Dmitry Kamenshik, the owner of Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, was arrested on Thursday as part of the investigation into the 2011 terrorist attack on the airport.

He has been charged with providing unsafe services that led to one or more deaths, the Meduza news website reported.

… 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.
