Operational Shelter For Ministers

You’ve seen plenty of shelters scattered throughout the country but most of them were abandoned. This one, on the contrary, is operational and belongs to Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation. So in case of a war, revolution or nuclear explosion, it is here where ministers will take cover. So, welcome!
