The threat alone causes a lot of trouble.


Russia’s emergency services issued the following statement,

“Twenty sites are currently being evacuated, and more than 10,000 people have been escorted out, though the specific number is still being confirmed.

This appears to be a case of telephone terrorism, but we have to check the credibility of these messages”.
