Russian Hiker Found Alive on Indonesian Volcano

YOGYAKARTA, Indonesia — Searchers in Indonesia have rescued a Russian hiker missing for six days after climbing up the country's most volatile volcano.

Ehbrehnin Yeveny, 26, went missing Saturday while climbing on the southern side of Mount Merapi, a popular site for visitors on the main island of Java.

He sent a text message to his Indonesian girlfriend saying he had lost his way and asking to be rescued.

A spokesman for the local search and rescue agency, Teguh Supriyadi, said Yeveny was found safe Thursday in weak condition with some bruises.

His position, about 2,000 meters altitude, had been located in the morning, but rescuers needed four hours to reach him due to a deep ravine separating them.

… 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.
