Previously, an employee of the Listvyazhnaya mine Nikolay Alimov, where 51 people died as a result of the methane explosion, named the reasons for the miners' silence about the constant violations. “It's scary to work, but the salary is good and you don't have to travel far. We got an outfit, changed and drove off. It is not easy to change jobs without losing your salary. There is nowhere to go, ”Alimov shared. According to him, the miner “cannot stamp his foot and refuse to work,” as this could lead to heavy fines for workers.
Methane explosions at the Listvyazhnaya mine took place in the morning of November 25. 51 people died. Among the dead are both miners and rescuers who went to rescue them. A criminal case was initiated, five suspects, including the director of the mine, were arrested for two months.
