The Secretary of the Russian National Security Council touched upon the situation with the Yellowstone volcano in the United States, which is considered the most dangerous “sleeping” volcano in the world.

Patrushev added: “If (the volcano) wakes up, it will be an unprecedented catastrophe. It is capable of erupting thousands of times more often than those known to mankind. Observations show that over the years the activity of the volcano increases, and the magma in it very quickly approaches the surface. The number of earthquakes is also increasing. In the surrounding caldera, it increases, up to 2000 earthquakes per year.”
