The recent fire in Kansk has attracted the public attention to the critical situation in the fourth largest city of the Krasnoyarsk krai. It turned out that Kansk has sustained damages not only from the fire but also from malpractice of the local authorities. Mayor Nadezhda Kachan rules the city so efficiently that millions of budget rubles disappear into thin air. On the other hand, enterprises belonging to her relatives are thriving. Why do the city residents name Kachan the principle culprit of the major fire and require the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) to institute a criminal case against her?
