Support The Moscow Times!

Parnas Pamphlet Held Up

A spokeswoman for the liberal Parnas party said Monday that traffic police seized a car in the Moscow region carrying 20,000 copies of a brochure criticizing Vladimir Putin, Interfax reported.

The vehicle was stopped by police as it was leaving a warehouse, party spokeswoman Olga Shorina said. After document checks were conducted by police, the driver was released with the brochures, she 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.
