Amid rising tension over Syria crisis, a state-run Russian TV channel has advised people to pack essentials in preparation for World War Three.
The Kremlin-owned channel suggested the ideal supplies for survival and told people to pack iodine to protect the body from radiation, reported Mirror.co.uk.
However, in the same report they also claimed there were too many Western scare stories about a catastrophic global conflict.
The channel called Rossiya-24 gave the suggestions in the middle of all the tension that has been revolving around Syria after a top military analyst issued warnings that the world already has the Cuban Missile Crisis Mark Two, reported IB Times.
Journalist and military analyst Alexander Golts told Rain TV in Moscow: “A year ago when I said we had entered a new Cold War, nobody agreed with me. Now everyone agrees but it has become clear that events in this second Cold War develop a lot quicker. It’s only just started and, here you go, we already have Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0.”
But if a World War III actually does arise, the list of suggestions mostly swears by items that last up to years. “The food supply for doomsday includes many items but the main idea behind packing an emergency stock is less sweets, more water.”
Viewers were mainly asked to pack rice as “it can be stored for up to eight years, oatmeal for three to seven years.”( Mirror In )
