The foreign ministries of Latvia and Germany have joined the United States in warning citizens about possible terrorist threats in Russia. These three countries have issued recommendations to their citizens, highlighting the dangers and urging them to be cautious, reports The Moscow Times.

Latvia, Germany, and the United States have issued their own warnings in light of possible terrorist attacks in Russia. Latvia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted its warning on social media, urging citizens to avoid travel to the Russian Federation and mass gatherings in Moscow due to potential terrorist threats.

Germany is also changing guidelines for its own citizens and those with dual citizenship, highlighting the possibility of drone attacks and terrorist incidents on public transport, particularly rail transport across Russia.

These new warnings follow similar statements from the US Embassy in Russia, further underscoring the seriousness of the situation. The warnings of these countries specifically emphasize potential terrorist attacks on large gatherings of people, including concerts, with particular reference to events in the next 48 hours.

Women's Day has been a national holiday in Russia since 1966, during which there are many manifestations, concerts and other social and cultural events. While specific targets have not been identified, a general concern for the safety of citizens is evident.

The British Foreign Office is joining this initiative, providing similar advice to its citizens to avoid traveling to Russia. This coordination of warnings among European countries emphasizes the seriousness of the situation and reminds us of the importance of international cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

Considering the latest warnings, today Moscow will host a big concert on the occasion of International Women's Day, with the participation of famous pop stars and other events. Such events pose an additional challenge for security, given the possible risks of terrorist attacks.

There will be tens of thousands of people at such gatherings, and warnings from different countries tell us enough that the situation is serious. Officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia and the Kremlin have not yet commented on the statements of the diplomatic missions, but the reactions inside Russia are already visible.

Margarita Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of Russia Today, expresses skepticism about the warnings on her Telegram channel, stressing the need for concrete information to be forwarded to special services. There is also a reaction within the Russian media and society.

Military correspondent Semyon Pegov's WarGonzo Telegram channel reports confusion over the US warning, questioning who exactly it is aimed at - patriotic Russians or their adversaries, such as Ukrainian saboteurs.
