Russia Experiences Hottest January in Recorded History

Over 70 Russian cities experienced the hottest January in recorded history this year.

For the first time, the average monthly temperature was above freezing in Moscow and St. Petersburg — where temperatures were 9.4 degrees higher than normal.

Russia’s Environment Ministry has warned that temperatures in Russia are rising at a faster rate than the rest of the world because of climate change, which will lead to catastrophic consequences if left unchecked.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
