Moscow Metro Extends to Town of Kotelniki

The Moscow metro on Monday opened a new station in the satellite town of Kotelniki to the south of the city.

The Kotelniki station, inaugurated Monday by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and Moscow Region Governor Andrei Vorobyov, is the Purple Line's southernmost stop and the third station outside the city perimeters.

The station's platforms have built-in phone chargers and commuters will be able to buy drinks, snacks and metro-themed souvenirs from vending machines, the TASS news agency reported Monday, citing the metro's deputy head Yury Degtyarev.

The Kotelniki station will allow passengers to enter the metro using contactless-enabled bank cards “in the near future,” the metro said in a statement.

Other services at the new station include an interactive information point that prints out itineraries and a map showing the location of the city's cultural attractions, the metro 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.

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.
