Russian National Defense Control Center almost 100% protected from cyber attacks

Meanwhile, lights go out briefly at the White House and at the State Department when something as simple as a transformer is blown a few streets away.

Matter of fact, one should question why the White House is even connected to the same civilian grid. What’s more, one should question whether or not this is a coverup for something more serious such as a cyber attack on Washington from Russia or China. The White House or State Departments should never have lights go dim due to ‘transformer blowouts’.

America is going into war unprepared.

Russia is launching a new national defense facility, which is meant to monitor threats to national security in peacetime, but would take control of the entire country in case of war.

The new top-security, fortified facility in Moscow includes several large war rooms, a brand new supercomputer in the heart of a state-of-the-art data processing center, underground facilities, secret transport routes for emergency evacuation and a helicopter pad, which was deployed for the first time on Nov. 24 on the Moscow River. The Defense Ministry won’t disclose the price tag for the site, but it is estimated at the equivalent of several billion dollars.

The new National Defense Control Center (NDCC) is a major upgrade on what was previously called the Central Command of the General Staff, a unit tasked with round-the-clock monitoring of military threats against Russia, particularly ballistic missile launches, and deployment of strategic nuclear weapons. It was roughly a counterpart to the US National Military Command Center, the Pentagon’s principal command and control site. Continue reading
