Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, April 25

Seventy-one years ago today, on April 25, 1942, the Moscow mint was founded under the Russian unitary enterprise Goznak, which oversaw the process of making rubles. The mint's first task was to manufacture medals and awards for military honors. In addition to bank notes and medals, the bank also has produced powder boxes, chandeliers, and cigarette cases.

… 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.
