Continuing Russian wildfires

Though many have been contained, wildfires continue to rage throughout many parts of Russia. In a new twist to the situation, officials have confirmed that some forests that were contaminated with radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster have now burned, but it was unclear what danger the smoke from such wildfires could pose. Monitoring stations have not registered any increase in radioactivity as yet. Recent windy conditions have temporarily cleared the smoke from Moscow's skies, but it could possibly return soon. The area of burning forests in Russia is now 927 sq km (358 sq mi), down from from 1,740 sq km (676 sq m) only 24 hours ago. The economic costs of the fires are now estimated at up to 15 billion dollars. [This entry is part I of a double-issue today, part II about Pakistan is here]. Collected here are recent photographs from the Russian wildfires. [See previous entry]. (36 photos total)

Stunning images as always. Terrible events in Russia. Strange that the UK media (BBC in particular) don't seem to be giving it much coverage ...

From now on it will be either burning hot or bone-freezing cold.

Вчера в Перми сменился ветер, было прохладно и наконец то рассеялся дым от лесных пожаров =). Сегодня как проснулся открыл окно - духота хлынула в лицо и дым - также интересно что Солнце скрыто за плотной дымкой а жара стоит как будто в пустыне! Быстрее бы зима наступила - холод в такое время хочется как никак сильно... за картинки большое спасибо, не что лучше не расскажет об новостях как фотография!!!

We have friends moving to the U.S from Russia..legally. through email they have stated that

" we are almost dying in this smoke over here ((((( it's impossible to breath normally, all people are using masks if possible, if not - they just use wet towels or something else to prevent danger.
You can see here how Moscow' downtown looked like last night - today it's not better. (There is a link under the small photo - if you press it you can see the photo gallery). Today the 90 y.o. temperature record for that particular day was broken - 104 F. Usual daily temp is about 100F for the last 3 weeks, with smoke and NO wind at all. I can't remember such terrible summer in Moscow."

Finnish media is giving lots of coverage about Russian forest fires. Mostly it's just Finnish people complaining about smoke and bad air quality, and cursing Russians for not putting the fires down. Whole villages are burning down in Russia, dozens of people have died, and here in Finland we bitch about smoke...

Whenever there is a war-like situation almost every country in the first world thinks about sending troops and getting involved, just to make sure there will not be any negative influence on economics. But seeing a whole country burning, the first world does not even think aloud about sending troops, machinery, planes, tanks or whatever could help to fight this threat.

I know that for political crisis there are contracts that regulate responsibilities etc.. But why don't we just f*** on agreements and do whatever we can to help each other in situations like this one? Send everyone and everything out to extinguish the fires and help people back on their feet. Simply because we are human(s). You get my point?

I don't understand why Russia gets all the attention when MODIS says half of Africa is burning?

According to the FAQ 50 m² is the smallest detectable fire under perfect conditions but 1000 m² is normal minimum, so no it isn't cooking fires.

Posted by BGE August 12, 10 07:53 PM

Yes, they are certainly amazing pictures. I was just up in Whistler BC Canada last week and the day I arrived the air looked as hazy as it does in many of the photos. It didn't dawn on me right away the reality of the situation - the fact that I get asthma from smoke inhalation and that the mountains, which I had specifically come to hike around on top of, would remain virtually shrouded in smoke and dust for days. There were/are several forest fires about 130 kilometers north of Whistler. I stayed four days, hoping the air quality would improve - it didn't - so I wound up running seven miles a day inside on a treadmill a the Meadow Park Sports Centre. I've been going up to Whistler every August for about ten years and this year is the first time I've seen the mountains shrouded by anything than a little morning mist.

As a child of the "cold war" I take perverse pleasure in seeing that the Russian government can no better protect its citizens from nature than ours. Always a tragedy with loss of life, property and disruption of commerce. Kak zhal!

Posted by Don Poremski August 13, 10 08:55 AM

yulia hi! i agree with your basic point that it is a tragic that the soviet is kind of gone and that russia is just a tiny nation like africa or state of ohio.

maybe if less fires happened they could have better time.

just watch out for the famous russian bears in the trees.......

Posted by Amil August 13, 10 09:33 AM

Putin should better sit on his own place and think about how to help all those who lost their homes and not to show off pretending he is extinguishing the wild fires!!

Posted by Diane August 13, 10 02:45 PM

Does anyone notice that not a single photo shows a firefighter wearing even the simplest of masks..they are trying to fight a massive conflagration by dragging a tiny 8" pipeline through the woods and civilians beating at flames with branches? It is a desperate situation, worsened by the ominous threat of proximity to Chernobyl and their primary nuclear resaerch site.
A tragedy for the people of Russia and for the earth.
And, despite this drought, and the dramatic acceleration of melting polar ice caps, one can only ponder how it is that some people are so foolish that they believe we, the human population, are not the causation of global warming, through our profligate use of fossil fuels...and some people do not even seem to grasp what an ignoramus sch as Sarah Palin , as she espouses "drill,baby drill", and other earth-damaging horrors.
What does it take to wake up what one would think should be educated, responsible perole?

Havn't these Russians ever heard of a hose, not just a fire house but a garden hose. Nah they prefer to use tree branches. Seems kind of counterproductive to use branches to put out a forest fire.

Преступно-халатное отношение правительства России к разрастающимся пожарам довело российскую глубинку до катастрофы с гибелью людей и уничтожением поселений, чтобы потом принимать
героические меры и, опять же, гнать солдатиков на выручку народу.
Правительство России не обеспечило безопасность своих граждан и их имущества и ДОЛЖНО уйти в отставку вместе с Гарантом - это как максимум! А, как справедливый минимум, министр Шойгу ДОЛЖЕН быть снят с занимаемой должности за халатность и отдан под справедливый суд.

Я работаю пожарным у нас выезд на лесной пожар происходит только в том случае если огонь угрожает населенному пункту или объектам промышленности и инфраструктуры, в остальных случаях это дело лесничества в котором работают несколько человек c мизерной зарплатой и минимумом оборудования которое состоит из нескольких лопат и мотопомпы. Как результат, имеем то что имеем.

Will you laugh or maybe you will say "nice" standing at the place where you house had been standing, and now there is only ash on that place? First imagine that this tragedy has happen to you and then say "nice,nice.." and some of comments are so contemptuous. i mean, attitude to Russia is so angry. Stupid stereotypes will always make our planet unhappy)

A scorched earth policy is a military strategy or operational method which involves destroying anything that might be useful to the enemy while advancing through or withdrawing from an area

Posted by moose August 15, 10 02:41 AM

Los incendios en Rusia han removido parte de los residuos radioactivos de Chernobyl y dado que la atmósfera es una sola, en un enfoque sistémico (Teoría General de Sistemas), las partículas que van al aire, se distribuyen a kilómetros de distancia, afectando a otras áreas: un fenómeno que ocurre en un paisaje, también afecta a los demás entornos, cercanos y lejanos, nadie está exento de sufrir los efectos de esta devastación. Aumenta el dióxido de carbono en la atmósfera, se genera oscurecimiento parcial, aumenta la temperatura y de derriten los hielos eternos, o sea teoría de causa-efecto. Lo importante es que seamos capaces de readecuar nuestras acciones en beneficio del sistema Tierra.

It is really too bad that we have so many ignorant people making derogatory comments against people that have been devastated by nature. It's no wonder we don't have peace in our wonderful world, how sad. Maybe if we put a little more God in our lives we would be spared some of these disasters. How can anyone not feel pain for the Russian people when they have lost everything. And they say kids are cruel. Mother Nature is always beautiful even when she is angry at the worlds people. My prayers are with the people not necessarily the government.

Кара Всевышнего!

На территории Российской империи продолжают бушевать лесные пожары. Огненная стихия охватила уже 20 регионов. За минувшие сутки огонь перебросился на Ростовскую область и Дагестан. Россия в огне: уже есть первые жертвы лесных пожаров. Полыхают леса на Камчатке, Чукотке, Урале и Сибири. Однако самая сложная ситуация по-прежнему остается в центральной России и Поволжье. В некоторых регионах масштабы бедствия таковы, что уже впору говорить о региональной катастрофе. Погорельцы в Нижегородской области побили мэра Выксы, а на главу МЧС пытались бросаться с кулаками. Центральные СМИ во главе с руководством России пробуждают патриотизм через пожары. Однако на той же климатической зоне находятся Белоруссия и Украина, но у них не горят леса. Кто же виноват в этих массовых пожарах? Не устраивают ли поджоги «партизаны»? Могут ли спасти нас от кары Всевышнего, совершенные нами добрые дела?

Потому не слушайте тех кто говорит, что это "за грехи" их не мало, мы все знаем... но те кто так говорит лишь провоцирует агрессию. Мира. Добра. Благополучия.

after seeing fires like this wipe several towns of the map near my home in melbourne last year i have great sympathy, then the backlash of people blaming politians, global warning and even the environmentalists! Then you have the blind who look to God! Dont you think fire is a natural part of nature and that before we spread to every part of this globe that fires were part of the natural order. Sympathy to the ones who lost their lives or homes and admiration to the brave people who try to defend the homes.

Lisa, it's not a parody. It's a bucket of 12-15 tons of water or more than a big fire truck tank dropping to the edge of fire. It is very effective if it hit on target. The point is that there are many places without roads and water sources in our forests.

18, 28 and 30 pictures are with wrong white balance to look them more dramatic than they really are. Shame for those photographers. Pictures are good but they should be realistic as they are, colors too.

Когда дым с Москвы дошел до Питера, я ужаснулась, представив, что в столице - ад.
Стихия - страшное дело.
Сочувствую всем, кто пострадал от этих бедствий.
Авторам фото - огромный респект, отразили происходящее превосходно!

When the smoke came from Moscow to St. Petersburg, I was horrified, imagining that in the capital of our country - hell.
Element - a terrible thing.
I feel sorry for all those affected by these disasters.
Photo by - a huge Respect, reflected what is happening perfectly!

Классные фотографии. Даже и не верится, что это было.

Фотографии действительно хорошие и не воспринимайте как обиду то, что люди ето заметили. Если бы не фото, многие даже не узнали бы что в России такое творится! От них сердце разрывается, кото-то свою трагедию вспомнит, а кто-то рванет на помощь. Как жаль, что у такой богатой, красивой и могучей страны нет достойного хозяина! А ни в чем ни повинным людям расхлёбывай. У меня ком в горле.

Я знаю, что значит потерять свой дом и родного человека в огне. Но у меня это случилось еще в прошлом году. Поджег какой-то урод...
Могу вам только посочувствовать.
Однако, нас (город, где я живу) эти пожары почти не коснулось - лишь в середине августа пару дней был дым.

I know how to lose a house and near relation in fire. But it happened with me a year ago. Someone ass did it with us...
I just can sympathize with you in your sorrow.
Any way those fires almost didn't harm us (I mean our town), just some smoke was here a few days in middle of this August.

effects of our ignorance when it comes to the environment

Клоун за штурвалом самолета!
Героизм подчиненных - показатель бездарности руководства!
Жалко, что не канализацию прорвало - какие бы снимки Путина бы были!
