The management of Odesa Tokyo Star Hotel, in which 8 people were killed in a fire on the night of August 17, did not allow a routine check of the State Emergency Service in July 2019. This was announced at a briefing by the Deputy Director of the Department of Emergency Prevention, Pavlo Afanasyev.

"In July, the State Emergency Service planned to conduct an audit of the specified hotel. But along with the fact that the owner (of the hotel) changed the form of ownership, the representative of the State Emergencies Ministry was not allowed to check the hotel,"  Afanasyev said.

He added that it’s hard to say now what caused the fire.

"It could be a violation of fire safety requirements, it could be the careless handling of fire by some citizens who lived in this hotel ... I think that the investigations carried out by the National Police will show that reason," Afanasyev added.
