Russia bomb threat: Airport emptied after sickening message triggers mass evacuation

500 people were evacuated from Khabarovsk Novy Airport after the threat.

Staff told them to wait inside buses away from the airport, partially to keep them dry.

Khabarovsk Novy Airport’s press services told Russian media agency TASS passengers can expect serious delays.

They said: “It is expected that seven flights will be delayed.”

It follows two shopping centres in Novosibirsk being evacuated over fears of explosive devices on Monday.

A press statement from Novosibirsk’s regional government said the situation was under control.

They said: “In accordance with the norms of the current legislation and algorithms for situational response, when necessary, people are being evacuated from buildings.”
