Russia – June 28th, 2012

Hundreds of wildfires continue to burn across Russia, and more than 14 new fires have broken out over the past 24 hours (click here for previous images). While eleven of them have been put out, firefighters are still struggling to extinguish another 32 blazes. Authorities say the fires do not pose a threat to residential areas.

Here, smoke from fires north of the border area between Russia (above) and Mongolia (lower right) and Kazakhstan (lower left) can be observed blowing towards the south. Visible in the lower right quadrant is Mongolia’s Great Lakes Depression, including the large, rounded Lake Uvs Nuur.
