Body of Missing Person Found Outside Moscow

The body of a young man believed to be missing French national Nicholas Lazareff has been found in woods outside of Moscow, Russian tabloid Life news reported on Sunday. Lazareff, who had been missing since the early hours of Thursday morning, reportedly died of hypothermia. 

Lazareff, his brother and a friend took a taxi from outside a central Moscow club on Thursday morning, but became ill after drinking beer offered to them by the taxi driver, Life News reported. The driver then robbed them of their valuables and left them on the roadside. Lazareff is believed to have walked into the woods, where he later succumbed to the cold.

The taxi driver has since been detained by Moscow police, Life news 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.
