'Sell Your Mansion, Build a Road' — Russia Rallies Against Corruption

More than one thousand Russians were arrested after a wave of anti-corruption protests swept the country on Sunday.

The demonstrations were coordinated by opposition politician Alexei Navalny after he accused Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev of channeling bribes through non-profit organizations and building a collection of yachts and lavish mansions.

In many cities, including the Russian capital, demonstrators gathered despite being refused a protest permit by city authorities. 

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.
