Siberian Airport Employee Fined for Taking Shortcut Through Fence

An airport employee in the Siberian town of Kodinsk has been fined for creating an opening in the airport's fence and climbing through it to gain access to a restricted zone last month.

The employee had been working outside the airport's perimeters and had wanted to speed up his entry by dodging compulsory security checks, the West Siberian Transportation Prosecutor's Office said Wednesday in an online statement.

The employee has been fined 3,000 rubles ($45) for breaching transport safety rules, the statement 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.
