MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry is urging those Russian holiday-makers who are going to Vienna for New Year Holidays to stay on guard in view of the risk of terrorist attacks in the Austrian capital. The warning was published on the Foreign Ministry’s official page in Facebook.
"According to Austrian mass media the local law enforcement agencies have received information there is a potential risk of terrorist attacks in Austria on the eve of and during New Year celebrations at the sites of crowded events. The police do not rule out the possibility outdoor festivities late December 31 and in the small hours of January 1 may be canceled. Dear friends, we are asking you to be cautious and vigilant," the post says.
The Austrian police on Saturday issued a statement saying many EU countries had reportedly received a warning from an anonymous intelligence service (its nationality was not identified) there was a risk of terrorist attacks in European capitals in the last days of the outgoing year.
"The names of several potential terrorists were mentioned. We checked them, but the investigation based on the results of these checks has not yielded concrete results," the Austrian police said.
On Sunday the authorities in Vienna tightened security in the city.
