9 Dead in Saratov Crash

At least nine people died in Tatarstan on Friday after a bus carrying oil company workers returning home after a month-long shift swerved into the wrong lane and rammed into a KamAZ truck carrying sunflower seeds, Interfax said.

The bus driver, Anas Garipov, 47, was killed along with eight workers of the Kalmneft company. At least 25 people were hospitalized in Saratov and Kazan, seven in serious condition, an Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman said.


… 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.
