An absolute temperature record of 37.2 degrees Celsius (98.9 degrees Fahrenheit) was registered in Moscow on Monday, a spokesman for the local meteorological bureau reported on Monday.

An absolute temperature record of 37.2 degrees Celsius (98.9 degrees Fahrenheit) was registered in Moscow on Monday, a spokesman for the local meteorological bureau reported on Monday.

"The previous record of 36.8 degrees Celsius [98.2 Fahrenheit] was recorded in 1920," the spokesman said.

July 2010 has become the hottest month on record in Moscow.

Temperatures across much of western Russia have topped 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) during the past five weeks, causing peat bog fires and creating what is thought to be the worst drought since 1972.

Russian environmentalists suggest that the heat wave may be a symptom of global warming.
