Part of Moscow Metro's Purple Line Not Running

Three central stations on the Moscow metro's Purple Line — Pushkinskaya, Kuznetsky Most and Kitai-Gorod — will be closed on Saturday for the tracks to be repaired, the metro said on its website.

The rest of the Purple Line will operate as usual up to those stops, the statement said. Kitai-Gorod's Orange Line section will also be closed but will allow trains to pass through.

The repaired stations will reopen on Sunday at about 5:30 a.m., the statement said, noting that the work is being performed on the weekend so as to affect only a minimal number of passengers.

… 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.
