October 2016MOSCOW, Russia – Moscow said it will hold an unprecedented “large-scale” all-Russian civil defense drill for four days starting October 4, 2016, the Russian Ministry for Civil Defense said on its website. The large-scale drill will see the participation of 40 million Russian citizens and 200,000 specialists from “emergency rescue divisions.” The all-Russian civil defense drill involving federal and regional executive authorities and local governments is to prepare for “large natural and man-caused disasters in the Russian Federation.” Director of the Civil Defense Ministry Oleg Manuilov said the drill will test how Russians would respond to a “disaster” under an “emergency” situation. According to the Daily Star, Putin’s ministers announced on Friday they have built underground shelters for an atomic attack which could hold all the 12 million residents in Moscow.
