In Russia, they are convinced that the apocalypse is approaching. Which is why specialist companies offer a wide variety of solutions: private bunkers and even Noah’s ark to save their owner from the flood predicted by Vanga.
“End of the World” or “End of the World” is called a two-day intensive course, held in late December near Moscow, with the idea of preparing participants for possible future catastrophes. Not only strong young people but also whole families with children who are trained in crossbow shooting, swimming in cold water, street fighting, managing a jeep in wetlands, etc. are interested in the activities. Among the learned abilities is what to do if you fall into a hole in the ice, for example, or how to sew a wound with just a needle and thread. The theoretical part includes lectures on the dangers of global warming, nuclear disasters and wars for natural resources. The organizer of the course, Danila Andreev, provides the participants with instructions on how they could restore the functionality of the old bomb shelters.
The business with the VIP bunkers
Danila Andreev is the CEO of Spetsgeoproject and has enjoyed increasing popularity lately. He does not believe in end-of-the-world scenarios, but believes that threats of natural disasters, nuclear infections, terrorism or biochemical attacks are on the rise and require appropriate preventative measures.
Spetsgeoproekt (an abbreviation for geological special projects) deals with the construction and modernization of bunkers in Moscow and other regions of Russia. These are bomb shelters whose construction was legally regulated after the end of World War II, and their numbers correspond to the number of inhabitants in the respective settlement. In peacetime, bunkers are mainly used for garages or warehouses, says Andreev. But in case of need, they should be ready to shelter the working population – as recently stated on state television.
For several years now, Andreev has been increasingly involved in the construction of private VIP bins. The idea was given to him by a Russian Jew who, when visiting the United States, was impressed by local anti-nuclear shelters built near some of California’s luxury homes. According to Andreev, in the event of a disaster, defense must be organized in three phases: first, against a terrorist attack, explosion or flood, then – to survive in the weeks following the incident, for which sufficient supplies of air, water and food, and finally, when leaving safe haven, it can be guaranteed to cope with the conditions in a devastated environment.
Something in between a submarine, a safe and an ark
The bunkers built by Spetsgeoproject are better than the American ones, the head of the company is convinced. Because they are based on very well-developed Soviet technologies prepared in time for the Heads of State. Facilities between 35 and 200 square meters, which cost from 100,000 euros upwards, are equipped with special concrete walls such as nuclear power plants. The ventilation systems match those of space stations and submarines, and the doors are like Swiss bank safes. Accumulators and gasoline generators provide autonomy in the power supply. Sensors measure nuclear, bacterial and chemical loads. Protective clothing and supplies of essential foods and medicines are also available. Or – as promised by the Spetsgeoproekt catalog: absolute security for the selected!
Naturally, the names of Andreev’s clients are kept secret. The only exception is pop concert producer Alexei Burda, who commissioned a bunker for eight people as a base for his summer cottage. Burda has no doubt that the disaster is coming: there will be a cold in Europe soon as the Gulf Stream will change direction. Before that, however, the euro will collapse and Turkey declares war.
The predictions of Vanga and Nostradamus
Burda draws these conclusions on the basis of Nostradamus and Vanga’s predictions. He sees as confirmation of his theses and the frequent attacks on his friends’ villas. At the same time, he is not quite sure that the bunker will protect him and is considering moving to London.
The new year’s flood is also a new flood, as Vanga predicted, Alexei Burda notes. In the event that this happens, former military engineer Yevgeny Ubijko has constructed a steel Noah’s Ark. The metal capsule, which has room for four people, is covered with four insulating layers and can swim, hold in hot lava, roll or roll upside down. The model, which costs $ 80,000, is packed with batteries, computers, water, concentrated air and astronaut food for up to 40 days. Even seed acquisition and a fresh start after the flood are thought of.
