Winter came to Europe. It is very cold. The temperature is below zero. People die in the streets. It is a very bad time for homeless people. 120 people died in the streets of Europe this winter. There is a very bad situation in Ukraine. 43 people died in Ukraine. Some homeless people drink a lot of alcohol, then they sleep and they die.

The temperature in some parts of Russia is 50 below zero. Russia doesn’t have a lot of gas now. It can’t send a lot of gas to Europe. Every day Russia needs the same amount of gas that Bulgaria needs in one year.

The temperature in Moscow is minus 20 in the day and minus 26 at night. The temperature in Bulgaria and Rumania is also very low. Sometimes it is minus 30. It is very, very cold.
