65 people remain in hospitals in Volgograd and Moscow, after the twin terror blasts in Volgograd in the last days of 2013.

47 people are hospitalized in Volgograd, and 18 others in Moscow, some in grave condition, but all of them stable, reports ITAR-TASS.

34 people were killed in the southern Russian city December 29 and 30, after bombs exploded at the train station and in a public trolleybus.

The attacks were presumably carried out by suicide bombers.

They shook Russia just weeks after the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Russia's law enforcement authorities have launched a major anti-terrorist operation to counter possible future attacks.
