A Trip Around Russia on New Year's Eve

Some 8.6 million people took part in street celebrations across Russia on New Year's Eve on Dec. 31.

Revelers in the Far East were first to ring in the New Year, with the capital Moscow following some nine hours later. 

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.
