It transpires that Russia has its very own Area 51, only it’s a whole town. Mezhgorye is situated deep within the Ural Mountains and is said to be 400 square miles large but its still completely off the radar.

The Kremlin claims it is merely a mining site but that doesn’t explain why its surrounded by two battalions of armed guards who will use lethal force to prevent anyone going anywhere within the vicinity.

It is believed that Mezhgorye could be a nuclear missile site containing automatic missiles that can be activated remotely, complete with a large fully equipped emergency bunker to house Russia’s oligarchy if nuclear war became a reality.
