Helping the Homeless in Moscow

Russia, like many other countries, struggles with the problem of homelessness. Estimates of Russia’s homeless population range from the thousands to millions.

Meet Georgina Deiratani, a woman who lived in Syria and moved to Moscow in 2002. Since 2017, she has organized a food bank to feed the homeless at Yaroslavsky Station every Wednesday.

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.
