Two weeks ago, the USA indicated to Russia Crocus as the target of a terrorist attack

Warning the Russian special services in early March about the threat of a terrorist attack in Russia, the USA pointed to the concert hall “Crocus City Hall” as a potential target of the attack. This is reported by The Washington Post with reference to two unnamed American officials familiar with the situation.

“The high degree of specificity of the warning underlines Washington’s confidence that the Islamic State is preparing an attack that threatens a large number of civilians, and directly contradicts Moscow’s claims that the US warnings were too general to help prevent a terrorist attack,” the publication said.

Washington regularly shares information about possible terrorist attacks with foreign states, however, “giving the enemy information about specific targets is an unusual step,” experts polled by the publication note. : Because, according to them, this could lead to the disclosure of how the US obtained the information, and would put intelligence activities or human sources at risk. However, information about the preparation of a terrorist attack in the concert hall also meant a potential threat to Americans in Russia, the article explains.
