Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold an emergency meeting adressing fires at numerous key facilities and processing plants across Russia. According to the Kremlin, the meeting will be attended by local government leaders, the minister of emergency situations, the minister of natural resources, and top military officials.
While Russia has a fire season, key facilities have been burned down since the war began with little to no explanation. Key Russian lawmakers have speculated that Ukraine or the United States may be conducting sabotage operations within Russia in an attempt to create chaos in the country.
