Sweltering weekend for Moscow

Moscow is facing its hottest weekend this year, with temperatures set to reach 33-34C.

Russia’s chief meteorologist Roman Vilfand warned that this was about eight degrees above average, and could prove dangerous to residents.

But he added that it was not at the same levels as last year’s record-breaking hot spell, when the mercury topped 35C.
