This week Russian authorities are conducting massive civil defense training involving 40 million people nationwide. The drill comes amid a spike in
tensions between Russia and the US after the collapse of the two nations’ cooperation in Syria.
The four-day exercise launched on Tuesday includes 200,000 rescue professionals. Almost 50,000 vehicles are part of the drill.
“Our priority during the drill is to train evacuation of the civilian population from potentially-risky areas,” Emergencies Minister Vladimir
Puchkov, who oversees all civil defense in Russia, told Interfax.
The drill is meant to test coordination between federal, regional and local authorities, feasibility of contingency plans for emergencies, the state
of civil defense infrastructure like shelters and emergency supply stockpiles, and other aspects of the system.
Emergency services are expected to “prepare suggestions on how to improve our potential,” the minister said.
Exercises such as these are held annually in Russia since 2012.
It is timed to October 4, which is Civil Defense Day in
At least THEY (The Russian population) are prepared and are not dumb downed compared to what other "certain" countries goverments are shoving down the
throats of their citizens with only a 3 minute memory span when it comes down to digging into the REAL news of what is going on on our planet and the
consequences of what certain governments and their leaders are creating for our future generations ...
Sad... but at the same time I say well done to the Russian people for staying real and preparing for what other 'ceratin" countries want the rest of
the world to follow...
