FSB and police in Russia's Volgograd region have arrested three men who are suspected of financing terrorist activities in Syria. According to the authorities' statement, the three suspects are believed to be members of a terrorist group known as the October Jamaat. 

Investigators also said the men had a grenade launcher and improvised explosive devices in their apartment at the time of the raid. Computers, bank cards, and substances believed to be narcotics were also seized from the apartment. 

The three will be charged with "facilitating terrorist activity." 

… 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.
