Trial Delayed for Former Yevroset Owner

A London court has postponed until March 21 a hearing into the extradition of Yevgeny Chichvarkin, the former owner of the Yevroset mobile phone retailer wanted in Russia on kidnapping charges, Interfax reported Monday.

Chichvarkin, who has said the charges were fabricated by corrupt police officials looking to take control of his business, said the London court apparently was waiting for the outcome of the trial of eight Yevroset employees that is currently under way in Moscow.

Those suspects face the same charges that he does.

… 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.
