Why USSR Produced Tin Canned Water?

This thing you see on a photo above is tin can of.. regular drinking water – that’s what it says on it: “Canned drinking water, net weight 240 g. Use canned water in extreme cases, try to collect raining water”. So what were the most extreme cases when you needed a canned water?

 First of all these tins of water were part of emergency rations in different types of bomb shelters across USSR. “Don’t drink this water in your first day” was stated in bold on those cans, so they were saved for somebody who had to stay in a shelter longer than one day.

Another ground op people who needed canned water were sailors.  Those canned water tins also were given to the sailors to be used in case their ship is sunk and they found themselves in open seas.
