Terror threat level in the UK lowered to severe

Based on the progress of the ongoing investigation, the British Government lowered the terrorism threat level from critical to severe. It means that a terrorist attack is no longer imminent. According to the British intelligence services, severe level – forth on a five-grade scale – implies that an attack is highly likely.

Taking into account that the tourist season has started, and travelers from Russia are planning their trips to Great Britain, we ask Russian citizens to exercise caution, avoid overcrowded areas and follow alerts during their stay in the United Kingdom.

Please, bear in mind that in case of emergency or crisis situations while in Great Britain, you can contact the Russian Embassy in London and the Consulate General in Edinburgh at emergency numbers for Russian nationals: +44 7768 566868 and +44 7805 932454 respectively.
