Builders in Moscow recently excavated a network of secret Soviet era tunnels when they tore down the enormous Rossiya Hotel near Cherkizovsky Market next to the Kremlin in eastern Moscow.

The network of tunnels is believed to presumably lead to Stalin's bunker. It was a top-secret military asset constructed especially for the late leader of the old Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin.

Such bunkers were previously military secrets, where armored units were standing by in case something happened. Bunkers were built in Moscow in the 1930s to secure the defense of the country.

Aleksandr Kuzmin, the chief architect for Moscow's municipal construction announced on August 31 that the tunnels have a total length of 15 kilometers and are wide enough to allow armored vehicles such as tanks to pass through.

Recently, workers have evacuated a hundred-meter long tunnel going towards the city centre, said Aleksandr Kuzmin.
