The Russian government has since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine designated a “yellow” level terrorist threat, which corresponds to confirmed information about a planned terrorist act, in a number of regions that border or are nearby Ukraine.
Russian officials have repeatedly described artillery and airstrikes against Russian territory as “terrorism” by Ukraine. Kyiv has traditionally neither confirmed nor denied its role in strikes on Russian territory.
