Restoration of Frozen ‘Steppe’ Garrison Continues has a good report on the situation.  Notice that SibVO’s acting chief of apartment management is on the scene.  Restoration has proven more difficult than thought.  The 100 evacuated residents have not returned.  Crews are working inside the buildings, but it’s a large amount of work.  There are problems in every building, including five of 10 apartment blocks where full restoration of heating had been reported earlier.  Of course, the military prosecutors are laying the incident entirely on the chief of the garrison’s apartment management unit, one Lieutenant Colonel Konstantin Kondrashov, who faces criminal charges of ‘negligence.’  During preparations for the heating season, he allegedly failed to take needed maintenance measures in the garrison’s boiler room.  See also coverage.
