Starting today, Russia is holding a massive four-day Cold War-style “civil defense” drill that will involved 40 million civilians and 200,000 emergency personnel through the 7th of October.
The drill’s timing cannot be missed, right after Russia decried America’s involvement leading to death and destruction in Syria and peace talks have broken down.
Via Daily Mail:
Following a breakdown in communication between the USA and Russia, the Kremlin has now organised the huge emergency practice drill – either as a show of force or something more sinister.
The drill will prepare Russian citizens for “large natural and man-made disasters”, according to the country’s Ministery for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disaster…
A spokesman said in a statement: “The main goal of the drill is to practice organisation of management during civil defence events and emergency and fire management, to check preparedness of management bodies and forces of civil defence on all levels to respond to natural and man-made disasters and to take civil defence measures.”
The statement said: “The drill will rehearse radiation, chemical and biological protection of the personnel and population during emergencies at crucial and potentially dangerous facilities.
“Fire safety, civil defence and human protection at social institutions and public buildings are also planned to be checked. Response units will deploy radiation, chemical and biological monitoring centres and sanitation posts at the emergency areas, while laboratory control networks are going to be put on standby.”
In addition, Russia just announced it will be drafting an additional 152,000 soldiers this fall.
History is repeating itself. It’s like we’re back in the 1950s, only people are much poorer with fewer jobs and even less of an idea what is going on in the world geopolitically.
Wonder if FEMA is going to try to get us to participate in something like that here?
