Why Is Russia Building Nuclear Shelters ?

Russia seems to be preparing for something important. In an article published in July 2010 on the site RT, there was talk about 5000 new nuclear shelters that will be built in Moscow by the end of 2012. Russian authorities believe that this shelters are urgently needed because existing shelters can accommodate only half of Moscow's population, and in addition, are outdated. Moscow officials want the entire population of the Russian capital to be able to reach these shelters in minutes. But why do they urgently need 5000 nuclear shelters? What is the real reason ?
It seems that not only Russia is building that shelters. A few years ago the Bureau Of Shanghai Civil Defense announced completion of the construction of a giant underground shelter with an area of 90000 square meters which could house up to 200000 people.
