Moscow Metro Makes Masks Glamorous Again

As Russia recently reinstated a national mask mandate and the nation battles a record-breaking second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the Moscow Metro decided to get creative with its public health advert urging Muscovites to protect themselves and follow public health regulations.

The video, showing two dancers on a metro car in both masks and gloves, is a fun take on what is actually a very serious issue. 

… 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.
