Russia's State Duma Reconvenes After Summer Recess

The State Duma will reconvene Tuesday for its first plenary meeting after a summer break.

The State Duma's Council was scheduled to meet Monday afternoon to approve an agenda for subsequent plenary sessions, according to the legislature's website.

The Duma reconvenes in full on Tuesday, when Speaker Sergei Naryshkin will address the chamber on its tasks for the next few months — an agenda that is expected to be topped by national budget issues, independent Ekho Moskvy radio reported Monday.

… 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.
