More than two million hectares on fire in Siberia, with tundra on fire destroying the permafrost.

The worst-hit regions are Krasnoyarsk, Yakutia and Irkutsk in a summer fire season seen as worse than recent years in the spread and intensity of the infernos.

Some 784,931 hectares of wildfires are raging on permafrost zones including the Arctic in Yakutia — officially Sakha Republic — and the Khanty-Mansi autonomous region, causing possibly irreparable damage to the tundra.
