GRAMOTEINO (Kemerovo region), 26 Nov – The search for the bodies of those killed at the Listvyazhnaya mine in the Kemerovo region after the completion of its conservation will take not a day or a week, it may take a month, said the regional governor Sergei Tsivilev.
The governor told reporters that on Tuesday the authorities plan to present a work plan for the mine after the completion of its mothballing.
“I just want to say that no one expects that it will be one day, or two days, or three days. It will not be a week. It could be a month,” Tsivilev said.
On the morning of November 25, at the Listvyazhnaya mine in Belovo, Kemerovo Region, there was smoke, 285 people were underground. They managed to withdraw most of them, the mine rescuers went after the rest, but after a while they were recalled due to the threat of an explosion. The reason for the emergency, according to preliminary data, was a methane explosion. Now 51 people have been declared dead: 46 miners and five mine rescuers. 50 people were hospitalized: 38 miners and 12 rescuers.
