“It was established that the police, despite the appeal of a resident of the house about the smell of gas and the threat of an explosion, received on the eve of the incident, did not take timely measures to suppress the unlawful behavior of a citizen living in the basement who posed a threat to the life and health of the residents,” RIA Novosti reported.

In this regard, the head of the OMVD of Russia for Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk was submitted a submission to eliminate violations of the law.

In addition, a presentation was made to the employees of the management company, which did not timely inspect the basements and did not pay attention to the gas cylinders stored there.

On July 8, an explosion of an oxygen cylinder in the basement of a five-story building in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk injured one person.
