Moscow Metro Buys Land

An additional 1.5 billion rubles ($53.6 million) has been allotted to the budget of the Moscow metro for the purchase of 48 lots in the city this year, RIA-Novosti reported.

The land will be used to accommodate the system's expansion. That sum is part of a total 2.7 billion ruble supplement to its budget that the Moscow City Duma approved last week, said Vera Chistova, head of the city finance department. The remainder of the money will go for the installation of automatic ticket vending machines and to upgrade ventilation in some tunnels.


… 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.
