Police Heighten Security in Metro After Bomb Threats

Police have increased their ranks in the Moscow metro on Wednesday after receiving two bomb threats since Tuesday, RIA-Novosti reported.

The first threat came from a drunk man who on Tuesday told a police officer at metro station Medvedkovo that there would be an explosion in the metro Wednesday, police said. The man did not say at what station the attack would take place. Police charged him with public drunkenness and took him to a hospital.

A second warning of a metro bomb attack came from an anonymous caller.

Police have dispatched canine bomb-sniffing units to central and transfer metro stations and assigned military officers to patrol stations.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
