End of Ramadan: Photo Gallery

Tens of thousands of Muslims gathered at Cathedral Mosque near metro station Prospekt Mira on Thursday to mark the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, known in Russian as Uraza Bairam, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. A police representative said that around the capital almost 150,000 people took part in the celebrations, which he said took place without incident. President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russian Muslims on the holiday and praised the country's Muslim community for their contributions to "educating youth" and "improving interfaith dialogue."

… 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.
