European Commission Troubled by Russian Economic Problems

The European Commission is worried about recent developments in Russia and has no interest in seeing the country's economy hobbled, a Commission official said on Wednesday.

"We are all watching the economic developments in Russia with concern," the official said at a briefing in Berlin ahead of a summit of European Union leaders that starts on Thursday in Brussels.

"No one has an interest in Russia falling into a deep depression," added the official, who requested anonymity.

… 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.
