Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, Dec. 4

Sixty-seven years ago today, on Dec. 4, 1946, the first Moskvich-400 car was assembled in Moscow at what became known as the Leninist Komsomol Automobile Factory. The car was almost an exact copy of the German-made Opel Kadett and had a top speed of 90 kilometers per hour.

… 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.
