A mining accident in Russia killed many people. It was the deadliest since 2010. In 2016, 36 miners were killed when there were explosions in a coal mine. After that, authorities did an analysis of the safety of all the country’s coal mines and found that 34% were unsafe.
The Russian officials are sad. They declared three days of mourning. The Investigative Committee has found that some laws were broken. It is looking into the fire at the mine which killed many people. The mine director and two other managers were arrested because they broke these laws while people died in the fire. Today, it was announced that another investigation is being launched into the alleged negligence of state officials who inspected the mine earlier this month.
