Switzerland’s network of nuclear bunkers could house up to 50,000 refugees in an emergency situation, the country’s defence minister said on Thursday.


According to the Swiss edition of The Local, the minister stressed that the bunkers are in full readiness, and may become temporary accommodations for refugees.


Thus, Maurer didn’t rule out that in the «next few days or hours» a large number of refugees can aspire to Switzerland.


«We could offer tens of thousands a roof over their head and a warm meal», — quoted the Swiss media.
