Russia Welcomes 2020 With Fireworks and Festivities

Street celebrations take place across Russia each year on Dec. 31, New Year's Eve.

The first regions to ring in the New Year are those in the Far East, before the celebrations reach Moscow some nine hours later.

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.
