A Moscow library containing rare UN documents, ancient Slavic texts, and 14 million books is on fire

Very unfortunate news. Everyone appears to be safe though.

I hope that they will be able to salvage a portion of their collection.

Update: The fire lasted for over a day. At least 1 million items were destroyed/damaged.
