Reuters: Russian calls for Cold War civil defence training to be revived

Russia's authorities should revive the old Cold War practise of training civilians on how to respond in the event of a large-scale nuclear attack, a senior government official said on Friday.

Speaking after a meeting of Russia's Security Council chaired by President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Rogozin, the deputy prime minister in charge the defence industry, said the United States was upsetting the nuclear balance by developing new weapons systems.

Russia had no choice but to react to the aggressive capabilities of the United States, he said.

WNU Editor: This brings back old memories of civil defense training and lectures on how to survive a nuclear war.
