Such calls have been received in 170 Russian cities, claiming bombs were planted in thousands of buildings. They have hit the country a month ago.

"Since September 11, the calls about 'bombs' have been received at 2.46 thousand buildings in 170 cities of the country. A total of 1,460,000 people have been evacuated," RIA Novosti cited the source as saying.
