BRASILIA, July 17 /ITAR-TASS/. Responsibility is always personified, Russian President Vladimir Putin said when answering the question on who was guilty in the Moscow metro tragedy that killed over 20 people.
“If it is proven that someone is to blame for the disaster, investigative agencies should prove specific people guilty. Unfounded statements should not be made for everyone to hear,” Putin said.
Three cars of a subway train derailed on Tuesday at 8:35 a.m. Moscow time (4:35 UTC) on the stretch of the west-bound "blue" line of the Russian capital’s metro network between the Park Podedy and Slavyansky Bulvar stations, probably due to a broken switch. More than 23 passengers died, some 150 people were hospitalized.
