Russian History Enthusiasts Re-Enact Battle of Borodino

On Sunday, May 19, Russia's Patriotic Education Center in Moscow organized a historical re-enactment of the final part of the Battle of Borodino, which was fought in 1812 during the French invasion of Russia.

With at least 70,000 casualties, Borodino marked the deadliest day of the Napoleonic Wars. This historic battle has appeared in many Russian pieces of art, including a Tchaikovsky composition and, of course, Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece "War and Peace."

… 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.
