Is Russia upgrading nuclear bunker? Nine News, 

This satellite photo [on original] could show Russia is upgrading a key nuclear weapons storage site, a new report has revealed.

The report by the Federation of American Scientists highlights how Russia may has modernised a nuclear weapons storage bunker in Kaliningrad.

The site, located between Poland and the Baltics, has been renovated in the past two years and covered up again “presumably to return to operational status”, the report reads.

Director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists Hans M Kristensen writes in his blog how the area was last upgraded between 2002 and 2010.

His report said the upgrade raises questions about what Russia intends to use it for. He questions whether it will be used to store nuclear warheads or if it’s simply an upgrade of an aging facility for an existing capability.

“The features of the site suggest it could potentially serve Russian Air Force or Navy dual-capable forces. But it could also be a joint site, potentially servicing nuclear warheads for both Air Force, Navy, Army, air-defense, and coastal defense forces in the region,” he wrote.

“It is to my knowledge the only nuclear weapons storage site in the Kaliningrad region,” he continued……..https://www.9news.com.au/world/2018/06/19/15/36/satellite-photos-show-renovation-at-russian-nuclear-bunker
