Kiev, Ukraine

A very rare opportunity to see inside a secret Soviet Civil Defence bunker situated beneath a key part of Kiev’s public transport network.

In the event of a nuclear attack by Britain or the USA the dated equipment in these bunkers (which is still present and working) would be used to track civilian casualties and damage on the surface. Today the bunkers, which are still owned by the government, are more likely to be used to protect Ukraine from Russia than from the West.

However, since the end of the cold war and the break up of the soviet union, many of the bunkers in Kiev have fallen into a very poor state of repair and with no money available they have not been properly maintained, or in some instances even properly secured.
