Russian Kemerovo region governor Aman Tuleyev resigns

AmanTuleyev, the longtime governor of Russia's Kemerovo region where a huge mall fire killed at least 64 people including 41 children last weekend, resigned on Sunday.

"The governor of Kemerovo region, Aman Tuleyev, handed Russian President Vladimir Putin his resignation letter", a statement released by Mr Tuleyev's office said.

On March 25, the massive fire at the shopping mall started on the fourth floor of the mall and consumed an area of about 1,600 square meters.

In February, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered Filipino workers in Kuwait to return home over alleged abuses in the country following the discovery of the maid's body in the freezer of an abandoned home that belonged to the Lebanese couple.

"With such a heavy burden, it's impossible to work as the governor", Mr Tuleyev said.

On Thursday, Russian media outlets reported that the Russian authorities have decided not to carry out demonstrative dismissal of Aman Tuleyev right after the deadly incident in the shopping mall, saying that governor might leave his office later.


The official death toll stood at 64, but protesters said they believed the number was higher. On the day when the fire broke out, the cinema was full of parents and children.

Investigators have revealed that the fire alarms were switched off and that some exits were blocked.

Six people have been arrested in the case, including the head of the regional construction inspection agency when the shopping center was developed in a former candy factory, and the general director of the company that owns the mall.

During the rally, Tsivilyov suggested that a man who lost his sister, wife, and three children in the fire was engaging in self-promotion.

"It was hard to play the first half", Spartak Moscow captain Denis Glushakov said after his team defeated Tosno, 2-1.
