As the summer days turn into summer nights, Muscovites are finding more and more creative ways to get romantic.

Some of the boldest couples have been caught on camera frolicking at a park near the Kremlin, according to Moscow’s chief architect.

“We’re seeing an unprecedented number of cases where people are having sex here at Zaryadye [Park]” chief architect Sergei Kuznetsov said Friday.

“There are videos,” he was quoted as saying by the Moskva news agency.

Kuznetsov tied the uptick in public copulation to the safety and comfort that Moscow provides visitors and residents, the agency said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
