The head of state said this during an event to mark the Ukrainian Rescuer Day at the Mariyinsky Palace in Kyiv on Thursday, the press service of the head of state reported.
"I want to emphasize that this [reduction in the number of emergencies] occurs during the war, during the intensification of the terrorist activity of the aggressor state. This is more evidence that the country is changing and the emergency service is changing," Poroshenko said.
The head of state expressed his sincere gratitude to the staff of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine for the saved lives of Ukrainians and contribution to ensuring national security.
Earlier reports said that 21 Ukrainian rescuers had been killed and 38 others injured since the beginning of Russian aggression in the Donbas in 2014.
