Moscow to Rate Among 10 Largest Megacities of the World in 2012

Expanding the borders of the Russian capital will become the main event of 2012 for Moscow.
      Starting from July, 1st, 2012 Moscow will increase 2.4 times and dwellers of the attached territories will become Muscovites.
      Altogether the Russian capital city is going to include 21 municipal units: two large urban districts - Shcherbinka and Troitsk, and 19 urban and rural settlements that used to be part of Podolsky, Leninsky and Narofominsky Districts of the Moscow Region. Besides, Moscow will include a part of the area of Odintsovo and Krasnogorsk Districts.
      After completion of all the official procedures the area of Moscow will increase from the present 1091 sq. km to 2531 sq. km. Thus, Moscow will rank sixth among the largest megacities of the world after Sydney (12 144 sq. km), Kinshasa (10 550 sq. km), Buenos Aires (4 000 sq. km), Karachi (3530 sq. km) and Alexandria (2680 sq. km).
