Number of injured in Kemerovo shopping mall fire grows to 76

Number of injured in Kemerovo shopping mall fire grows to 76

The journalists were driving to one of the malls in the Russian city of Vladimir for an inspection in wake of the deadly fire in the "Winter Cherry" shopping center in Kemerovo, which claimed dozens of lives. Wednesday was declared a day of national mourning and vigils were held across Russia, Tass news agency reported.

The latter has frequently been a venue for anti-government protests, and Tuesday's demonstration, attended by several thousand-people including opposition leader Alexei Navalny, quickly took on a political tone.

The events dedicated to the memory about the fire victims have started yesterday in a number of the Russian regions, including Simferopol, Sochi, Rostov-on-Don, Kabardino-Balkaria, the Urals Federal District, Chelyabinsk, Omsk, Orenburg, Tambov, most regions of the central and north-western Russia, St. Petersburg.

Security guards, supposed to help with any emergency evacuation, were reportedly among the first to flee when the fire broke out.

Protesters held banners reading "Bribes kill children" and "We demand a real investigation", and some chanted "Down with the cowardly regime!", "Putin - resign!", "What did the children die for?" and "We are sick and exhausted of him", meaning Putin. "People, children came to relax", Putin said.

Russians now want answers for why there were locked cinema doors, blocked fire exits and non-functioning alarms.

Relatives of victims say they have compiled a list of 85 people, majority children, who are still missing. He is one of two arrested and three detained in connection with the case so far. "Because of what? Because of some criminal negligence, slovenliness", Putin said. One message read: "Children, forgive us".

A father who lost his daughter in the fire recalled her final words: "She said, 'Dad, I love you". Some of the victims, many of them young children, died inside a locked movie theatre. A total of 27 bodies have been identified.

"Vova and Aman to prison!" read another banner, referring to Putin and the local governor.
