December 2012 In Russia And Ukraine

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!

  1. yes the difference is that, when you are in ukrain and it is -35 , it’s quite ok, but in Lithuania for ex. it is -15, and you cannot stand it (differences in hummidity)

  2. What the hell??? In Fort MacKay in Alberta, where i work -40 celsium first time was back in the beginning November…Minus 30-35 it’s normal morning temperature…It’s just summer in Ukraine and Russia for me…
