You are looking at Russia’s nuclear missile site which contains the nation’s ballistic missiles. Needless to say, if you feel an earthquake in the area you know what’s happening.
Reports have indicated that ballistic missiles are housed there which are capable of being launched automatically. This town is technically “closed” which sounds extremely scary.
Located in the southern Ural Mountains, it has been reported that there are automatically triggered sensors that can detect a nuclear strike. As a closed town, Mezhgorye is administratively subordinated to the Russian federal government.
Fearing a decapitating strike, the Soviets sent tens of thousands of workers to these remote sites, where U.S. spy satellites spotted them still toiling away in the late 1990s.
During the time of Boris Yeltsin’s pro-Western government after the fall of the Soviet Union. Many believe that the construction of the site began in the 1970s and was used as a repository for Russian treasures, food storage area, and a nuclear bunker for military officials.
The whole story begins from the cold-war period. However, the special restricted area status is still unchanged. Because of that, Mezhgorye is one of the most mystical towns even today.
