Flags fly at half mast over the Kremlin on Wednesday -- as Russia holds a day of mourning to honour those who died in Monday's bomb attack at Domodedovo airport.
A suicide bomber killed at least 35 people at Moscow's main airport -- in an attack that bore the hallmarks of militants fighting for an Islamist state in the north Caucasus region.
President Dmitry Medvedev vowed to track down and punish those behind the bombing -- but Moscow residents say they are still worried about the possibility of further attacks.
(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) MOSCOW RESIDENT, ALEXEI, SAYING:
"You know, it's become a lot more difficult -- when I'm travelling by metro I am looking around me the whole time, now it's the same at the airport. I'm thinking now how do I travel? On the train or by plane? It makes everything tense."
The latest attack also raises concerns about Moscow's ability to manage the world's largest country.
And with discontent growing in the mainly Muslim republics of the North Caucasus on Russia's southern flank -- the Kremlin's woes are only mounting.
