The Best of 100 Years Today, Post-Revolution Russia in Your Photos

On Nov. 7, 2017, Russia marked the centenary of the 1917 October Revolution. Far from the days of Bolshevik uprising and Lenin’s formation of a new Soviet government, today's Russia presents a strikingly different picture, with a changing story still being written and told by the residents of this country. 

To capture a glimpse of everyday life in Russia, we asked our readers to show us your day on Nov. 7 — a century after the revolution. Here's a selection of your stories so far.

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.

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.
