In the same report, the Kremlin-owned channel also claimed there were too many Western scare stories about a catastrophic global conflict.
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.
The report on Rossiya-24 came amid deep tension over Syria and as a top military analyst warned that the world already has the Cuban Missile Crisis Mark Two.
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.”
The bomb shell advice included stated: “The food supply for doomsday includes many items but the main idea behind packing an emergency stock is less sweets, more water. “
Viewers were told to pack rice – “it can be stored for up to eight years, oatmeal for three to seven years”.
The Russian favourite of buckwheat only lasts one year, they were informed.
“Obviously, you can survive on tinned meat for quite a while – up to five years, while canned fish keeps for not more than two years.
“Of course it is hard to do without milk, at least powdered, sugar and salt.
“Russian tradition suggests we should buy pasta in times of cataclysms.
“But professional survivors do not recommend taking this product into bomb shelters.”
TV presenter Alexey Kazakov said: “Life in the underground world will be particularly hard for the sweet toothed.
“Chocolates, sweets, condensed milk, all this will have to be left behind.
“Yes, glucose is a great source of energy but sweets cause thirst, and water will become the most precious source for residents of bomb shelters.”
“Because you can survive for two to three weeks without food, but it gets really hard without water after three days only.
‘Water is needed to digest food too. And water is the first thing one should think of.’
