Baby Killed Over Alimony

A father in Khanty-Mansiisk has admitted to murdering his 2-year-old daughter and throwing her body in a drainage ditch to avoid paying alimony, the local branch of the Investigative Committee said on its web site Wednesday.

The unidentified man first reported the girl as missing, but admitted to killing her on police interrogation. He faces up to 20 years in prison on murder charges.


… 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.

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.
