The Moscow Times is an English-language daily newspaper published in Moscowmarker, Russiamarker since 1992. The circulation in 2008 stood at 35,000 copies and the newspaper is typically given out for free at places English-language "expats" attend, including hotels, caf├ęs and restaurants, as well as by subscription, though it is being increasingly read by English-speaking Russians. It is not available at newsstands.

The paper began as a twice weekly publication, before becoming a daily newspaper after a few months. Based in the old headquarters of Pravda, it was the first Western daily to be published in Russia.

Until 2005, the paper was owned by Independent Media, a Moscow-registered publishing house that also prints a Russian-language daily newspaper, Vedomosti, The St. Petersburg Times (the equivalent of the Moscow Times in Saint Petersburgmarker) and Russian-language versions of popular glossy magazines such as FHM, Men's Health and Cosmopolitan. That year, Independent Media was acquired by the Finnish publishing group Sanoma.

The Editor-in-Chief is Andrew McChesney, who was promoted to the position in June 2006 after serving in a number of capacities in the newspaper.

The newspaper regularly publishes articles by prominent Russian journalists, many of whom take critical positions towards the current Russian government in general.In 2009, the Moscow Times published Russia for Beginners: A Foreigners Guide to Russia, a guide for foreigners written by foreign authors who have lived in Russia, and offers their experiences in Russia.

The newspaper, as well as its sister publication, the The St. Petersburg Times, are owned by the Finlandmarker-based Sanoma Corporation.
