“Usually at this time of the year, the tundra is covered with snow, so such fires occur extremely rarely, Interfax quotes the words of an informed source, who clarified that the nearest reservoirs cannot be used for extinguishing, since they are already covered with ice.
According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the edge of the fire is moving towards Lake Glukhoe in the direction of the Raduzhny settlement, the fire is 12 km away from the village, but there is no threat to the settlement. The maximum permissible concentration of chemicals is not exceeded.
Let us remind you that on November 3, US President Joe Biden called the "tundra on fire" a climatic problem of the Russian Federation. During the climate summit, the American leader criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping for not arriving at the event.
- It's the same with Putin in Russia. His tundra is on fire. His tundra is literally on fire. He has very serious problems with the climate, but he does not say a word about the desire to change anything, - quoted Biden as quoted by Thegoaspotlight.
In the Federation Council of the Russian Federation, Biden's words were considered another blunder.
"Biden simply read the text prepared for him, he's not the first time it allows such mistakes", - told RIA Novosti the head of the Federation Council Committee on Agrarian Policy and Environmental Management And toke Mayorov.
Biden has a blunder, of course, because our senators know better, but for some reason the tundra is also on fire. Paradox.
