As predicted here on Vault-Co over ten years ago.
They are trying to encircle Russia.
The stupidity of this strategy boggles the mind. It is a sluiced rail to the third World War. Does the Kwanstain really believe they can win that war? Or is it that they are so crazy they just don't care anymore and think that if the government and administration survives in their bunkers that is all that will matter? The other 300 million are extraneous now anyway. I expected that development ten years ago as well - the dismissal of the sheeple. Your services will no longer be required and it is not cost efficient to spend one penny keeping you alive a single day after your usefulness has expired. That $1.00 per capita that was formerly spent on civil defense for you is earmarked for far more important concerns.
It is for this reason that every minor, nameless peasant ... like myself ... requires a vault. Everything else is a luxury item in comparison.
