MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) on Wednesday dismissed rumors of more terrorist attacks allegedly being prepared in several Russian cities.
Unconfirmed reports that cited unnamed security sources were published by certain media and social networking sites in Russia in the wake of Monday’s blast in St. Petersburg, which left 14 people dead and dozens injured.
"The NAC information center points out that true and precise information on the issue on behalf of security agencies can be obtained only from official reports by the Public Relations Center of the FSB and the Information Center of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee," the committee said in a statement.
The committee added that the dissemination of false or unconfirmed information from anonymous sources about alleged preparations of a terrorist attack is a punishable offense in Russia.
