I accidentally found some good photos of the subject, it's astonishing. This facilities are located in Belarus and were abandoned after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Wow man, those are fascinating! S and F!

It really does make you wonder though, how many installations like this are still up and running, either in Russia, or the USA or UK...

Amazing photos you've dug up there, seriously reminding me of playing Half Life 2 Episode 2...

Not to take away from his good work , but why do urban ex'ers always take photos of the air filtration system.
These boys have a fetish for that stuff I swear

Wow, thanks for posting these.

I love seeing these secret and derelict places, I don't know what it is about it, perhaps a mixture of appreciation for ingenuity, wonder at what must exist now, and happiness that such places have never really been used for purpose.

It's remarkable how much we waste, after so much effort and time has gone into these places. They should be opened up and renovated, sold out to private buyers, or otherwise utilised in some way.

I'd buy a bunker!

I think it's a general boys thing, we love mechanics and one of the largest aspects of these places is the air filtration, power and water...

I love it, and I'm not much of a manly man

Thank you so much for posting. It's amazing how quickly those sites have deteriorated. Hard to believe only 20 years ago those sites were armed to the teeth and poised to unleash their arsenal against the West.

Their British equivalents have shared the same fate. The British ROTOR command centres were abandoned in the early 1990's. One or two have been converted into museums but the rest just lie abandoned. We visited a ROTOR station a few years ago, at Troywood, Anstruther on the Scottish east coast, it's now a museum. You'd honestly drive right past it were it not for the roadsigns pointing to "Secret Bunker". All that's uptop is a farmhouse ... enter that, go down a flight of stairs and your in a vast underground complex. Quite amazing. Some of the others, though, are in as poor a condition as these former Soviet ones ... so be careful if you're doing some urbex.

Here's a link to a website with most of the British WW3 facilities.
