In the 3rd of April St Petersburg metro attack, in which 11 people died and over 47 were injured, the city is dealing with the aftermath. 

This Yandex map shows a variety of messages that smartphone users have left since the metro stations have closed. These are mostly messages by Yandex taxi drivers [much like the Uber service] offering free rides to various areas, as well as messages of thanks from users. 

“Together, we are strong!” – one reads, and “So glad that there’s so many people who care!”

“Respect to the drivers, keep it up!”

“Proud of my city!” also appears.
