According to Philippine Ambassador to Russia Carlos Sorreta, OFWs should abide by the warnings and notices released by the Russian Federation.

Filipino workers are advised to avoid going to shopping malls and courts as the bomb threat scares have been targeting malls, courts, and train stations all over Moscow.

Although the scares were proven to be hoaxes, the embassy warned the threats should not be underestimated and instructed OFWs to obey when ordered to evacuate the area to ensure their safety.

Over 10,000 people in Moscow have evacuated due to bomb threat scares that began last November.

On Monday, Russian media reported that all of the Moscow metro stations had been checked, as well as over 100 schools and 20 shopping centers.
