Amid rising tensions , a state run Russian TV recently broadcast a report advising people on the best food to take into World War III bomb shelters.
The report on Rossiya-24news suggested supplies for survival – and packing iodine to protect the body from radiation, according to Daily mail.
Viewers were told to pack rice – ‘it can be stored for up to eight years, oatmeal for three to seven years’ – but to forego Russian favourite buckwheat which only lasts a year.
‘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,” TV anchor said.
‘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’ he said.
