4 Moscow Metro Central Stations to Close Saturday

The repair work follows a crash in the Moscow metro in 2014.

Four metro stations on the orange (Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya) line in central Moscow — Tretyakovskaya, Kitai-Gorod, Turgenevskaya, Sukharevskaya — will be closed on Saturday for track replacement work, the metro administration announced on its website.

The Kitai-Gorod station on the purple (Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya) line will be open as usual, as well as the Tretyakovskaya station on yellow (Kalininskaya) line.

Following a train derailment in July 2014 that resulted in the deaths of more than 20 people, several stations within the circle (Koltsevaya) line have been closed for an entire day at a time to conduct repair work.

… 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.
