Muscovite Sues Over Mouse

A Moscow resident has filed a lawsuit against a snack producer, seeking 200,000 rubles ($6,500) in damages after finding a dead mouse in a bag of roasted nuts in January, RIA-Novosti reported Tuesday.

Pyotr Khokhlov said the Moscow-based producer, Moskovskaya Orekhovaya Kompania, refused to compensate him even after independent consumer rights experts confirmed that the dead rodent was placed into the bag during factory packaging. The company has not commented on the claim. No date has been set for the hearing.


… 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.
