Blast, Shooting in Grozny

A suspected rebel lightly injured several riot police officers in the Chechen capital of Grozny when he threw a grenade at them to avoid detention, the Chechen Interior Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov denied earlier reports about two more explosions in Grozny overnight, the ministry said.

In another incident in Grozny on Wednesday, unidentified attackers fired at a motorcade of military cars, killing one officer and injuring another six, the Investigative Committee said in a statement.

… 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.
