Crowd in Kemerovo condemns officials over disaster that killed 41 children

"We are not talking here of war actions or methane leak". We talk about demography and we lose so many people because of what? "We lost so many people because of criminal negligence and sloppiness". "How could this ever happen?" he added.

"The first emotion when hearing about the number of dead and dead children is not to cry, but to wail".

Russia's Investigative Committee Spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko told TASS that a security guard switched off a fire alarm system at the mall.

All three had gone to watch a film at a cinema on the top floor of the shopping center on Sunday, but had been unable to get out of the auditorium when the fire broke out.

In Saint Petersburg, Russia's second largest city, hundreds gathered on the central Marsovo Polye square, many carrying flowers. Mayor Ilya Seredyuk tried to speak, but his words were often drowned out by chants calling on him to resign.

The lawmaker, Yelena Mizulina, also told Kemerovo residents and all Russians during the program that they can "prove that you're all on one team" and urged them not to "give into provocations" or discuss "rumors and all kinds of nasty things". Officials say 64 people, including 41 children, were killed in the fire that Mr Putin said was the result of criminal negligence.

Relatives of victims say they have compiled a list of 85 people, majority children, who are still missing.

On Tuesday evening, two vigils were held in Moscow, one called by authorities near the Kremlin and a second organized independently. Sergei and Natalia Agarkov buried two school-age children, Konstantin and Maria.

"Masha was 10, Kostya was eight", Sergei said. "Masha. was really good at sport". She should have ran out, but everything was locked. But ingrained secrecy in Russian administration has fed them - relatives of the dead have had to sign non-disclosure agreements before they could take possession of the bodies, a standard practice, according to police.

Putin promised a "transparent" investigation but declined to fire Aman Tuleyev, who has been governor of the Kemerovo region for the past 21 years.

Protesters carried photographs of some of the children who died in the blaze and others carried posters that said, "How many really died", "Who's really guilty" and "How much do your closed eyes cost?"

Rallies honouring the victims were held across Russian Federation on Tuesday.
