Anton Nossik: A Life in Pictures

A leading figure in Russia's tech community, Anton Nossik had become known as the 'Godfather' of the Russian Internet. He died Saturday night with friends at a summer house.

Nossik was fined for inciting hatred for an online post "warmly welcoming" Russian air strikes in Syria in April last year. 

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.
