The Supreme Secret!

The Ramenki District is located in the South-Western part of the Russian Capital of Moscow. There is a City, which was built under the ground in this area. However, the Russians do not acknowledge its existence! Although its existence is not officially acknowledged by Russia, this mysterious city is said to be the largest bunker in Moscow. Its depth is 180-200mt from the surface!

According to sources close to the KGB (the main security agency for the erstwhile Soviet Union from 1954 to 1991), all the civic amenities, which people need to live under the ground, are there! It is believed that around 15,000 people could live at the bunker!

The information about this bunker was first reported in 1992, after the end of the Cold War between the US and the former Soviet Union due to the Power Struggle. The issue came to the fore, in a rare first, in a report filed by a journalist, named ‘KGB Officer‘! He reported that the bunker would be safe in case of a nuclear attack on Moscow. The Soviet authorities had this bunker built in order to safeguard people during a possible nuclear war against the US…

It is believed that the construction works of this bunker started in 1960, and was completed in 1970, under the supervision of the KGB. However, the KGB had maintained its secrecy about the bunker. The US forces, too, confirmed the existence of a bunker in the Russian capital in 1991, and also published its map. According to the US Forces, the bunker was called ‘Metro-2’.

Earlier in 1985, Oleg Antonovich Gordievsky – a former Colonel of the KGB and KGB resident-designate and Bureau Chief in London and also a Secret Agent of the British Secret Intelligence Service from 1974 to 1985 – revealed the existence of the bunker in an interview with Argumenty i Fakty. He disclosed the ‘supreme secret’ of the KGB, saying: “You still do not know the main KGB secret yet: a huge underground city, a whole communications network of such facilities. But they will not show you; they will never, of course.” However, Gordievsky did not disclose the exact location of the bunker.

The issue of the bunker had also been mentioned in a Report Card of the Soviet Ministry of Defence. The Defence Ministry stated that deep tunnels had been built in Moscow and suburbs for security purposes in emergency situation. These tunnels were also called ‘Ramenki-43‘. The length of the purported secret underground metro system or bunker lies 50-200mt deep. It is said to connect the Kremlin with the Federal Security Service (FSB) Headquarters, the airport at Vnukovo-2, and an underground town at Ramenki, in addition to other locations of national importance.
