The head of Prokopyevsk, Vyacheslav Starchenko, was dismissed for a party he threw in honor of his appointment to the post during mourning in the Kemerovo region. He announced this in his Telegram-channel the Governor of the region Sergei Tsivilev.
The former head of Prokopyevsk took office on November 25. Thus, he remained at the post for one day.
On the eve of the party in honor of the appointment of Starchenko hit the video. The video was published by Mash in his Telegram-channel.
The frames show tables laid and at least 15 guests. The author of the video asks the audience if there is a corporate event in the hall and warns them about the live filming. Then one of those present pushes the operator into the corridor.
The State Duma reacted to the party during mourning and the subsequent resignation of Starchenko. So, the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption Alexander Khinshtein commented on the ex-mayor’s banquet on his Telegram channel.
According to Khinshtein, the issue of party responsibility of the banquet participants during mourning in Kuzbass will be decided next week. The politician stressed that Tsivilev reacted extremely harshly, but fairly. The governor did not hide his head in the sand, hoping that the scandal would not reach the federal level, Khinshtein said.
The accident at the Listvyazhnaya mine in the town of Belovo, Kemerovo Region, became known on the morning of November 25. It was reported that coal dust ignited in the mine and smoke filled the drifts. Another reason for the incident is called the explosion of methane. According to colleagues and widows of the deceased miners, its level went off scale long before the accident.
According to current data, 52 people died in the mine: 46 miners and 6 rescuers. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case on the negligence of Rostekhnadzor employees who checked Listvyazhnaya. In addition, after the emergency, the 47-year-old director of the mine, his 59-year-old first deputy and the 36-year-old section manager were detained. The tragedy at the Listvyazhnaya mine has become the largest in terms of the number of victims since 2010, but far from the worst in terms of the number of victims in the Kemerovo region – in the 2000s, 110 miners died in the Ulyanovskaya mine, and 91 people in the Raspadskaya mine.
According to the head of the region, the search for the bodies of the dead on Listvyazhnaya after the completion of its conservation will take not a day or a week, it may take a month.
On November 26, in the Kemerovo Region, a three-day mourning began for the miners and rescuers who died at Listvyazhnaya. This was announced by the Governor of Kuzbass Sergei Tsivilev. On Thursday, November 25, he met with the relatives of the miners who are currently in the mine.
