Bomb shelters upgrade ordered by Russia’s Emergencies Ministry

ssObsolete bomb shelters will be reconditioned throughout Russia’s regions in a program driven by the Emergencies Ministry.  Shelters should conform to regulations “bringing them into proper condition and getting them ready for use for intended purposes”, Puchkov told ITAR-TASS, setting a year-end deadline to complete the work. Upgrades will be carried out in consultation with regional and local authorities, the minister said, adding that shelters that are maintained not by government institutions should be brought under public control.
