As reported by The Telegraph, both the UK and US embassies in Russia sent out a warning that a terrorist attack could happen in Moscow within the next 24 hours.

The warning initially issued by the US embassy was reiterated by the UK’s embassy, advising American citizens to steer clear of large gatherings for the next 48 hours. It stressed that it is “monitoring reports that extremists have imminent plans to target large gatherings in Moscow, to include concerts”.

This comes a day after Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) noted that its agents had dodged a potential ISIS terrorist attack on a Moscow synagogue, with state-owned media claiming those plotting the attack were killed. However, it remains unclear whether these incidents are related.

The embassy further sent an advisory to its citizens to “monitor local media for updates” and “be aware of your surroundings”. This rings quite the ironic bell.

Back in December, Russia’s Foreign Ministry stressed that the United States and Britain were “encouraging the Kiev regime to engage in terrorist actions.”

Earlier that year, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) voiced that the US defense is recruiting fighters to plot and execute terrorist attacks on Russian soil and that of CIS countries (such as Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Uzbekistan).

“According to credible data received by the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia, the US military is actively recruiting militants from jihadist groups affiliated with the Daesh* and Al-Qaeda* to carry out terrorist attacks in Russia and the CIS countries. Particular attention is paid to attracting people from the Russian North Caucasus and Central Asia to cooperation,” the SVR statement read.
