He noted that with the development of new technology possible failures, and “it’s natural”. “But we need to support people who encounter them” — he said, promising that “such support will”.

“If it [the failures] is due to sloppiness, lack of control over important processes, I want to understand, to see how goes the debriefing in such cases”, — Putin said, stressing the need “to draw conclusions”.
