Citizens of Moscow Region Urge to Rescue Grebnevo Estate

Citizens of the Moscow Region plead the authorities to rescue Grebnevo Estate, the security zone of which, though a monument of architecture, culture and history, is being sold out piece by piece.

      They have forwarded a request to pay attention to the situation and to undertake appropriate measures for prevention of destruction of the estate to the regional culture minister A. Gubankov.

      “In order to avoid repetition of the situations in Borodino, Arkhangelskoye Estate, and now in Veshki, we request to stop urgently the sale and surveying of sites in the security zone of the Grebnevo Estate and seize all transactions with these lands”- the letter reads.

      Local authorities have transferred a part of lands of Grebnevo from the status of a security zone to the status of summer cottage sites.

      The historical and cultural monument Grebnevo Estate is located at the distance of 30 km to the northeast from MKAD (Moscow Circle Road) in the vicinity of Fryazino town. The estate was built in 1780-1790 and its main building with two churches has survived to this day.
