need to create an international commission due to the situation that occurred at Crimean Titan factory in Armyansk, in the occupied Crimea. President Petro Poroshenko said that during the session of the National Security and Defense Council.

'We all are informed of the environmental disaster, which took place in the occupied Crimea, in Armyansk. Currently, environment safety experts tell us the quite disturbing news (...) We need to do a couple of things. The first thing is to create an international commission and stop the environmental disaster, which directly affects Ukraine, taking place in the occupied territory. Besides, according to my own reliable sources, these are the consequences of the respective drills held by the Russian military, which led to the destruction of protection mechanisms', Poroshenko said.  

The second thing, the President continued, would be to create conditions for taking children from Armyansk to the mainland Ukraine for rest, rehabilitation and 'saving', in the Ukrainian leader's own words. Poroshenko charged Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman to see to it that the respective conditions are created.
