Forest fires in the regions of the Far East may begin in April. At the same time, the danger level of such fires this spring may exceed the long-term average values.

According to the Aviation Protection forecast, in April the likelihood of exceeding the annual average fire hazard values ​​is high in the southern part of Buryatia and Primorye, in the south of Transbaikalia and in the southwestern part of the Irkutsk region. In May, forest fires may occur in the Khabarovsk Territory, Amur Region, the western part of Primorsky Territory and the entire Jewish Autonomy.

Economic forest fire damage in Russia amounted to 14,4 billion rubles, the area of ​​dead plantations exceeded 63 thousand hectares. The amount of damage determined by the federal project “Forest Conservation” exceeded 20,5 billion rubles.
