Beketov at Rally

Journalist Mikhail Beketov, who was brutally beaten in 2008, joined about 150 protesters at a rally Sunday on Pushkin Square to demand full investigations into attacks on reporters and activists, RIA-Novosti reported.

Kommersant reporter Oleg Kashin and environmental activist Konstantin Fetisov were both beaten earlier this month. They criticized the partial destruction of Moscow region’s Khimki forest, a project also opposed by Beketov, editor of a Khimki newspaper who lost a leg and sustained brain damage in an unsolved 2008 attack.

… 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.
