Several regions of the aggressor country Russia were suddenly hit by heavy snowfall. As a result of heavy precipitation, traffic on the roads is paralyzed, and Russian citizens complain of power outages.

According to weather forecasters, Russian cities will continue to be covered with snow in the coming days. This is reported by propaganda Russian media.

Residents of Yekaterinburg complained about the heavy snowfall, which caused a traffic apocalypse on the streets. The Yekaterinburg energy supply company Rosseti Ural said that such weather effects had not been observed in the Middle Urals for the past 20 years.

There was also a heavy snowfall in the Sverdlovsk region. Trees are falling down in the region's settlements under the weight of the snow. Drivers have difficulty climbing hills and are forced to push their vehicles due to the bad weather.

At the same time, the Russian Emergencies Ministry announced that heavy snowfall will continue through May 4. As a result, icy conditions are expected on the roads and, as a result, problems with transportation.

"This is the morning in the Sverdlovsk region. The region has been hit by heavy snowfall. In some districts, there are problems with electricity and the Internet as wires are broken due to falling trees and snow," Russians complain online.

A huge traffic jam has formed on the Perm-Yekaterinburg highway, and the roads are covered in snow. In this regard, it was decided to completely restrict traffic until the situation stabilizes.

In several towns in the Sverdlovsk region, heavy snow also led to cut power lines and fallen trees. Moreover, the level of precipitation reached such a level that some entrances to high-rise buildings were blocked.

As a reminder, in the Russian city of Ulan-Ude, a part of the city's residents were evacuated due to a "landscape fire" that spread from the forest to the city's buildings. According to the mayor of Ulan-Ude, Igor Shutenkov, the fire "disrupted power supply, and there are fires in the private sector."

Earlier, it was reported that old uranium wells at the Dobrovolnoye Uranium Mine in the Zverinogolovsky district in the Kurgan region of the Russian Federation were flooded. Environmentalists believe that the radioactive solution got into the Tobol River and this will cause an increase in diseases in the region.

As reported, in the Tyumen region of the Russian Federation, the water level in the Ishim River rose by 140 centimeters overnight, up to 10.5 meters. This is a record high for the last 27 years.
