There is an on-going threat of terrorism in Russia. Terrorist attacks have occurred in recent years in Moscow and Volgograd. 

The threat is particularly high in the North Caucasian Federal District, where the security situation remains unstable.  On 4 December 2014, an attack in the Chechen capital Grozny reportedly killed at least 16 people and injured many others.  New Zealanders should be aware that any increase in violence in the North Caucasian Federal District is likely to increase the possibility of terrorism in other parts of Russia.
