Why is Russia building 5000 bomb shelters?

This is freaking me out. Back in the day, Russia was sure that nuclear war was survivable. Maybe Putin still thinks so.

Nuclear war IS survivable, IF you do it right. The Russians at the very least have a plan. We, on the other hand, have O.

One of my friends has a neighbor that is building a pretty big bunker in his back yard. About thirty feet underground, I guess he's got about six-hundred square feet down there. Never seen it myself, I don't trust his engineering since he's a doctor.

Propaganda to convince their public that they are the victims not the aggressors.

Because Obama is starting a nuclear arms race in the middle east, and Obama is pushing NATO tanks right up against Russia's borders.

Putin can't trust America any more than Americans can.

Just breath deeply and let the chem-trail vapors from the planes flying over-head settle down to earth and lure you into a sense of peace & contentment.

I think Russian leaders like Putin really believe they can survive a nuclear attack if they strike first. Sadly, with the current president we have... they may be right.

This is from a country that can barely keep its navy floating much less training? With the price of oil down I don't think they have the money to finish any of that.

You can bet it is propaganda directed at their people. They have never been friends with us and it's certainly not because of our actions no matter who is in office.

How many people in Russia? How many people does each bomb shelter hold?

To provide employment.
