Russia has received bomb threats in many places in recent days. A large number of people have been evacuated.

China News Service, Moscow, February 16th Comprehensive Russian media news, Russia has received news of bomb threats in recent days, and a large number of people have been evacuated.

According to the insider quoted by the Interfax news agency, many large shopping malls in Moscow received an anonymous call on the 16th that there were bombs in the mall, causing hundreds of people to be evacuated.

On the same day, several shopping centers in St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk received bomb threats.

All subsequent threat messages were confirmed to be false messages.

According to the Russian news agency, on the 15th, 7 public places in Moscow received a bomb threatening phone, causing more than 5,000 people to be evacuated. These bomb threat calls were subsequently confirmed as false news.

Since September 2017, anonymous bombings have been received from all over Russia. Nearly 500 crowded sites have been threatened within three days of peak hours. By the end of October 2017, nearly 1.4 million people in Russia had been evacuated due to anonymous bomb threats, and the evacuated personnel accounted for about 1% of the total Russian population. Eventually all calls were confirmed to be false messages.

Since 2019, bomb threats have been received in various parts of Russia. According to the Russian Satellite News Agency, the Ministry of Emergency Situations quoted the news. In the day of February 5 alone, more than 200 personnel-intensive places in Moscow and the Central Federal District received bomb threats, causing more than 50,000 people to be evacuated.

After that, Russian Presidential Press Secretary Peskov said that Russia has encountered a new wave of bomb threats. This is a provocative act, and the Russian intelligence service is conducting a tracing.

According to the Russian media quoted experts, anonymous people use network IP phones to spread bomb threat messages. This IP phone can simulate incoming calls anywhere in the world, making it harder for law enforcement officers to track phone sources.

According to the Russian RBC News Network quoted insiders of the Russian Security Bureau, it was reported that some anonymous calls came from Ukraine, and some of the calls came from the Islamic State Organization.

But some Russian experts believe that these anonymous threat calls were made by teenagers and psychologically unbalanced people in Russia, and then evolved into flash action, which eventually turned into a terrorist threat.
