Snow apocalypse in Rostov region

Heavy snowfall hit Rostov region on Tuesday, and it was snowing until Friday. January 30, a state of emergency was imposed in the region.

Transport networks and other infrastructure of the two largest towns in the region – Rostov-on-Don and Taganrog – were paralyzed. As a result, supply of food and other goods became irregular. Rostov-on-Don looks like “Rostov-on-Snow” at the moment.
