Comment by Embassy Press Secretary Nikolay Lakhonin

December 11, 2017

We have received news on the attempted terrorist attack in New York today with deep concern. According to our General Consulate on New York no Russian citizens were among the victims. We urge the Russian citizens to stay alerted and avoid crowds.
Methods used by international terrorists are universally similar. Russia knows them well. Our county was targeted by such attacks on multiple occasions. Only joint and coordinated actions including reestablishing counterterrorism efforts of the special services can provide reliable security for the citizens of our countries.
