The President noted that miners are taking risks to feed their families.

Putin stressed that it is necessary to create such conditions so that miners do not have to take risks.

“This was the meaning of our decisions in 2010,” Putin said, banging his fist on the table.

During the meeting, the head of state criticized the SDS-Ugol company for non-compliance with safety conditions at the Listvyazhnaya mine in the Kemerovo region.

Also, during the meeting, Putin said that he was not satisfied with the report of the Minister of Labor Anton Kotyakov on the salaries of miners in Russia.

On November 25, an accident occurred at the Listvyazhnaya mine in Kuzbass, as a result of which 51 people died and dozens were injured.
