The United States government claimed to have had prior information indicating that a “terrorist attack” was being planned in Russia, which it shared with the Government of Vladimir Putin.

National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson explained on her Twitter account that this intelligence led the US to issue an alert to Americans in Russia earlier this month. “The US Government also shared this information with Russian authorities in accordance with our long-standing policy,” Watson added.

On March 7, the State Department issued an alert reporting that the U.S. Embassy in Russia was “monitoring reports” of an extremist group’s “imminent plans” to attack “large conglomerations in Moscow.” “US citizens are advised to avoid large groups of people in the next 48 hours,” the statement said.

At least 133 people died, according to Russian authorities, after armed assailants opened fire last night on hundreds of people in a concert hall in a shopping center on the outskirts of the Russian capital, an attack claimed by the Islamic State.
