Well, a Moscow Times piece allowed to remain here for minutes so far. It’s probably one of very few publications, if not the only one, that continues to publish freely in Russia. Articles from the Moscow Times were once promptly deleted. A few years ago, the owner was Jewish. Don’t know if that’s the case now.
