Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, Nov. 6

The emblem of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

Twenty-two years ago today, on Nov. 6, 1991, then-Russian President Boris Yeltsin issued a decree banning all Communist Party activities in Russia. He had earlier suspended the party during an investigation into the abortive August Coup, though Mikhail Gorbachev argued that the party as a whole wasn't responsible for what had happened.

… 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.
