In the Kamchatka Territory, the activated Klyuchevskoy volcano released an ash column 5,5 km high. This was reported by the Kamchatka group for responding to volcanic eruptions of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Thanks to the wind, the ash plume spread 30 km northwest of the volcano. 

At the same distance from Klyuchevsky is the nearest settlement, the village of Klyuchi in the Ust-Kamchatsky district. However, it is located on the other side of the volcano and ashfall has not caused harm to local residents. Only for aviation have a yellow hazard code been set.

Klyuchevsky is the highest active volcano on the Eurasian continent. His last eruption began in November 2019. Two months later, in addition to ash emissions, experts recorded the trembling of the volcano.
