By Bill Gertz THE WASHINGTON TIMES 01 April 1997 pg 1
"Russia is continuing a Cold War-era program to build deep underground bunkers, subways and command posts to help Moscow's leaders flee the capital and survive a nuclear attack, The Washington Times has learned..... "The underground construction appears larger than previously assessed," a CIA report labeled "top secret" reported two weeks ago. ...The outlays also raise new worries among some U.S. officials about whether U.S. aid to Russia is allowing Moscow to spend its money on building new strategic forces and facilities."
