Russia significantly under-reporting wildfires - Greenpeace

16 Jun 2016, Guardian, the

Forest wildfires rampaging across Russia are being significantly under-reported by authorities, according to Greenpeace. Analysis of satellite data reveals 3.5m hectares have burned this year, while government statistics claim only 669,000 hectares. Understating the extent of wildfires delays assistance from other regions and can even lead to human casualties.
