Ancient Ruins in Skolkovo to be Build Up Contrary to Protests of Archeologists

The authorities of Skolkovo Settlement, Moscow Region, will not transfer the settlement, despite archeologists' statement that the future building site is harboring ruins of Prince Alexander Menshikov’s Palace dated to the 18th century. 

Nevertheless, in the course of settlement construction six square meters will be fenced for the ancient find in order to include the historical ruins into future landscape, whereas archeologists will be permitted to be on the building site.

However, members of the Union of Architects of Russia disagree with local officials. The scientific secretary of the organization Irina Zaika claims that at least two thousand square meters (a site 40 by 50 meters large) are necessary to be left untouched. 

Architects do not doubt that the found base belongs to Menshikov's Palace, and the major cultural layer is underground and contains many more historical monuments.
