Watch Now: Ukraine Declares State of Emergency as Spring Starts With “record snowfalls”.

RT is reporting that Ukraine has declared a state of emergency in its capital city, Kiev, and surrounding districts as Spring begins with  “record snowfalls”.

It reports that

The situation in the city is so dire that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich has signed a special decree urging all government agencies to provide maximum assistance to victims of the snowstorm.

The military is also involved in rescuing the city from its snowbound condition as 550 servicemen are deployed to the capital to aid the community services.

A month’s worth of snow fell in less than 24 hours as record cold and snow hit Ukraine and Russia. Military and civilian forces are being deployed in a desperate effort to keep entrances to shops and metro stations clear of snowdrifts, let alone the roads.

Weather forecasters are saying this Spring is likely to be the coldest in decades, with the freezing wintery weather expected to grip until the end of the month with temperatures well below freezing:

The snow front is moving eastward and is expected to hit Moscow on Saturday evening or Sunday, lasting until almost the end of March. A gale warning is announced in Russia’s capital and the Moscow Region.

The synoptic service say that the current March may become the coldest in Moscow in the last 33 years as they forecast temperatures of around minus 9 or 10 degrees Celsius, which is around nine degrees below average.

Meanwhile, our source was unable to confirm rumours that Al Gore and Michael Mann had been planning to address Kiev University this weekend on the subject of global warming.
