They say payback is a bitch. And as for Hillary, well, ahem.
More than 100,000 people were evacuated from dozens of locations in Moscow – including a luxury shopping centre near Red Square – after a wave of hoax bomb threats hit the city, Russian media reported on Thursday.
Telephone calls warning of imminent bombings also triggered the evacuation of railway stations, airports, universities, hospitals and hotels, plunging parts of the Russian capital into chaos, the Interfax news agency said. All of them proved to be false.
Bomb scares have also caused massive disruption in other towns and cities across Russia in recent days. The first calls were reported in Omsk, a city in Siberia, on Sunday, as Russians voted in regional elections. They have since caused panic in cities as far apart as Kaliningrad, Russia’s Baltic exclave, and Vladivostok, on the Pacific coast.
There have been over 1,500 cases of “telephone terrorism” in the southern city of Stavropol alone.
