They noted that in mid-August the emergency mode in the Trans-Baikal National Park was lifted.

At present, a special fire regime continues to operate in the republic, the agency’s interlocutor informed.

In four regions of Russia - the Irkutsk region, the Krasnoyarsk Territory, Buryatia and Yakutia - an emergency mode was announced.

The Federal Forestry Agency estimated the economic damage from natural fires from the beginning of the year at 7 billion rubles.
