Forest fires in Siberia is an annual thing, and I don't think there is much support for attributing them to climate change.
I have a memory from my first flight over Siberia, between Helsinki and Tokyo in 1999, of forest fires. For hours and hours plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the land as we flew over Siberia. I don't know if the summer of 1999 was a particular bad fire season, but it was a pretty spectacular sight.
well according to the reports, the climate has warmed so much there that Russia is looking forward to doing farming there.... it has been 20 F above normal for the last six months or so, which is amazing.
You are talking about the 11 year pattern of extreme heat which is due to the solar cycle, we have that here also, the summers of 1933, 1944, 1955, 1966, 1977, 1988, 1999, 2010 were particularly hot for their decades (and seem to be getting hotter.) There was a little variability among them, mostly due to the ENSO state. Based on that, summer 2021 should be particularly hot also.

Five months into 2020, and there has been a huge, record-breaking warm anomaly over Asia (up to +8°C).
If 2020 goes on to be the warmest recorded year, despite the lack of an El Niño event, then this year's monstrous Asian anomaly will be the reason why.https://t.co/vjpQnxMaHJ?amp=1
The national average for Russia has been +5.3 °C above normal during the first five months of 2020.
That breaks the previous record by a massive 1.9 °C.
That's the largest January to May anomaly ever observed in any national average.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/18/climate/climate-change-pregnancy-study.html?smid=tw-share
Climate Change Tied to Pregnancy Risks, Affecting Black Mothers Most
Women exposed to high temperatures or air pollution are more likely to have premature, underweight or stillborn babies, a look at 32 million U.S. births found.
WASHINGTON — Pregnant women exposed to high temperatures or air pollution are more likely to have children who are premature, underweight or stillborn, and African-American mothers and babies are harmed at a much higher rate than the population at large, according to sweeping new research examining more than 32 million births in the United States.
The research adds to a growing body of evidence that minorities bear a disproportionate share of the danger from pollution and global warming. Not only are minority communities in the United States far more likely to be hotter than the surrounding areas, a phenomenon known as the “heat island” effect, but they are also more likely to be located near polluting industries.
