Two Waitresses Shot to Death in Chechen Cafe

Two waitresses were shot dead in a cafe in Russia’s Chechnya republic on Thursday evening, the regional branch of the Investigative Committee said in a statement Friday.

Three armed men in masks burst into the Lolita cafe in the Chechen capital Grozny and shot the waitresses, aged 45 and 55, who both died at the scene, the statement said.

They then fled the scene in a Lada Priora car. A murder investigation has been launched, the Investigative Committee said.

… 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.
