Arrests Over Deadly Fire

Three people were detained in Perm last weekend over a fire that killed at least 16 people, trapping them in a warehouse with locked doors and no fire alarm or fire extinguisher system, Interfax said.

The fire took place Thursday, but on Monday rescuers still had not managed to clean up all the debris.

Most victims were workers who were packaging household chemicals stored in the warehouse. The director of the firm that owned the warehouse and one of his deputies were arrested Saturday, and another deputy was detained Sunday, the report 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.
