Russia’s MoE To Inspect Shopping Malls Through July 30

UrBC, Moscow, July 3, 2018. Russia’s Ministry of Emergencies extended its inspections of shopping malls through July 30, 2018, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the ministry, every one in six malls in the country fails to comply with the regulations for the performance of automated fire alarms and firefighting systems.

The ministry first started checking the shopping malls all over the country after a major fire outbreak in Zimnyaya Vishnya Mall in Kemerovo, when sixty-four people (forty-one of them children) got killed.

By early May, the inspections resulted in nearly a third of all malls closing down.
