Search in Khimki Beating

The administration building of the Moscow region town of Khimki was searched as part of the probe into last month’s beating of environmental activist Konstantin Fetisov, who remains in a coma, the Investigative Committee said Monday, without elaborating.

Earlier reports said suspects, allegedly members of criminal gangs warring for control of Khimki, were detained, but the committee denied the rumors, Rusnovosti.ru reported.

Media linked the attack on Fetisov to his participation in the campaign in defense of the Khimki forest, part of which is slated to be cut to make way for an $8 billion highway.

… 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.
