He noted that he has repeatedly been in those situations in which rescuers and firefighters have to work. “I know how difficult it is physically and mentally. And you have to go through all this. And, unfortunately, it happens that people give their own lives for the sake of saving others. There is nothing more noble, ” Putin added (quoted by RIA Novosti).
