The Russian government has appealed to volunteers to help fire fighters with the wildfire emergency situation. “Anyone willing to help can call their regional emergency hotline”, stated a ministry official, adding that three toll-free numbers have been set up. The situation in Russia is dire; this morning Moscow was engulfed in black smoke from the fires that have been raging across the western side of the country for over a week.
