Broken security system
Many witnesses on their pages in social networks and in comments to journalists, talked about the panic after the fire started. Telegram-channel Mash got through to one of the guards of the shopping center and has published an audio recording of a conversation with him.
At this point, the animators and the guests were preparing the tables. There was something said. Was exactly the spark I remember. I moved away to the racing the play area. I went to deal with young people who played without paying. I collected these ten boys and girls and kicked them out. As soon as they came out, I suddenly saw smoke coming from somewhere. I saved them the trip.
According to him, have not worked nor extinguishing system or alarm, continued to work the elevators.
Started having severe panic. But the elevators somehow it worked. The fire station do not work. There was no water, there was no alarm. Recently to us there came, checked everything. I know have the elevators shut down. But they worked, so everything is broken. Everyone screamed and fled. Then I went to save the children. I just grabbed them and dragged. Don’t know how much. Ten, fifteen, just go for a run until breathing was.
Among the preliminary versions of three: arson, careless handling of fire and faulty wiring. In any case, victims could be much less if I worked security and all staff had properly performed their duties — write about it, many users in social networks.
Of course, this is only a rumor. Practice to lock the doors leaving the entrance hall, among the cinema ushers are really common. Last year on the “Peekaboo”was published this photo.

Just my mother was not the owner of the Mall, she bought him two years ago, she just worked there on the position of CEO. It was one of the CEOs, but someone conveniently started to translate everything for her. And by the way, hadn’t taken her in for questioning from the house. At the beginning of this hell she had a day off, but as soon as she found out everything just went down.

From the beginning, as it happened, I was headed, however, on leaving I could not, but there is a reason.
Puchkov added that he asked Tuleev to come, “not to interfere with people to perform professional duties in a zone of carrying out search and rescue operations.”
Then Tuleyev without any connection with the question to speak about the business.
I want to say: business — small, medium is sacred. There is a decision of the state on the support, the enormous efforts that the state created conditions for development of small and medium-sized businesses. Huge conditions. Unprecedented, I believe, even in the world unseen. Work, work and work. And administration of all it will support. […] But if the state does much for you, it must not be a one-way street.
Journalists and users of social networks it Tuleyev has caused confusion.
