At the break up of the Soviet Union Ukraine was left with many Missile Launch Silos such as this, most are now full of concrete, but this one remains as a museum. It is identical to the ones in Russia today which still contain missiles targeted at the west.

This video takes you on a trip along the path of the Clove underground river in Kiev. We entered about 3km outside of the city centre and exited in the main shopping area, much to the surprise of the late night shoppers.
