Following persistent calls to announce a period of mourning, the Kremlin said on Tuesday that Putin has declared Wednesday a day of mourning.

A fire broke out Sunday afternoon at the shopping mall in Kemerovo city in southwestern Siberia, killing 64 people, including many children. Funerals began in Russian Federation yesterday for the 64 people, majority children, whose deaths in a fire at a Siberian shopping mall have roused public anger over official corruption and incompetence.

It is to be recalled that on March 27, during his visit to Kemerovo, Putin, talking with relatives of those who died in the fire in the shopping center Zimnyaya Vishnya, promised that all the guilty will be established and held responsible regardless of their status.

The doors of one of the shopping centre's cinemas, where children were watching cartoon films, were locked and people did not hear alarms, Witnesses told Russian television.

Moody's said the ratings "reflect the significant shortfall in the production rate of the company's Model 3 electric vehicle". While the company has said it expects to end the quarter making 2,500 Model 3s per week, analysts are skeptical .

At a funeral service in an Orthodox church in Kemerovo, about 3,600km east of Moscow, women wailed as prayers were sung over three coffins, including two small caskets for children.

Putin yesterday ordered similar shopping centres across Russian Federation to be inspected to make sure they were well prepared in the event of a fire.

Investigators say their main theory is that an electrical short circuit caused the fire.

The protesters are disputing the official death toll, saying that the authorities are hiding the real scale of the disaster. Rescuers have struggled to recover bodies after the top floor collapsed and have said identifications may have to be done via DNA, according to Reuters. We talk about demographics and lose so many people because of what?

But some business owners in Kemerovo said this meant that safety shortcomings were not being identified.

The governor of the Kemerovo Region will leave his post, but later.

Four people have been detained in connection with the deadly fire, including a tenant of the mall. As a result, many companies prefer to pay bribes instead of complying with outdated and excessive regulations, including fire safety rules.
