Embassy Crisis Centers

Russia plans to set up "crisis headquarters" at its embassies to avert potential threats overseas to the country's interests, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said Tuesday.

The centers will be created because of the increased number of terrorist and other threats targeting Russian facilities and citizens overseas, RIA-Novosti reported. A center will also be established at the Foreign Ministry in Moscow.
