(INTELLIHUB) — Russia is currently engaged in a massive civil defense training exercise encompasses over 40 million people, Oleg Manuilov, the Director of Civil Defense in Russia was quoted saying in a foreign press release dated Oct. 2.
Also attending the so called “exercise” — “more than 200 thousand professional rescue units, 50 thousand pieces of equipment […]” and top executives.
This comes just as relations with the United States took a twist, a turn for the worse, earlier this week behind the scenes. Make no mistake — this situation is indeed intensifying and foreign news outlets have already reported the likelihood that Russia will engage in global thermal nuclear war with the U.S. if provoked.
The alert was “given by civil defense structures in coordination with the regional and municipal authorities […] will be checked by the system of emergency population warning of disaster occurrence, or the threat thereof,” according to Manuilov.
The Russian “exercise” appears to be a semi-covert message from the top down, intended to get people into position.
“Abnormal emergency rescue teams” were also cited in the release, sparking concern from people in-the-know.
