- Putin Orders First Ever Nationwide Nuclear Drill, Prepares Nuclear Bomb Test at Arctic Circle
by MAGYAR HÍRLAP, https://rmx.news/
The drill will be held just four days ahead of Putin’s 71st birthday
Russia will hold its first nationwide drill simulating widespread nuclear strikes on the country, daily Magyar Hírlap writes. The one-day nuclear attack exercise is based on the assumption that NATO will launch a nuclear strike on Russia, destroying 70 percent of Russian housing and life-support facilities. In the scenario, martial law is imposed in the country and a full-scale mobilization is ordered.
The test will also model the secondary threat posed by damage to nuclear power plants and other key facilities. State and regional authorities will have to organize emergency rescue teams to provide food, medical supplies and protection against radiation. According to the preparatory document, there is a need to prepare for an escalation of war, including a global conflict involving nuclear powers.
The permanent relocation of the population from the life-threatened zone will be similar to Chernobyl, involving an internal population transfer on an unprecedented scale. Putin, meanwhile, is moving to one of his nuclear bunkers around the country to escape the simulated nuclear Armageddon. In the event of a real nuclear war, he has a fleet of “Doomsday” Il-80 Maxdome aircraft that can act as an air control center.
