Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, Nov. 25

Monument to the pilots of Normandie-Niemen in Moscow. A. Terentyev

Seventy-one years ago today, on Nov. 25, 1942, the Soviet Union and France signed an agreement that led to the creation of the Normandie-Niemen fighter squadron of the French Air Force. It fought on behalf of the Soviet Union in three campaigns during World War II, becoming one of only two Western air combat units to fight of the Eastern Front.

… 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.
