Moscow Police Inspect Nearly 50 Kindergartens Following Bomb Threats


    As many as 48 kindergartens in Moscow have been inspected after following bomb threats, a law enforcement source told TASS.

    “Police received a message about bombs in 48 kindergartens in downtown Moscow. The buildings have been inspected and no explosive devices have been found. No evacuations were ordered,” the source said, adding that a pre-investigation probe was underway.

    A wave of bomb threats began pouring into numerous Russian cities in November 2019. Anonymous individuals have been sending e-mails containing warnings about possible explosions in courts, schools, shopping centers, stores and universities.

    Since March, those threats also have been targeting airplanes. Not a single one of them has been confirmed. Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) reported blocking several foreign resources which were a source of thousands of false bomb threats.
