    Putin Has Ordered the Army to Help Tackle Massive Wildfires Raging in Siberia



    Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the army to help tackle massive wildfires raging in Siberia and other regions in the east.

    The decision was taken after Mr Putin was briefed on the growing crisis by the head of the emergencies ministry.

    About three million hectares (7.4 million acres) have been affected, in what Greenpeace is describing as an "ecological catastrophe".
    Many local residents say not enough is being done to tackle the fires.

    More than 700,000 people have signed a petition to take tougher action and declare an emergency across the vast Siberia region.



    There has been widespread anger after comments by emergencies officials that they are not planning to tackle wildfires in remote uninhabited areas because there is no direct threat to people.

    Long Topic Donald Trump has offered help to Russia in combating the wildfires



    President Donald Trump has offered help to Russia in combating wildfires raging in Siberia, the Russian Embassy said on Wednesday.

    During a phone call between the two leaders, Trump offered American assistance to tame the fires that have engulfed 6.7 million acres of the Siberian woods. The Russian Embassy cited a Kremlin statement that said President Vladimir Putin appreciated the gesture and would take Trump up on the offer if needed. For now, Putin told Trump that Russian military aircraft were deployed to control the situation.
