Serpukhov Kremlin at Risk of Destruction due to Unprofessional Restoration

Authorities of Moscow Region have taken to court files concerning the damage caused to the Serpukhov Kremlin due to illegal excavations carried out by locals.
      Workers of the culture ministry of the Moscow Region have established and called to administrative responsibility three Serpukhov residents, who explained the fact of their earthworks as an attempt to restore the Kremlin independently. As a result the architecture monument was caused damage assessed at 2.3 million rubles.
      Similar situations are not a rarity in the Moscow Region: in the same Serpukhov a local deputy and businessman redeemed a dilapidated building of a malthouse of the 18th century and built a four-storeyed house in its place. The city administration makes allowance that the businessman allegedly didn't know he had redeemed a monument of architecture of federal value. Builders in Kolomna demolished a part of a mansion of the 19th century, and local officials claim that it is reconstruction and restoration. In Klin a monument of federal value - Klin Malls - has been marred: local businessmen added to it a modern building, which does not fit into the 19th century ensemble neither in its height, nor its style.
