Archeology Monument Destroyed in Ryazan Region

A civil engineering firm has dug out an open-cast mine near Dubrovichi Village (Ryazan Region) on the place of an archaeological monument and thus destroyed about 400 square meters of Dubrovichesky site of an ancient settlement.
      It was done contrary to the protective agreement that forbids building works on the area having the status of an archaeological heritage site. The site has several historical layers; last year archeologists found there an artifact dating back to the neolith.
      Conflict between historians and builders has been going on for over one year now. Officially works have been suspended there and yet a check-up revealed that the open-cast mine had expanded and already absorbed the entire area of the archeological site.
