At the Listvyazhnaya mine in the Kemerovo Region, on the morning of the tragedy, there was no fire – there was an explosion. Then the locals heard a second pop. Such details of the accident in a conversation with “Lenta.ru” were revealed by Alexander Ilchuk, an underground electrician who worked in Belovo.
According to him, workers who were at the epicenter of the explosion died immediately. If the fans were stopped in time, those who were further from the explosion site could have been saved, Ilchuk said.
“The fan was stopped later, when it arrived [губернатор Кемеровской области Сергей] Tsivilev. It turns out that a fire has occurred – the fans have been blown up throughout the mine, in all workings, ”said the miner.
He believes that the large number of victims is associated with the ill-considered liquidation of the accident and the illiteracy of the chief engineer.
At the same time, the acting head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Alexander Chupriyan denied information about the second explosion at a mine in the Kemerovo region, reports TASS… He clarified that rescuers do not confirm the fact of the explosion.
The incident became known early Thursday morning, November 25. As a result, 52 people died, including six mine rescuers, and, according to the latest data, 63 people were injured. Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Dmitry Demeshin believes that the cause of death at the Listvyazhnaya mine was a methane explosion caused by a spark. After the suspension of rescue operations the day before, the paramilitary units resumed their work on the morning of November 26 – they are isolating sections of mine workings and filling it with methane to reduce the danger of an explosion.
