Recently relations between the United States and Russia have disintegrated as a result of the ever escalating proxy war going on in Syria. Russia has conducted a nuclear drill with over forty million Russian citizens to take part in the emergency drill. The particular drill will also involve federal and regional executive authorities as well as other local governments.
- 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.
- While the ministry does not specify what kind of “man-caused disaster” it envisions, it would have to be a substantial one for 40 million Russians to take part in the emergency preparedness drill.
- Oleg Manuilov, director of the Civil Defence Ministry explained that the exercise will be a test of how the population would respond to a “disaster” under an “emergency” situation.
