The damage from forest fires in the regions of Russia has been calculated
Russia estimated the damage from forest fires in the first six months of the current year. In the first half of the year, 7,6 thousand forest fires appeared in the country.
The cost of damage for this period amounted to 2,4 billion rubles. Reported onThe official page of the Accounting Chamber on facebook. The main reasons for this situation, according to the ministry, are lack of funding, lack of necessary equipment, lack of ground and air protection units in the regions, poor quality of fire prevention measures conducted by tenants.
The total area of forest fires this year is 12 percent more than in the past. The main cause of fires is dry thunderstorms. However, the investigative committee opened the first criminal case. Defendants became officials of the Ministry of Forestry of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Smoke from forest fires shrouded 600 settlements in Russia. Residents of Buryatia, Yakutia, Trans-Baikal and Krasnoyarsk Territories, and the Irkutsk Region suffer the most from it.
