    I believe that you mean Moscow. Yes they have had a brutally hot summer in Moscow. Abnormal hot and dry weather has hit Russian regions in the summer of 2010. Many Russians are suffering from the record-breaking heat and the worst drought in 40 years. The average summer temperature should be in the lower 20'C and they have had a Summer full of temps in the 30's up to 37,5C.

    Moscow has a humid continental climate (Köppen climate classification Dfb) with warm, somewhat humid summers and long, cold winters. Moscow can experience heat waves but none as long or as intense as the one they have been experiencing this Summer.

    This summer has already seen 17 temperature records smashed as temperatures have steadily climbed from the high twenties Celsius in the middle of June, to the mid-thirties in July and now around forty degrees Celsius. Forecasters say this heat wave may last till September and may get even worse. Never have such temperatures been recorded in Moscow. The already stifling heat has been made worse by the outbreak of forest and turf fires in more than twenty regions, including Moscow.

    There are 250,000 people fighting forest fires in Russia and just 2 years ago they cut back on the number of Forest Wardens by 75% so this year has been especially difficult.

    It is believed that Global Warming is one factor invloved in ths heat as well as a stationary High pressure ridge that is keeping all of the rain clouds far away.

    I've never heard of "moskowa rasian". Are you sure you don't mean "Moskow, Russia"?
