The Tyumen authorities have imposed high-alert mode due to the threat of wildfires since April 15. They have spread to five districts of the region due to the burning of dry grass. Governor Alexander Moor reported that.

According to Alexander Moor, fires have been recorded in the Abatsky, Ishimsky, Sladkovsky, Berdyuzhsky and Kazansky districts. The fires were caused by the burning of dry grass and the spread of fire from one territory to another.

According to the governor, law enforcement officers found four people guilty of arson. They will be held liable. The authorities have dispatched 477 people and 153 pieces of equipment to fight wildfires.

In addition, the governor instructed the heads of districts to strengthen local monitoring of the situation and identify violators.

In April 2021, forest fires in Tyumen Oblast became the largest in the last decade; the region came out on top in Russia in terms of their number. A total of about 200 thousand hectares were burned.

Alexei Yaroshenko, the head of the forest department of Greenpeace Russia, told 7x7 that the main cause of the fires was the burning of dry grass, which moved to forests, peat bogs, settlements. State structures started the burning of grass for "preventive" purposes.
