Moscow’s annual hot water switch-off is set to hit the capital on May 10, local authorities have announced.

The dreaded annual rite of passage will see more than 33,000 apartment blocks lose their hot water for a ten-day stretch so that maintenance can take place.

Different neighborhoods will see their water turned off at different times between May and August 25, when the work is set to end.

… 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.
