Support The Moscow Times!

400 Homebuyers Rally

About 400 property investors who claim to have been cheated out of thousands of dollars by developers who have still not yet built apartments for them rallied Saturday outside the White House in Moscow.

The brief, unauthorized protest near the office of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin ended amicably when police persuaded the demonstrators that their message had been heard.

News agencies later reported the arrest of the protest's organizer. The Constitution allows free assembly, but authorities say they require prior notice.


… 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.
