Bomb Threats Target 25 Moscow Buildings, Force Evacuations Of Parliament, Stock Exchange

In an incident that recalls the "almost simultaneous" bomb threats across Russia back in September that resulted in the evacuation of 45,000 people, briefly disrupting life in Russia's largest city, a bomb threat targeting 25 buildings in Moscow prompted mandatory evacuations of Russia's upper house of Parliament and the city's stock exchange, according to TASS.



The threats also targeted hospitals in the city, a source within the city's security services told TASS.

"We received an anonymous call about an explosive device planted in the building. In line with the security requirements, the staff members were evacuated and checks at the building are underway," the statement said.

Meanwhile, the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, received two bomb threats over the past four hours, the source said.

Moscow's famed Bolshoi Theater has also been targeted...



As we pointed out at the time, a wave of phone calls has swept across Russian cities and towns since September. The anonymous bomb threats targeted more than 4,000 facilities in 215 Russian cities, affecting more than 2.6 million people were evacuated. Emergency services combed through secondary and higher schools, shopping malls, airports, railway stations, hotels and governmental buildings.

As a reminder, Russian stocks just broke to new record highs, despite increasing US sanctions and the infamous "sell signal" from The White House.

While more details about the bombing have yet to be released, It's worth noting that Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Moscow on Monday to meet with Vladimir Putin, according to Reuters...

Looks like another method of economic warfare. I doubt domestic terrorists could do this without professional advisors (hint, three letter agency which starts with C and ends with A).

Yes, Russia would have citizens who could pull such calls off themselves of course, but I find it highly unlikely that that group would do so. Such citizens would be busy supporting the state and economically active and rational actors.

Sounds like the work of a State entity, like an Uncle Scammer.

Poor old USSA is at its wit's end as the "treasury" filth flush cranks up. Now to get the Ukrop NAZIS to start murdering old ladies and children again in Novorossiya before the football season. But will it stop the USSAN collapse? Nah.....


5 Stages of Collapse

1: Financial collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost.

2: Commercial collapse. Faith that “the market shall provide” is lost.

3: Political collapse. Faith that “the government will take care of you” is lost.

4: Social collapse. Faith that “your people will take care of you” is lost.

5: Cultural collapse. Faith in “the goodness of humanity” is lost.

Navalny is a dead fellow. Putin has had enough of his sjw b.s . Navalny is the Russian cocksucker of Soros. Paid by his orgs, cuz he sure as fuck don't work a job. He's an anarchist mislabeled as a martyr for freedom.

Wrong. As far as Putin is concerned, Navalny doesn't even rise to the level of ankle-biter. Were he not barred from running for president in this election by his criminal convictions, he would finish with less than 5 percent of the votes cast. He is a paid provocateur, Yale-trained in color revolutions. He is currently useful to the State Department/Soros axis as a focal point for disaffected Russian youth.

At some point his usefulness will diminish, at which time the CIA, via a wetwork squad, will make a martyr of him, just like they did with Nemtsov. His death will be added to the list of those (falsely) attributed to Putin, like Litvinenko and Magnitsky.

He's an anarchist mislabeled as a martyr for freedom.

He's a twice-convicted embezzler playing the role of a fighter against corruption. Only the young and the naive buy any of his bullshit.

Putin would be smart and continue to reduce the personnel in their country at the US Embassy or Agencies / IMF - WB  / NGO's of all description especially those with English / Canadian / UK origin and or Soros sponsored / Think Tank Offices from the west / Consultants of all kinds


None of these organizations will advance the Russian interests so why tolerate?

Certainly you have noticed more than that.  If you exclude economic sanctions (act of war), strings of assassinations, the Ukraine, the Ukraine being loaded with weaponized disease labs, Russia being surrounded in defiance of treaties, China being surrounded, nearly going hot in Syria, attempts at western backed terror in Russia, threats, etc., etc.

I pity the people who may actually pull off a terrorist attack in Moscow one day. Putin will hunt them down with zero remorse and we'll never even hear about it.

Prank calls are pretty FUCKING juvenile - but hey - that’s the level of desperation from the US ! 

Next it will be “ Mr Putin - is your refrigerator RUNNING ??? “ 

“Well - you had better go and FUCKING catch it “ !!!
