Vladimir Putin's army has destroyed a ghost garrison town in chilling footage that shows old buildings being razed to the ground.
The bizarre footage shows the Red Army destroying the dis-used military buildings in a huge operation.
Video footage released by the Russian Defence Ministry shows a series of explosions flattening the Cold War fortification.
More than 12 tons of explosives - including TNT and charges based on ductile substances - was used to blow up the military town.
A total of 85 barracks and storehouses were blitzed in the operation with another major operation in Chukotka region - close to Alaska - expected in May, reported The Siberian Times.
