Russian television has been airing state-sponsored infomercials encouraging civilians on how to prepare for an attack amid heightened tension between Moscow and the West.

In addition, state-controlled news operations have carried reports urging residents to locate the nearest bomb shelters and identifying which government agencies would be in command should war occur, The Sunday Express reports.

Moscow continues to face increasing criticism from the West for its involvement in the Syrian civil war, including condemnation for the bombings in rebel-held eastern Aleppo.

President Vladimir Putin sent warships to the English Channel to join other forces in support of the Syrian effort, according to news reports.

The move has put the British Royal Navy on high alert.

Putin also this week canceled a state visit to France, accusing President Francois Hollande of trying to humiliate him.

The Russian president last week transferred nuclear-capable Iskander ballistic missiles into one of its strategic Baltic regions.

Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz told the Express that Poland considered the move of "highest concern" and was monitoring the situation.
