Commission to Live Cheaper

The government wants the Federal Property Management Agency to find cheaper digs for the Eurasian Economic Commission rather than buying the building at 1 Arbatskaya Ploshchad from a co-owner of the Region investment company for 8.4 billion rubles ($290 million), Kommersant reported Thursday.

The White House recommended that the property agency either buy a building with a lower price or just rent office space for the commission.

The commission, headed by Viktor Khristenko, was formed in December by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan to direct the Customs Union between them, which took effect Jan. 1.

… 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.
