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.

We need your help now more than ever.

Independent media outlets and journalists in Russia are being increasingly targeted with “foreign agent” and “undesirable” labels, threatening the existence of the free press day by day.
