Reporters Nabbed in Katyn

WARSAW — Poland’s Foreign Ministry said Russia has arrested three Polish journalists at the site of a plane crash in Smolensk’s Katyn forest where President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others died in April.

Ministry spokesman Marcin Bosak said the three were detained Friday for entering twice onto restricted military grounds, and are being questioned.

An official at the Polish Embassy in Moscow, Pawel Koc, called the matter “serious.” The all-news station TVN24 said one of its reporters was among those arrested, and that the group had been observing and filming the wreckage.

… 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.
