Book on Graft Returned

Moscow region police have returned the print run of a book on graft in the region to the publisher, Eksmo, RIA-Novosti reported Thursday.

The book, "Corporation 'Moscow Region:' How Russia's Richest Region Was Bankrupted," penned by Forbes Russia reporter Anna Sokolova, was arrested earlier this month after deputy governor Igor Parkhomenko filed a libel complaint with local police, which later refused to open a case, 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.
