Vladivostok Gets Month's Worth of Snow in Single Night

Vladivostok was covered in its monthly norm of snow for March.

A month's worth of snow fell on Vladivostok within a few hours early Wednesday after a severe storm hit the far eastern city.

By 9 a.m., Vladivostok was covered in its monthly norm of snow for March, the Interfax news agency cited the regional branch of the national weather service as saying.

A number of long-distance bus routes have been suspended, and police appealed to residents to avoid traveling unless absolutely necessary, the report said, citing local authorities.

Schools and kindergartens in Vladivostok remained open, but the city's education department said it was up to the parents to decide whether to take their children to school, according to Interfax.

… 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.
