Summer 2020 will be one of the hottest in Russia. This was announced at a meeting with the president by the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Dmitry Kobylkin.

The minister said that abnormally hot weather is observed this year. He cited Krasnoyarsk as an example, where the temperature has already reached 35 degrees Celsius. According to him, according to forecasts of Roshydromet and foreign hydrometeorological stations, this year there may be an abnormally hot summer in history.

“If it’s not the most abnormal, then maybe it will enter the top five. There is such a forecast, ”said Dmitry Kobylkin.

The head of the Ministry of Natural Resources noted that in connection with this, a difficult fire hazard situation is expected in Russia. He drew the president's attention to the problems with financing forest policy in the regions. After that, Vladimir Putin instructed the Ministry of Finance to allocate additional money for these purposes.

The head of the Ministry of Emergencies, Evgeny Zinichev called the situation with forest fires in the Far Eastern Federal District critical. According to him, the main reason is uncontrolled burning of grass, so he proposed to tighten the responsibility for violations of fire safety, which lead to the spread of fires in settlements.
