To say there is tension between Russia and the U.S. is an understatement. Apparently Russia isn't taking any chances — it has been preparing for nuclear war situations.
The Wall Street Journal even reported Tuesday, "At the Kremlin's Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Cold War is back." The paper said Russia conducted its largest round of disaster-preparation drills since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
According to the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry, over 40 million people participated in the four days of drills.
