Bunker 2 (video)

The second of two civil defence bunkers we managed to find our way into. Its amazing what is down here and all pretty easy to see in this video as the electricity was still on in this bunker so we switched the lights on.

Bunker 1 (video)

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, officially form part of the countries civil defence planning, ironically they are now more likely to be used to protect Ukraine from Russia than from the West. Can you believe what has been left inside when they were mothballed?

On the night of 5 June 1944, a force of 181 men landed silent wooden gliders within feet of ‘Pegasus Bridge’ in Normandy, France. This marked the beginning of ‘D Day’ and the allied invasion of occupied Europe.
