Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the Republic of Khakassia on Friday, where he inspected new housing for people who lost their homes in wildfires in the village of Krasnopolye alongside the regional governor, Viktor Zimin. The Russian leader also held a cat that survived the fires, stroking it before setting off to inspect plans for further housing. Some 31 people were killed and 6,000 people were left homeless by the fires.
