Russia has declared a state of emergency as wildfires rage across Siberia. The wildfires engulfed an area of forest almost the size of Belgium amid record high temperatures.
More than two million hectares on fire in Siberia, with turndra on fire destryoing the permafrost. Most fires will not be extinguished, with major cities polluted by fumes https://t.co/riHUCXgD8q pic.twitter.com/dEkAGsHNRj— The Siberian Times (@siberian_times) July 26, 2019

Siberia is on fire. This is not only Russia problem. It is also a problem for the whole world. It is foolish to believe that this won't affect our planet. @NBCNews @SkyNews @cnnbrk @cnni @FoxNewsSunday @BBCWorld @BBCBreaking #SaveSiberiaForests#SaveSiberianForests pic.twitter.com/VjArfK0zVo— Sol (@mr_foil) July 29, 2019
