Residents in the Siberian settlement of Khanty-Mansiysk have been warned not to risk their lives by taking photos of a bear sighted within the city limits, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Monday. The town's Emergency Communications Office reported a number of sightings this week, while bear-related posts have flooded local social media.

Local people have been reminded not to approach the bear or to try to take a photo of the animal, but to report all sightings immediately to the local authorities, RIA Novosti 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.
