Two separate explosions ripped through Volgograd’s train station on Sunday and a trolleybus on Monday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday gave instructions to the National Anti-Terrorism Committee to step up security measures across all of Russia and specifically in Volgograd Region.
Monday’s attack was the third in the southern city in the past two months, just weeks ahead the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in February to be hosted by Russia in the city of Sochi. The venue is close to Russia’s volatile north Caucasus region, bordering the troubled republics of Chechnya and Dagestan.
The two attacks left over a hundred injured, including 65 people hospitalized.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the two latest explosions.
