The complex fire hazard situation today remains in the territory of all municipalities of the Khabarovsk, Primorsky and Trans-Baikal Territories, the Jewish Autonomous and Amur Regions. According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, in the area of responsibility of the Eastern Military District there are more than 60 hotbeds of wildfires with a total area of about 5 thousand hectares. This includes, inter alia, forest land and agricultural land.
