This month about 40 Ukranians have already frozen to death. Though the temperatures are not so low compared to some Russian regions. For example, in the central and eastern Ukraine it is about -28 (-10-18F). The frost was followed by snowfalls - some districts are covered with snow 53 cm high (21'). In Russia the situation is not much better - this winter is trully Russian!
