Kazakhstani President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev expressed his sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the miners who lost their lives in the fire at the Kostenko Mine in the Karaganda region. The head of state instructed the Government to provide all necessary assistance to the families of the miners. A government commission has been established to investigate the circumstances of the incident.
The government has been instructed to terminate investment cooperation with the company “ArcelorMittal Temirtau.”
The emergency occurred during the night.
It is worth noting that just two months ago, a tragedy occurred at the “Kazakhstanskaya” mine (also owned by “ArcelorMittal Temirtau”).
It has recently become known that the management is entirely responsible for the tragedy that led to the deaths of miners following the fire at the “Kazakhstanskaya” mine.
The staggering statistics of fatal accidents at AMT facilities have caused outrage and angry comments not only from internet users but also from officials, starting with the head of state. The rumors about a possible “divorce” with a foreign investor have gone beyond kitchen table discussions and have taken concrete shape in parliamentary inquiries. To understand what is happening, the correspondent of Ulysmedia.kz analyzed, remembered, and reviewed personal archives.
On April 23, it became known that Irina Em, a lawyer at “ArcelorMittal Temirtau,” was killed. Her body, showing signs of violent death, was discovered by firefighters from the city of Shakhtinsk who responded to a call. The most significant question actively discussed on social media is whether the woman’s murder is related to her professional activities. The Ulysmedia.kz correspondent investigated why deaths at “AMT” are associated with production.
