A man discovered an abandoned Soviet-era bunker and was astonished to find it fully-stocked with creepy remnants of the past.

While wandering through land surrounding an old factory in Russia, the intrepid explorer - called Shiey on his YouTube channel - discovered a small concrete building and decided to take a look around.

Passing through a pitch-black corridor and through two, giant metal doors, he was stunned to find himself in a room with an electric light and ventilation.

The space was stocked with old newspaper cuttings, photographs, boots, tools, medicines and even gas masks.

Boxes full of equipment - appearing to date back to World War Two - lined the walls.

Shiey recorded the exploration and uploaded it to YouTube for others to view.

"While walking through the territory of a factory, located in the industrial area of the city, I noticed a weird concrete block with a metal gate on the side of it," he wrote.

"I opened it and a climb later I was in a dark, small tunnel, leading to an underground bomb shelter or safe house."

The startling discovery was made days after the Mirror Online revealed images showing the inside of a secret, underground city that was built to protect the British government in the event of a Cold War nuclear attack.

The huge bunker, which sits 100ft below ground in an quarry in Corsham, Wiltshire, had more than 60 miles of roads.

It could fit 4,000 people, including the Prime Minister and the royal family, in the event of a war.

The site, which belongs to the Ministry of Defence and is known as the Burlington Bunker, has been abandoned since the 1990s.
