Historical Monument in Kazan Dismantled into Building Materials

Once a noble building of the Alafuzov's House stood at the corner of Clara Tsetkin Street and Uritsky Street in Kazan.
      Now it has been dismantled into bricks by workers for 3 weeks already. Only the facade and a heap of building materials has been left from the building in the Admiralty Village constructed in 1815.
      Representatives of Tatarstan Branch of the All-Russian Society for Protection of History and Culture Monuments are not going to surrender.
      In 2007 they approached the executive committee with a request to include Ivan Alafuzov's House in the list of historical monuments, but it was rejected. Now they are attempting again to make this building recognized as a monument.
      Ivan Alafuzov (1837-1891) was a merchant-industrialist, the founder of linen factory and a skinnery. He lived in this house together with his brothers and their families from 1864. The main office was also located there. Then for some time the house belonged to a factory of cart details.
