Due to the increase in the recreational burden on natural territories and the meteorological situation, the Ministry of Emergencies is forecasting an increase in the number of foci and areas of natural fires in the Far East. Most fires are expected in Transbaikalia and in Yakutia.

According to the head of the All-Russian Research Institute for Civil Defense and Emergencies, EMERCOM of Russia Sergei Didenko, the emergence of individual foci of natural fires in Yakutia is predicted due to the opening of the spring hunting season.

According to the EMERCOM of Russia, over the past week the number of thermal points has already increased in the Amur Region, Primorsky Territory and Yakutia. A total of 12 centers of natural fires operate in 56 regions of the Far East, Siberia and the Urals, and the area of ​​active burning exceeds 28 hectares.
