Situation Update 19 June 2023
It’s been more than a month since Kyrios began her intervention on 8th May 2023 to extinguish the wildfires across the wide expanse north of Kazakhstan, stretching 1,200km from Yekaterinburg to Kurgan, Tyuman, Omsk and Novosibirsk.
We observed that rain has continued to fall in the intervention area and that the number of hotspots across the intervention area remained low. As such, Kyrios has decided to end this intervention.
