He made the corresponding statement at a coordination meeting in the Ryazan region.

“I ask the governors, primarily the regions of the Central and Volga Federal Districts, to organize work to update and increase the mineralized fire zones around settlements, taking into account the current fire situation ... to introduce a ban on visiting forests until the situation improves and suspend the hunting season until the fire situation stabilizes ", - TASS quotes him.

He also urged them to strengthen control over the implementation of measures for the fire-fighting arrangement of forests by tenants of forest plots.

Earlier it was reported that Kurenkov went to the Ryazan region in order to coordinate the extinguishing of large pockets of forest fires.
