The first accused appeared in the criminal case of a gas explosion in Noginsk near Moscow, which killed seven people and injured dozens. According to Kommersant’s information, he is the director of a company that serves gas equipment in the apartment, Ildus Yunusov. It was established that a gas leak occurred in one apartment, and it exploded in another, seeping there along an unsealed pipe.
In connection with the recent state of emergency in Noginsk, ICR officers in the Moscow region detained Ildus Yunusov, the general director of Mobile Mechanized Column-90 LLC from Elektrostal.

According to the investigation, Olga Vradiy, an official representative of the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Moscow Region, said that within the framework of agreements for the maintenance of in-house gas equipment concluded by the LLC with the owners of two apartments, the general director of the company did not organize maintenance and did not reveal any malfunctions. As a result, there was a large leak of domestic gas in one apartment, and due to the lack of packing between the gas pipe and the floor of the apartments, improper functioning of the ventilation system, the gas concentrated in another apartment. These circumstances led to an explosion and a complete collapse of the first four floors of the second entrance of the house.
