The Ukrainian hydro-meteorological center estimates that in Ukraine today, precipitation is unlikely to artificially cause forest fires.
This was announced during a briefing by the deputy director of the Ukrainian hydrometeorological center Anatoly Prokopenko, reports a correspondent of Ukrinform.
“In the world there is such a practice – the challenge of precipitation, but for this, of course, we need both technical means and the state of a synoptic situation, which would allow precipitation to occur from the clouds that exist. Currently, in principle, in the near future such a situation is unlikely, “he said.
