Odd News: Giant Pig Monument Discovered in Sverdlovsk

The blogosphere has become mesmerized by a rather puzzling monument discovered in the Sverdlovsk region: a giant metal pig monument. The pristine masterpiece — undamaged by vandals, unweathered by the sands of time — bears no inscription or author's signature and sits on the border between the Bogdanovichesky district and the Kamyshlovsky district. It was brought to light by prominent Yekaterinburg lawyer Sergei Kolosovsk, who posted photos on his blog.

… 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.
