Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis offered a “personal and sincere apology” on Wednesday to all citizens trapped on roads and a train during the blizzard that hit Athens and eastern Greece.

Speaking during an emergency cabinet meeting, he acknowledged the insufficient response of the state to the storm and vowed an investigation into the failure of the company managing the Attiki Odos ring road to maintain normal traffic conditions.

Ζητώ μία προσωπική και ειλικρινή συγγνώμη από τους συμπολίτες μας που ταλαιπωρήθηκαν επί ώρες, μένοντας εγκλωβισμένοι στην Αττική Οδό. Είχαμε πρωτοφανή χιονόπτωση, όμως δεν πρόκειται αυτό να το επικαλεστώ ως δικαιολογία. Υπήρξαν αστοχίες και ανεπάρκειες που πρέπει να διορθωθούν. pic.twitter.com/Z8WEXOIRfQ
