HP’s Offices Searched

Hewlett-Packard’s Moscow offices were searched by law enforcement officials Wednesday as part of an investigation into the U.S. computer maker, Olga Ekkert, a spokeswoman for the company, said Wednesday.

HP is cooperating with the investigation, Ekkert said, declining to provide details.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.
