Flooding in Far East

Russian emergency personnel are working to contain flooding in the country's Far East after six inches of rain fell on the city of Vladivostok and the surrounding region over the weekend.

Far-eastern Russia and China were devastated by flooding last year, which caused at least $2 billion in damage and almost a hundred confirmed deaths.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
