"In implementation of the government's decision, the State Emergency Service will begin large-scale inspections of places of mass gathering tomorrow to determine whether they meet safety requirements, primarily fire safety requirements," the statement said.

In particular, Groysman said that the relevant decision provided for inspection of all places of mass gathering, such as cinemas, malls, schools, and kindergartens.

Chechiotkin confirmed that the inspections will begin on March 30 and that they will be conducted in all public establishments in the form of additional training of personnel.
