According to the locals, it's hot, but nothing new and they have had heatwaves like this before.
I guess it just gets more airtime these days with some people waving it about as proof of manmade global warming, when in fact it's just cyclic
climate fluctuations experienced many times in mans history.
I must admit, sitting outside at an eastern restaurant on the banks of the Volga on the friday I was there, it was mighty tempting to just strip off
and jump in to cool down!
