Construction officials have checked the neighboring section of the building and concluded that there was no threat of it collapsing as well. In several hours residents of the neighboring buildings will be allowed back into their apartments. Neighboring buildings will be additionally inspected in the nearest two weeks.

Additional police forces have been brought to the site and double cordoning has been arranged. The dog handlers are working at the site.

Karaganda Akim (Mayor) said that residents have been provided an office in the city administration building, where they can gather together to discuss compensations payment.

The city administration will pay the residents a compensation of 300 million tenge ($2 million). There will also be an option to receive an apartment in new buildings in different regions of the city.

Tengrinews.kz reports from the accident site that the Akim (Mayor) arrived to the accident site. He promised compensation to the residents for their loss. He also promised to protect the building from pillage.

"The investigation has revealed that Servispromsnab company constructed this Bessoba residential complex as an equity construction project (the construction was partly funded from the money prepaid by the future residents). In 2007-2010 the company received the money from the future owners, but the Mr. Malyanov, director of the company, disappeared with part of the money even before construction of some of the company's projects was fully completed," press-secretary of Karaganda oblast financial police department Gulzhan Suleimenova said.

Andrey Malyanov has been on the international wanted list since last summer. His company is over 300 million tenge ($2 million) in debt to banks on loan repayments.

Earlier Tengrinews.kz reported that Bessoba residential complex in Karaganda was expected to collapsed any moment. The state of the bearing structures of the building were rated as "emergency condition" and the threat of collapse was officially acknowledged.

The multi-apartment residential building, constructed at the cost of the interest participants (future owners), was put into operation in 2009. The building started cracking because of displacement of the main structures. A state of emergency was introduced in the building. The residents were evacuated.
