The governor of Russia's Kemerovo region, Aman Tuleyev, has resigned in the wake of a tragic fire in a local mall, in which 64 people, majority children, died. His current term was due to expire in 2020. "I believe it's the right, sensible, the only correct decision, because it's impossible, morally impossible to hold a governor's post with such a heavy burden", he said in a video address. "I want to say to you, the residents of Kemerovo and the entire region, that I will do everything to ensure that those guilty in this bad tragedy are brought the strictest punishment". I have met with the families of the victims, tried to solve the problems with delivering assistance [to the victims and their families]. According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, 64 people including 41 children were killed. Again, I offer my deep apologies. On Sunday he appointed Sergei Tsivilyov, one of the region's deputy governors, to replace Tuleyev as acting governor. But we have to live, we have to move on.

President Vladimir Putin said the incident had been caused by "criminal negligence" and that those responsible would be punished. "141 of them are connected with the tragedy at the Winter Cherry shopping mall, with 99 being condolences from Kemerovo region residents and people from other Russian regions", the administration's statement read.
