Hundreds of Cows Vanish From Russian Farm

Hundreds of cows in the Volgograd region have mysteriously disappeared since early October, Interfax reported Monday, citing regional police.

A local farm owner told police that his cows had begun to vanish in early October, the report said. By mid-November, when the number of missing cows hit 350, he decided to appeal to police, he said.

The estimated worth of the 350 cows is 12 million rubles ($266,000). Police are currently conducting an investigation to determine the reason for the disappearance, after which criminal charges may be filed, Interfax reported.

… 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.
