A Museum With a Mission: Chronicling the History of the Gulag

The Gulag Museum, which began as the passionate vocation of historian and camp survivor Anton Antonov-Ovseyenko in 2001, has just moved from its small, cramped space on Ulitsa Petrovka to a large building reconstructed especially for it.

Here visitors come face-to-face with the dark pages in Soviet history. But here, too, they learn how the human spirit can survive even in the worst conditions.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
