A former secret nuclear missile base in Ukraine has been turned into a museum.

The base was once a hub for the Soviet Union's most advanced nuclear missiles and military technology.

Visitors can explore the only existing silo in Ukraine and a command post hidden 40m underground designed to withstand a nuclear strike.

Kirill Skorodelov reports.
