Russia's Interior Ministry Offers Reward for Information on Simferopol Shooter

Russia's Interior Ministry has offered a 500,000-ruble ($7,625) reward for information leading to the arrest of a man suspected of opening fire at an ambulance depot in the Crimean city of Simferopol, killing three people.

Police are searching for local resident Bekir Nebiyev, 55, who is suspected of carrying out the attack, the Interior Ministry said in a statement Monday.

Nebiyev allegedly arrived at the depot on Saturday afternoon and opened fire on medics. The day after the attack, Crimea's police published a photo of Nebiyev and called on local residents to share any information about his possible whereabouts.

… 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.
