Moscow Metro's Dark Blue Line Central Stations to Close Saturday

Three central stations on the Dark Blue Line of Moscow's metro — Smolenskaya, Arbatskaya and Ploshchad Revolyutsii — will be closed on Saturday for track repairs.

The trains will run as usual from Kievskaya metro station to Pyatnitskoye Shosse and from Kurskaya to Shchyolkovskaya, the metro's press service said in a statement Wednesday.

The stations will reopen at 5.30 a.m. on Sunday.

Moscow metro stations have started to have regular closures for repairs ever since a deadly accident on the Dark Blue Line in July 2014. As a result of the incident, 24 people were killed and 188 injured.

… 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.
