As seen at Freeper this is the sort of thing that would have caused a lot of consternation during that era of the Cold War.
Soviet/Russian Civil Defense exercise on a massive scale:
"40 Million Russians To Take Part In 'Nuclear Disaster' Drill, Days After US General Warns (TR)"
"As relations between Russia and the US disintegrate as a result of the escalating proxy war in Syria, which today culminated with Putin halting a Plutonium cleanup effort with the US, shortly before the US State Department announced it would end negotiations with Russia over Syria, tomorrow an unprecedented 40 million Russian citizens, as well as 200,000 specialists from 'emergency rescue divisions' and 50,000 units of equipment are set to take part in a four day-long civil defense, emergency evacuation and disaster preparedness drill, the Russian Ministry for Civil Defense reported on its website"
AGAIN DURING THE ERA OF THE COLD WAR SUCH EXERCISES GENERATED A LOT OF NEGATIVE CONCERN WITHIN THE U.S. MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT.
It was estimated the Soviets would take FIVE DAYS to place their population in nuclear shelters prior to an atomic war with the United States. Preparations that would be detected and causing the American nuclear strike force to go on high alert!!
Vlad is making a big mistake with such a "drill". ONLY creates concerns where NONE should exist.
Для офицеров ГРУ. Пожалуйста, скажите мистеру Путину, чтобы остановить!
