In Russia: All smoke, no fire. | Walter Duranty :: Our Man in Hell

In Russia: All smoke, no fire.

I’m back from the Russian “fires” and as usual the situation has been exaggerated by reactionary media outlets, including the Voice of America. Yes, there are some fires in Russia. Even in summer, some use them to heat kettles in their pleasant rural cottages. It is also a rather hot year, and in some locales, burning is being done out-of-doors, as one would expect. Carelessness in those circumstances can have unhealthy side-effects. Frankly it’s warmer here at home than it is in the Urals.

But as an eyewitness I can say that any report of a massive conflagration in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda. There are no actual forest fires or deaths from fires, but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to premature and partial cremation.
