China will donate 1 million U.S. dollars and deliver humanitarian aid goods worth 20 million yuan (2.93 million U.S. dollars) to help Russia fight a series of menacing fires, China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) announced Wednesday.

China has put into action an emergency humanitarian aid response, with relief goods to be delivered to Russia soon, Yao Jian, a spokesman with the MOC said in a brief statement posted on its website.

Wildfires caused by ongoing heat and drought have been raging in Russia's 17 regions, leaving more than 50 people dead and 3,500 others homeless, according to local media reports.
