Trip to the Underground Moscow Nuclear Shelter

Trip to the Underground Moscow Nuclear Shelter

Mikhail and some of his friends went down into the one of the Moscow nuclear shelters prepared for emergency in case someone pushed the Red Button. That is a huge shelter which seats 2,700 people and can also hold cars. It’s over 2,000 square meters in area. Do you want to see what is inside – we can show you thanks to the photos and stories he brought from there.

So here is the entrance. The shelter itself is underground, 6.50 meter deep. Now some parts of the building is used as a warehouse.

The commander of the shelter reports on what’s going on.

And those are the employees of the shelter.

And the visitors.

And the medics from a local hospital who are responsible for this shelter.

Those are called “civilian gas masks”

Anti nuclear radiation costumes are in stock here, too.

Those guys are like from a movie.

This gadget is called “a device for radioactive and chemical scouting”. It probably tests the air and says if its safe yet or still not safe after the bombings.

These are the radioactivity meters.

So, if people of the neighborhood are so unfortunate that the NATO bombings begin, they would have to spend their nights in bunk beds like these. They are not very soft but they are safe. However, only 540 beds are here and as it can take up to 2,700 people they would need to sleep in turns as the rest of the space here is for sitting.

To me, in this photo they are too serious, like the war has already started and they are doomed.

“A water dispensary”. Stating the ration per person – three liters per person each 24 hours. 18 cubic meters total stored drinking water and 24 cubic meters of “technical” water. It would probably be radioactive water if it’s too close to the surface.

Mikhail says this horrible thing is a medical device to put in someones throat. Yuck.

More civilian gasmasks.

And some more metering devices.

And here are the visitors already fully dressed.

There is a special ventilation system in place that filters radioactive micro dust particles from the air and can also clean the air if biowarfare is used.

Sinks are covered with cellophane.

These special devices are to control the restrooms. Probably so that they do not get killed when people come to relieve their natural needs.

And this is the water supply. Water can come from the external water networks (assuming they are still intact and not disrupted) and also from the inner local tanks.

So they have emergency cars inside the shelter to use in case they need to make a quick run to the surface and back.

Mihail says that basically the shelter looked like it’s ready for the emergency and the only thing to keep in mind is to be fast enough to be able to reach it when it is time.

Hope you liked it and big thanks to Mikhail for his photos and the story!

  1. I don’t get why you always try to make NATO and Americans look evil when clearly in history its Russia and the Soviet Union that tried to start wars and got caught using spies in the west 90% of the time. I’m just saying…
    I’m not American I’m French…

      • I said that tried to start wars… I didn’t say that started… but in all that they are the one always pushing with their nuclear policies and after they blame the US… after all Stalin, Khrushchev and Putin are the ones pushing toward war…

      • If it wasn’t about NATO your terrorist would have taken back Ukraine back long ago… and probably more than half the ex soviet states as well so stop crying like a baby because NATO is stopping you from doing war crimes against those free countries that are now part or becoming part of Europe…

  2. What you have to remember is that the USA is the only country to have used nuclear weapons. I can see now why the Russians acted as they did during the cold war. Call it paranoia but if you were at school with a bunch of kids and one of them was famed for fistfights and another because he had used a shotgun on someone who was friends with the fist fighter, more than once, who would you be most wary of?
    I feel as if I was covertly indoctrinated with the belief that Russia was a bad place. I am British, Lord knows how bad the American kids were misguided from 3 years old?

    Reply
    • The US may have been able not to use their nuclear weapons on Japan. But who knows how many GI may have died because of this. “A la guerre comme à la guerre”, as we say in French. Beside this, you may remember Russia has tested the biggest nuclear weapon in the world. What for ?

      Russia is not a bad place in se. Neither are the US. Both have been guided by bad presidents (Bush in the US, Putin in Russia). Even Sarkozy in France or Blair in the US were bad. Does it make France or UK bad places ? Certainly not. Does it mean Bush, Putin, Blair and Sarkozy should be sent to the ICJ ? Definitely yes…

      • Why Putin bad president? Bad prezident always drunk Boris Yeltsin, Putin on my opinion know how rule country. But for USA and NATO better Yeltsin and doomed russian economic in 90s.

        Reply
        • Putin is as bad as Eltsin. Just another way. Yeltsin started to steal Russia’s wealth to his family’s benefit. Putin continues, with violence…

          If Putin was a good president, he would work on upgrading the country (water and electricity everywhere, decent roads and EVERYbody pays his taxes). Unfortunately he does not, and Russia is, on some parts of its territory, not better than the most backwards African countries…

  3. Putin is just another czar. Filling his pockets and making Russians believe that he is working for them, restoring their pride. Meanwhile Putin wears $45.000 watches of Patek Philippe, buys Western yachts for $45 million and builds a $50 million villa on the Black Sea coast. Who do you think is paying for all that?

    That is right. The people. Putin is just another corrupt thug.

    Reply
    • I wish he had been honest, because he could have been a great leader for the country. Unfortunately, he is not honest, liar, as thief as Yeltsin (maybe even more) and now warmonger, while the country still waits for descent roads. Just a shame…

      Reply
  4. Ah! So comments critical of Putin are now being removed from this website, eh? Admission that Putin is indeed the new czar; Russians fear him, even the Russians running this website. Sad, very sad.

    Reply
    • Oh, no. Wait. It wasn’t, sorry. It’s still awaiting moderation. But the comments did not load/show… Hmmm. Very strange. Must have been a technical problem.
