Veteran Russian governor Aman Tuleyev resigns over mall fire

Former Governor of the Kemerovo region Aman Tuleev will retain his residence, office and assistant after his resignation and he will also receive monthly payments under the law on People's Governor. The Kremlin has named Tuleyev's deputy, Tsivilev, temporary governor of the region.

The governor of the Siberian region where a devastating fire killed 64 people in a shopping centre has resigned, saying it was "morally impossible" to continue in his job after the tragedy. His current mandate was due to expire in 2020.

Tuleyev, who had been at the helm of the key coal-mining region since 1997, said in a video address that he could no longer remain at his post with "such a heavy burden" and added that his resignation was "the only right choice".

The administration of Russia's Kemerovo Region said on Sunday that it had received over 800 petitions from citizens following the deadly fire in a mall in the regional capital. "I have met the families of the deceased, I have tried to settle the matter of aid". I once again express my deep condolences.

The fire, which swept through a cinema complex and a children's play area in the Winter Cherry mall in the city of Kemerovo last Sunday, was one of the deadliest since the Soviet Union broke up in 1991. "I want to say to you, the residents of Kemerovo and the entire region, that I will do everything to ensure that those guilty in this bad tragedy are brought the strictest punishment". But we have to live on. Reports of children locked inside cinemas also emerged after the incident. People rallied in the hundreds to demand justice for the victims and their family, calling for the resignations of regional authorities and the prosecution of those found responsible.

President Vladimir Putin accepted his resignation, the Kremlin said.

In a video message addressed to the people of Kemerovo posted on the local administration's website Sunday, Tuleyev said that he had taken it upon himself to vacate his post.

The owner of the shopping mall and the regional chief building inspector have been detained and could face years in prison, investigators said on Friday.
