Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, Oct. 3

Denikin and Ilyin are buried at the Donskoy Monastery in Moscow. Arseni

8 years ago today, on Oct. 3, 2005, over 2,500 gathered in Moscow in order to be present at the reburial of General Anton Denikin and philosopher Ivan Ilyin. Both men fled Russia after the October Revolution, but expressed the wish to be buried in their native country in their will.

… 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.
