In the Siberian region of Yakutia, home to nearly one million people, brutal winters are a normal part of life.

But even there, the temperatures are unusual this year going as low as minus 67 Celcius.

In January, it came close to Russia's coldest temperatures ever and even broke some thermometers.

Researchers say that one of the reasons for such a cold winter is the moving of cyclones.
