Chechens Find $1M Car

Chechen traffic police found a $1 million Rolls-Royce that was stolen in Moscow in 2007 and returned it to its rightful owner, the Chechen Interior Ministry said Thursday.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom sedan was placed on a federal stolen-car list, and its owner, a Moscow businessman whose name was withheld, hired private investigators to find it, the ministry said in a statement.

The car was found by Grozny police who stopped it for a routine document check, the ministry said, without elaborating whether the Rolls-Royce’s new owner faced any penalties.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
