Record snowfalls and extreme sub-zero temperatures during Russia’s freezing winter have driven the number of deaths to more than 200, with 18 deaths reported on Tuesday alone.
This winter some 207 people have frozen to death, reports the Interfax news agency. Particularly affected is the Tyumen region in Western Siberia.
More than 4500 people have been treated since the onset of winter due to frostbite or hypothermia.
The Russian weather service forecast that temperatures will fall even farther in the days to come. In Moscow, it should cool during the day to minus 18 degrees Celsius, and at night, especially north of the capital, to as low as minus 27. degrees.
