High fire risk will remain in large parts of  Ukraine, except in its western regions, due to dry weather and heat wave with daytime temperatures reaching as high as 35-39 degrees Celsius, the Ukrainian Emergencies Ministry's weather forecasting center reported.

In particular, the issue concerns the country's southern and eastern regions, as well as Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk, Sumy, Chernihiv, Kirovohrad, Cherkasy regions and the steppe part of Crimea, where temperatures will hit 40-42 degrees Celsius in some places.

On Monday morning, Kyiv was blanketed by smoke with a smell of burning.

The Ukrainian Emergencies Ministry declined to name the cause of smoke, but did not exclude that it had been caused by forest and peat fires in the Moscow region.
