Video report about the fires in Russia

NEWSY has created a video that compiles segments from five different sources about the fires in Russia, which are burning during a record-setting heat wave.

My favorite part comes just after the commentator warns about mixing alcohol and swimming. A Russian gentleman trying to cool off at the beach says:

The best recipe for the heat is one-half liter of beer mixed with 50 milliliters of vodka. Drink it slowly then go for a swim.
