One Day in a Wheelchair in Moscow

An estimated 8% of Russians have disabilities, but they are rarely seen on Moscow’s streets. Activists say it’s because the city lacks accessibility for people in wheelchairs.

We spent a day with Diana, a young joyful woman who is disabled, to see what it’s like to travel by metro in Moscow.
