A criminal investigation has been opened over allegations the dam violated safety regulations.

"The hydro-technical facility was self-constructed and, I believe, all rules I can and cannot think of were violated," Yuri Lapshin, the head of the Krasnoyarsk regional government, was quoted by RIA news agency as saying.

SOUND FAMILIAR?    Our dams were constructed BEFORE dam construction was a science!
