The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations has recently claimed that 1/3 of Ukrainian protective shelters are not ready for evacuation of people. In fact 95% of shelters are not ready for something… Older generations know better what is hidden behind the ground, young people luckily do not even care that under almost every yard is a protective construction that may save a human life in case of technogenic accidents. Let’s see how such a construction should look like by the example of one Kiev shelter.
Massive diesel-generator for 50kW must provide the shelter with electricity when outer power lines are destructed.
People rarely come here but nevertheless everything is in its place. Necessary stuff is carefully packed waiting for its hour.
Filter-ventilation system is intended for air purification from chemical contaminants and radioactive dust.
It’s a hospital shelter so there are many stretchers here.

However almost all shelters represent plundered, burnt underground dumps…
