Sharapovo is one of two leadership relocation sites near Moscow [the other is closer to the city, at Chekhov]. Another is located at Chaadayevka, some 650 kilometers southeast of Moscow near Penza. The support infrastructure for these facilities is substantial. A highly redundant communications system, consisting of both on-site and remote elements, supports these complexes and permits the leadership to send orders and receive reports through the crisis management structure. These installations also have highly effective life support systems capable of protecting their occupants against chemical and biological attack. Such arrangements may enable independent operations to be carried out from these facilities for many months.
