Russia's World Cup Stadiums, in Photos

Besides the renovated Luzhniki Stadium and Yekaterinburg Arena, every other venue hosting World Cup games this summer was tailor-made for the tournament. The latest technological innovations combine with architectural whimsy in these highly anticipated arenas that will each host tens of thousands of fans through the month. 

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.
