​​“I drove through the cloud of these mosquitoes for several hundred metres,” Alexei, from Ust-Kamchatsk, told the Siberian Times.

“It wasn’t a pleasant experience as I could hardly see the road.

“I didn’t dare open my windows.

“Giant pillars of mosquitoes were visible everywhere I looked.

It is the female insects people need to look out for.

“These are male mosquitoes swarming around one of several females in order to mate – there is nothing wrong with this,” she said.

This sighting is an annual occurrence and the size of the swarms depends on weather conditions and how many mosquitoes there are, however, there appear to be more this year.

“It seems to be that there are many more this year than usual,” Alexei said.

The area is surrounded by tundra and swamps, an ideal home for the blood sucking insect.

This country now has the highest gold reserves per capita in Central & Eastern Europe

Hungary, an EU country with a population of around 10 million, has tripled its bullion stockpile, leapfrogging into the top third of global gold holders and the top three in the Central and Eastern European region.

The nation’s central bank raised its bullion holdings from 31.5 tons to 94.5 tons as of last month, the regulator said in a statement on Wednesday. The current level of bullion holdings is the highest in decades for the country.

Thanks to the central bank’s gold purchases, reserves per capita also tripled, surging from 0.1 ounce to 0.31 ounce. This allows Hungary to boast the highest gold reserves per capita among its peers in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the financial watchdog.

The regulator noted that increasing its bullion holdings was a continuation of a long-term strategy it adopted in 2018, when it increased the reserves tenfold from 3.1 tons to the previous level of 31.5 tons. However, the holdings reportedly remained unchanged for over two years. 

The recent addition to the national gold holdings was also linked to new risks arising from the coronavirus pandemic, the bank noted.  

“The appearance of global spikes in government debts or inflation concerns further increase the importance of gold in national strategy as a safe-haven asset and as a store of value,” it said in a statement.

Before the Covid-19 crisis hit, central banks’ demand for gold had reached record highs. However, many opted to cash out amid surging bullion prices in the wake of the pandemic. However, central banks tipped back into net purchases of gold in February, according to the World Gold Council (WGC). 

While the WGC said that central bank demand for gold remains uncertain, it still expects them to be net purchasers this year.
