In the near future, a personnel decision will be made to appoint an acting Head of the National Police. However, the situation is under control. All agencies under the Ministry of Internal Affairs work smoothly and efficiently, despite the fact that our entire team is emotionally burdened and devastated. But we understand that the safety of society, the safety of the border, and the safety of the state are in our hands,” — Reva said.

“We are sure that the leadership would like us to continue to perform our duties professionally. The team is worried because the people who died were respected, professional, and most importantly, they were human. This is why it is actually a great loss for the team of all the institutions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. We express our condolences to the relatives of the victims and to each other, because this is a great loss for us.
