Sorry for being away from blogging for such a long time. Some real life events kept me busy, thank you all for the kind words of support about the fires in Russia. To be honest, I wasn't going to post about it until I received today the comment from Karin Corbin - well, we get so many contradictory news and reports, I decided that it would be better to write about it. As usual, sorry for my English.
As you know I live in Moscow, for the last week we had terrible toxic smog. That's what you could see just a day ago:
It was even worse outside Moscow, still is. Not enough people to fight fire, not enough equipment, you won't read it in newspapers, just from russian bloggers -they write in their blogs that in some regions people don't even try to put out the fires. Only now our government admitted that some are out of control. You feel really helpless seeing that our prime minister or president have to go to the suffering regions themselves just to try to control the situation. But seems like they can't do it. So anger is growing, nobody can't stop it.
My Mom came to visit me these days, and we basically had to stay at home. Thankfully, the smog has gone for now, but now the town I was born ( it's in Urals region) is suffering from smog.
Here (official site of Prime Minister) you can see web cameras from the villages that were destroyed by the fires. They were installed to control the reconstruction and rebuilding. Somehow there's no such link in English version of the site.
