Where to run from the war: all about choosing a city to move to

War is not an experience that anyone needs and that everyone can endure without consequences. Therefore, it is quite normal if, in the event of the outbreak of hostilities, you decide to send your family or go away together. We will not consider emigration and talk about options when you are limited to the territory of your country.

Perhaps someone is planning to buy a house or an apartment in a small town right now and is preparing to build a family nest. The situation is especially relevant for specialists who are not tied to a specific place of work. Be sure to read this material.

I have repeatedly communicated with people who lost their homes during the fighting. And expensive luxury houses, and ordinary apartments that were bought with money that had been accumulating all their lives. Sometimes a month before the first attacks, so the family literally slept on the floor. But in his own, not a rented apartment. However, only a month. Then a checkpoint or military equipment was placed nearby, and the new long-awaited housing turned into ruins.

This is a monstrous stress that can break anyone — to lose everything in adulthood, to understand that with a probability of 99% there will never be a corner under any circumstances. And that this mistake was made yesterday.

In the advice below, I proceed from the fact that in the event of war, the front line can pass in any place and direction. Choosing a suitable city, you should remember that the war can reach there, so it is important to choose the right place to live in the city itself.

Ideally, you should choose 5-10 cities in different parts of the country, so that in case of a bad development of events (I sincerely wish that none of these and my other recommendations would be useful to any of the readers), you could, without wasting time on making a decision, quickly move your family and things to the right city. Often, 2-4 weeks after the start of the fighting, it becomes impossible to transport large cargoes without bribes.

Correlate your choice of housing with the basic rules below.

Distrust of rumors on the Internet

Only very high ranks in uniform know how, when and where the front line will move. The rest, especially bloggers with an active life, political and ideological position, with insiders and "verified sources", are just mouthpieces. Often their forecasts are far from reality, erroneous, and they cannot be taken into account categorically.

Trust your eyes, ears and information from people in specific places.

City-forming enterprise

The presence of even a small factory is a guarantee that the city will not die with the outbreak of war. Business in contact with the state is an incredibly tenacious entity, capable of repairing broken power lines, water mains, roofs of houses and even paying taxes day after day.

As long as there is a working enterprise inside the city, everything else will work, including schools, kindergartens, shops and providers. The stronger and bigger the enterprise, the better.

Avoid cities with enterprises producing military equipment, weapons and ammunition. They can become the main and first targets.

Major railway station, motorway interchange

In fact, this is a bad, but a replacement for the enterprise. The presence of a large plant does not necessarily mean the presence of a living enterprise, but there is a potential for defrosting old, already closed factories in the city.

Life is due to the movement of trains and cars. In the future (if the usual ties between the regions begin to break down) — the creation of logistics centers for the transportation of goods. All these are jobs, money, and therefore life. Naturally, such hub cities are in the zone of special attention, as they are used for the movement of equipment and military, but that is why the front line will be moved away from them even in case of an aggravation.

Proximity to main water, gas and electrical lines

The further the city is from the main communications, the higher the probability that in case of accidents and damage after shelling, no one will restore anything for months.

Believe me, living without water, electricity, gas and communication is good only for downshifters in the summer.

In reality, when there is nothing on the ninth floor to flush the toilet, wash the dishes and wash, it causes a lot of inconvenience. Cooking food with the taste of smoke will take many times more time and will not even compare with the impressions of a peaceful camp porridge on a campfire.

I don't even want to talk about subzero temperatures. Living without heat is one of the most terrible trials for a person.

Usually social services have lists of elderly, non-walking and seriously ill people on their hands. But a person can get sick, break a leg or lose strength on the eve of heavy shelling, after which strings of people with bags, cars and buses will pull out of the city. Like in the old war movies. The streets will be littered with broken glass, bricks, shards and branches. 3-4 people can stay on a typical high-rise building. If you're lucky, all or almost all of the lists will be taken out. The rest will be left to die.

Absence of military bases and units

The authors of post-apocalyptic works are very fond of making such places the focus of power and order in a world of chaos and zombies. In our case, this is a point of permanent instability or a reason to be in the epicenter of hostilities. Even a small radar base is a serious disadvantage and a reason to choose an alternative option.

Developed infrastructure

If there is no hospital, supermarket, dead roads in the city and in general everything is bad — with the outbreak of war it will get even worse.

It is not necessary to choose completely abandoned and dead towns, where only old people and one grocery store remained, and from entertainment — moonshine and fishing.

These are the potential dead. If something happens, they will wait for real help for years.

Carefully study how comfortable the city is already for living. A school, a kindergarten, a supermarket chain or good local outlets, pharmacies, a hospital with doctors and equipment, a dental office, a maternity hospital, bank branches, a full—fledged police station, an ambulance, a fire station and the availability of their own utilities - all this is just a basic minimum.

With the beginning of the war, nothing new is being built globally, only repaired. And if there is no hospital in the city, you will have to go to the next one, which is extremely burdensome in the presence of small children. There is no pharmacy or bank — the same thing: get in a car, bus or bike, and go ahead.

River or reservoir

Almost certainly you, like everyone else, will have difficulties with money. They will not be enough for long trips, nor for the rest itself. Therefore, it is extremely useful for health and nerves to have a good pond nearby to swim or fish in the summer. Now, when you are not limited in money and movement, it does not seem particularly important, but in conditions of austerity of money, the possibility of a normal vacation near home adds a fat plus to the city.

Relatives or friends

Yes, war makes people to a certain extent more honest, open and ready to help. But not all of them. Having relatives or good friends who can help you in difficult situations, get you a job or simply invite you to dinner is very expensive in a foreign city.

General points

  1. Do not choose cities near the border. All of them are at risk.
  2. The presence of the private sector is a serious plus. Having autonomous heating (coal-fired boilers, firewood or a banal stove), you are guaranteed to overwinter even in the absence of electricity and gas. And in general, the closer to the ground, the easier it is to survive.
  3. When choosing a house or apartment, avoid the outskirts. No matter how picturesque they may be, in the event of hostilities, they will suffer first and most.
  4. The presence of a well or well in the yard is a huge plus.
  5. Find out about typical problems: water supply by the hour, power outages, power surges, floods, mudslides and so on. With the outbreak of war, they will worsen.
  6. Take into account the presence of nearby burials of chemical or radioactive waste and other objects that, without proper supervision, can lead to serious problems.
  7. Do not take houses and apartments at road junctions. Roadblocks are usually set up in such places, after which all the housing around turns into ruins.
  8. Do not take houses and apartments with unconnected communications and serious defects. You don't know when it's going to start. And if it breaks out somewhere nearby, all your agreements, sealed with signatures, seals and the most firm assurances, will be ignored.
  9. Poor immediate neighborhood — kindergartens, schools, vocational schools, warehouses. Military personnel and equipment are often stationed in such places. This means that all the houses around are guaranteed to come under fire.
  10. Do not buy a house on a sparsely populated street. After the outbreak of hostilities, people will begin to leave en masse and so. And empty houses and apartments will be ruthlessly and systematically robbed.

War is very scary. It is useless to talk about it, it is useless to show it. To understand what it is, you can only experience. It is no less scary to become a refugee. Very often, the loss of housing or moving to nowhere breaks people more and faster than shelling. Destroys families, makes enemies of relatives and kills people's interest in life. Try to listen to yourself and make the right decision when it is necessary.
