A two-storey bunker is hidden in the forest not far from a big military aerodrome. It was built in 1970s. After the bomber aviation had been de-escalated from Belarus, the bunker has been used as a communication center of air forces until 2003. Now it is completely abandoned.

  1. Very cool stuff.
    A warning to the photographer who bravely entered this place: Having worked in the underground for many years, I can tell you to beware of “dead air” in such places that lack ventilation underground. Don’t push your luck, the danger is very real in that you may enter such a place and never leave. How long can you breathe dead air? Not long enough.

    • Come look at factory I work in (lots of dead air, as well as “dead heads”). And concerning “the underground”- I don’t work in the underground, but I have to keep my beliefs underground; one cannot afford to be laid off in a capitalist system. Concerning this post: Stalinism needed paranoia like capitalism needs class division.

      • I feel your pain my friend. I believe it is your right to express your opinions no matter how wrong they are, just kiddin.
        Seriously, MW, if you were in a similar situation, say, in France you would be a hero, smoke a filter less cigarette and get laid much, French girls love a disgruntled socialist.

        • Ha, ha! I wouldn’t fit in in France; once you’re born in the U.S. you acquire the American individualism and genetic distrust of power. As much as one tries to deny it, Americans and Europeans ARE different.

  2. Authorities must try to introduce “abandon tourism” in former USSR ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !for the good of coming generations and also “abandoned sites” ! ! ! ! ! !

  3. This place was a defence against giant bombs, probably neuclear bombs. How many countries have neuclear bombs as “DEFENCE”. The world spends nearly two trillion dollars on defence. (What would you spend that money on?)

    It is simple, JUST REFUSE TO HURT ANY BODY ELSE .

    Reply
    • What needs to be done is outlaw the exporting of weapons.
      Then limit the amount of money spent on defense to a certain percentage of GNP, yet to be determined, say, 3 percent.
      It’s grotesque what governments spend on defense.

        • You go ahead. As long as there are differences between us, there will likely be arguments. And as long as there are arguments, there will likely be conflicts.

          It’s a chance I’m not willing to take, unless everyone else is ready to.

          • Geoff, I don’t think you would say the same thing If you were a Russian between 1941 and 1944. Or if you came to my grandparents home.

            And even if you won’t fight for your country, I will fight for mine. Clear?

        • And you are the same people that have absolutely no military history of your own, atleast not until you compare it to Swaziland. All you’ve ever done is go and cook for the Americans and the British, scrub their latrines, and just let them be your masters.

          It’s not the Russian Army that’s destroying Afghanistan is it? It’s NATO, the world’s most powerful and most lovable military. They have never killed a single civilian, never laid waste to even a single street, and have never committed any war crimes at all. The ultimate protectors of freedom and democracy, and what was it again, oh yes. Western imperialism.

          • Don’t be disheartened by ur comment ratings. Just keeping posting your pacifist ideas that have always been rejected and will continue to be rejected for the perceivable future.

            Reply
            • I apologize for my uncalled for and rude remark.

              ayaa I do believe we can have a world where the protector of freedom and democracy is just peoples care and consideration for other people.

              • Apology accepted. For my part, I’m sorry for lashing out at Australia like that. There is nothing with wrong with your ideas, it’s just that it doesn’t seem plausible. Some one else said that there will be no peace as long as there is a human race.
                I’m not taking it all back, especially not what I said about NATO in afghanistan, just making peace.

                Reply
            • Oh. So I should start again. Now that you’ve brought it up, just compare the Soviet operation to the NATO one. Pay special attention to committed forces, airpower available, tactical and strategic situation, civilian casualties and the resistance from the local people. And don’t forget the motives for invasion, both in 1979 and 2001.

    • Peace can be achieved. We must just get rid of our corrupted leaders, policians and banksters and have persons that truly works for the best of humanity..

  4. ayaa I do not expect you to take anything back, and you do not need to start again. Putting the 1979 to 1985 thing was an accident, please believe that, me and my computer do not get along very well. I think it is fantastic how you can read and write in English as well as (I imagine) Russian
