Russian authorities are warning their citizens of an impending nuclear war as diplomatic ties with the US reached its lowest point since the cold war.
Reports in the Russian media in the last one month have been awash with questions asking people whether they are ready for nuclear war.
“If it should one day happen, every one of you should know where the nearest bomb shelter is. It’s best to find out now,” according to one particularly fevered report on the Russian state-owned channel, NTV.
Russia’s main current affairs show, hosted by a presenter known by critics as the country’s propagandist-in-chief, recently spent two hours warning that Russia would defend itself with nuclear arms.
“We’ve had it with American scolding over Syria,” the show’s host, Evgeny Kiselyov, told his audience. “Impudent behaviour,” from the U.S. he said, can take on “nuclear dimensions.”
