It might be time to dust off that bunker and stockpile some MRE’s and gallons of water. That’s because over in Russia, Vladimir Putin has organized a MASSIVE “training exercise” that will last at least four days and move 40 million Russian citizens. That is more people then live in the entire state of California. Um… Vlad? Is there any particular reason that this extremely large amount of people would need to be evacuated this week?
The Russians are billing the huge evacuation as a practice drill. According to The Ministry for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disaster these people are being prepared for a large natural or man-made disaster. So either Putin knows a huge asteroid is heading toward Russia or he is preparing for World War III. It’s about time; we have been waiting for the third one to come out since the 80’s.
Making nuclear winter great again.
From October 4th until October 7th Russian authorities have said that 200,000 emergency workers, 50,000 pieces of emergency equipment and the 40 million human beings- twice the population of New York State will be participating in what some are calling a “war game.” The war game will have three stages including awareness, planning and evacuation. All of this has some western governments evacuating their pants a bit.
Can you imagine the outcry if the US government tried to displace 40 million residents for a “war game?” However this might just be Russia’s version of the “Jade Helm conspiracy” where the US military was conducting a training exercise, but some folks KNEW it was a plot to take over Texas (spoiler alert: the US government already controls Texas).
Emergency workers totally not preparing for a retaliatory nuclear strike.
The Russian Ministry of Civil Defense issued a statement saying,
“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 defense and human protection at social institutions and public buildings are also planned to be checked. Response units will deploy radiation, chemical and biological monitoring centers and sanitation posts at the emergency areas, while laboratory control networks are going to be put on standby.”
Hopefully we are all still here next week to see if everyone did a good job with the drill.
Do you think Russia is just running a disaster drill or is this something much bigger, like the start of World War III?
