About 2,000 people have been evacuated from the Sklifosovsky emergency hospital in downtown Moscow after a bomb call, an emergency source told TASS on Monday.

"Police received an anonymous bomb threat call. K-9 experts and emergency workers have been dispatched there. About 2,000 people have been evacuated from the hospital," the source said.

Meanwhile, police received another anonymous call about a bomb planted at the Leningradsky Railway Terminal.

"Police officers have been dispatched to inspect the railway terminal," an emergency source told TASS.

On November 28, hoax calls were received about bombs planted at 15 Moscow shopping malls and the Kievsky Railway Terminal. According to a law enforcement source, all calls came from a telephone number registered in Ukraine.

A series of hoax bomb calls was recorded across Russia from September to December 2017, when nearly 4,000 facilities received bomb threats and over 2.6 mln people in various cities had to be evacuated.
