Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, June 19

Sixty years ago today, on June 19, 1953, Julius Rosenburg and his wife Ethel were executed in the U.S. having earlier been convicted of espionage and sentenced to death. The Rosenburgs, who were charged with passing on atomic secrets to the Soviet Union, protested their innocence to the end and to this day the case remains one of the most mysterious criminal trials in recent history.

… 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.
