Russians Form Human Chain to Save Drowning Woman’s Life

Around 30 Russians formed a human chain to save a woman's life in the city of Perm last week.

Onlookers who saw the woman drowning in the river held hands and managed to pull her from the water.

The woman was then brought to doctors for treatment.

The video quickly went viral on Russian social media. Anything is possible with teamwork.

… 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.
