Moscow's Metro Is the Perfect Zombie Apocalypse Hideout

With millions of passengers every day, the Moscow Metro is one of the busiest in the world.

Little do commuters know that the metro could also serve as a shelter in case of a zombie invasion. 

Russian illustrator and designer Max Degtyarev spells out how the Metro could save Muscovites in the event of a zombie apocalypse.

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.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
