President Putin want control of Crimea for the Secret Underground Submarine Base?
Will Putin reopen this military facility underground?
What experiments were conducted during the Cold War? Nuclear testing. Warheads, missiles, torpedoes. Military experiments.
I predict that President Putin will reopen this facility!
One of the most top secret places in USSR can be remembered for it’s extremely famous Nuclear Submarine Base. One these bases happened to be located in Balaklava, Ukraine. This city became the home of a huge underground submarine base which housed amazing docks and was functional up until 1996 when the last Russian submarine left Ukraine.
Object 825 GTS (or K-825) is an underground submarine base in Balaklava (near Sevastopol, Crimea), a secret military installation built in 1953-1961 during the Cold War, located in Balaklava bay.
The object is a construction that has anti-nuclear defense of the first category (protection against direct hit of 100 kt nuclear bomb), which includes combined underground water channel with a dry dock, repair shops, fuel storages, torpedo arsenal. The base is located in the mountain Tavros on both sides of which there are two exits.
Object 825 GTS was built for hiding, repairing and maintenance submarines of 613th and 633rd projects as well as for the storage of ammunition for these submarines. The channel of the facility (length 602 meters) could accommodate seven submarines of these projects. ‘The Safest House in America’: Bulletproof Home Defense. Watch the video below:
About 120 thousand tons of rocks were removed during construction. The removal was made at night on barges under conditions of complete secrecy. The complex also included the repair and technical base (object 820), designed for the storage and maintenance of nuclear weapons. The temperature inside the base is about 15 degrees.
Top 4 most interesting bunkers in Russia
A submarine base, the secret archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Stalin’s personal air raid shelters… We take a look at Russia’s most secret bunkers that even locals had no clue about.
1. Stalin’s bunker in Samara
Declassified only in 1990, this bunker began being built in the fall of 1941 during the Great Patriotic War. The secret facility, located under the modern-day Academy of Culture and Arts (previously housing the Regional Committee of the CPSU), was built primarily to evacuate Stalin in case of emergency, or, as stated in the corresponding State Defense Committee resolution, “according to the situation.”

The bunker was constructed by 2,900 workers and around 800 engineers, each of whom signed a non-disclosure agreement that lasted to the grave; not even locals knew what was being built at night behind the fence. The builders worked in two shifts, many sleeping in the underground rooms of the bunker itself. It is not known when it was finally completed—some say it became operational in 1941, others as late as January 1943.
It is also unknown whether Stalin himself actually went there. In any case, he would have been impressed by its scale. The bunker is 37m deep (the height of a 12-storey building), and the committee room alone can comfortably accommodate up to 115 people.
Today there are guided tours of the facility, including the shaft and Stalin’s private office.
2.Bunker 703 of the Soviet Foreign Ministry in Moscow
On the surface, this top-secret facility, declassified only in 2018, looks like an inconspicuous gray building in the backstreets of Moscow, flanked by a kindergarten and a church. In the late 1940s, the Circle line of the Moscow Metro was built over the site of the future bunker. When the line was commissioned, various passageways and technical tunnels remained, and these were used as the basis for the bunker, which was completed by 1961.
For decades, the facility served as a secret archive for the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where all kinds of documents were stored on endless shelves. The emergency exit led straight into the subway.
In 2005, it started to leak due to lack of maintenance. The documents were removed, and plans were made to reconstruct the building, but the now Russian Foreign Ministry realized that it no longer needed the space. In 2018, the facility was handed over to a war veteran organization, which converted it into the country’s first fortification museum, whose main exhibits are models of protective structures and declassified documents detailing the creation of the first Soviet bunkers.
3. Bunker 42
Construction of a command post for the Air Force General Staff in the event of a nuclear strike began in Moscow’s Tagansky District in 1947 on Stalin’s orders. The facility was completed only in 1956, when Stalin was already dead. All the same, it was a momentous project, consisting of a vertical shaft 18 storeys deep and spacious premises covering 7,000 sq. m.
The bunker was used for its intended purpose until 1986—from here the military commanded bombers with nuclear weapons on board. In 2006, a museum and restaurant were opened on the site. Now the once top-secret facility invites children and adults to view a simulated nuclear explosion and nuclear missile launch, and play themed quests.
