According to Resin, a ban has been put on the use of such spaces in all hypermarkets of the network that exist in Moscow. "In such a situation it is necessary to request that the Inspectorate of State Architectural and Building Supervision of the City of Moscow should step up its efforts," the deputy mayor told the conference.
After the collapse of the roof over the parking space near the Metro store, seven people applied for medical assistance. According to Moscow mayor press-secretary Viktor Tsoi, three people were hospitalised. Eight cars were buried under the rubble.
Tsoi supposed that builders had failed to take into account Russia's climatic conditions. In Tsoi's view, the causes of the roof's cave-in are of a "technological" nature.
