Rogov's House Commemorated with Moment of Silence

Petersburg city defenders have conducted the action of a moment of silence in memory of the demolished Rogov's House. 

      The action was initiated by activists of the movement Live City.

      Meanwhile, the activists have urged to consider their actions not as a performance, but as a memory tribute. The press release of the action reported: “September 3 marks exactly 9 days since the moment of its death. Let there be lots of flowers at its fence on this day”.

      Let's remind that the architectural monument Rogov's House at the corner of Shcherbakov Lane and Zagorodny Avenue was demolished last  Sunday, August 26. The building was destroyed in spite of public protests.
