Destruction of Princes Volkonskys House Proceeds in Moscow

The tenant builder has resumed construction works with the Princes Volkonskys’House in Moscow, the Archnadzor social movement reports.

The movement points out that the builders have instruction from the Joint Administrative and Technical Inspectorates of the City of Moscow to stop all works at the address: 9, Vozdvizhenka Street and have no permission for destruction of building elements.

“Dismantling of the historical dome is taking place. Its spike has been pulled out. The metal framework is being sawn with an angle grinder. Called out police squad does not stop works, which are being conducted illegally”- the Archnadzor message alarms. Works on the house, which had once belonged to Leo Tolstoy’s grandfather Prince Volkonsky, were started in March, 2013. In 2009 the house was deprived of the monument status. Works were repeatedly stopped by the police, whereas well-known people of art signed numerous open letters for preservation of this building, Gazeta Ru writes.

On June 25 the tenant builder started spike demolition; to stop it, Archnadzor activists got onto the half-demolished dome. Afterwards it became known that the works were conducted without a permit from technical inspection.
