MPs demand to check shopping centers in Bishkek after Kemerovo tragedy

Deputies of the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan demanded to check all Bishkek shopping centers for compliance with fire safety standards. The Deputy Elvira Surabaldieva addressed such request to the Deputy Prime Minister Sanzhar Mukanbetov.

According to her, children’s playgrounds in most Bishkek shopping centers are located on the upper floors. That is why the repetition of the tragedy that took place in a shopping center in Kemerovo is not ruled out. At least 64 people were killed in a fire in the shopping center Winter Cherry.

«We need to check our shopping centers, whether they comply with the fire safety rules, to really check them and fix the flaws. Do not turn this into another way of earning money,» said Elvira Surabaldieva.
