Environmentalists have warned that the scale of the blazes, across central and east Russia, could accelerate global warming, aside from any immediate effects on the health of inhabitants. ‘After reviewing a report from the emergency situations minister, Putin instructed the ministry of defence to join the effort to extinguish the fires,’ the Kremlin’s press service told Russian media. Around three million hectares (7.4 million acres) of land – roughly the size of Belgium – in the centre and east of the country were in the grip of fires on Wednesday, authorities said. Greenpeace has called the wild fires an ‘ecological catastrophe’.
