Antiterrorism Committee: info about upcoming terrorist attacks in cities of Russia is unreliable
The National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) also recalls the responsibility for disseminating deliberately false or unconfirmed information.
The reports on alleged terrorist attacks in the Russian cities appearing in a number of mass media and social networks are unreliable, the National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) warns.
"The information that appeared in a number of media and social networks with references to unnamed sources in security agencies about terrorist acts allegedly being prepared in a number of Russian cities is unreliable," the NAC says in a statement to RBC.
The NAC stresses that "on this issue, the only reliable and accurate reports on behalf of security agencies are official reports of the Public Relations Center of the Russian Federal Security Service and the Information Center of the National Antiterrorism Committee."
The message is also reminded of the responsibility for distributing deliberately false or unconfirmed information from anonymous sources about allegedly preparing terrorist acts.
Officer of the FSB in Moscow and the region Pyotr Koryugin participated in the extortion of 2 million rubles ($34.800) from an Azerbaijani citizen, and he warned a drug dealer about a forthcoming search for 300.000 rubles ($5200).
