Russia has started preparing its citizens for a 'nuclear war' with the West as tensions mount over Syria.
The country’s media and officials have claimed the West wants to launch an attack on Russia because of its intervention in Syria.
Officials announced on Friday underground shelters had been built which could provide shelter for Moscow’s 12 million people in the event of an attack.
A headline in Zvezda, a defence ministry TV channel last week read: “schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.”
Tensions remain high between Russia and America over the devastating civil war in Syria.
Russian bombing over the past week has devastated the Syrian city of Aleppo
The city has been under assault from forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad for a week, including Russia.
The Syrian military and its allies are attempting to capture rebel-held districts of eastern Aleppo which are still serving as home to more than 250,000 people.
Russia warned at the weekend that the US would face "terrible, tectonic" consequences if it took military action against the Syrian regime, The Times reported.
Russia has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world with 8,400 warheads compared to 7,500 in America.
Last week, an emotional Kate Silverton wept after introducing a BBC News report on a miracle baby being pulled live from the rubble of a house in Aleppo.
The newsreader was watching Abu Kifah's team finding the survivor in the destroyed building after Russian bombing in the Syrian city.
Footage showed a volunteer sifting through rubble and bursting into tears as he unearths a baby girl who's been buried in the latest bombing raids to hit the country.
