Police are searching Moscow's Novomoskovsky district for a group of five to seven unidentified men who attacked a patrol of Russian national guardsmen on Thursday night, killing one and wounding another.

A source in law enforcement told the RIA Novosti news service that the attackers also managed to get away with two automatic rifles and a pistol, all with full ammunition. 

… 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.
