In 2012 Russia lost 40 cultural heritage sites, including 31 architectural and 9 archaeological monuments.

      At the same time, according to the director of the Department of Cultural Heritage Control, Supervision and Licensing of the RF Culture Ministry Vladimir Tsvetnov, the number of cultural heritage sites with good or satisfactory condition has increased up to 54 per cent from 35 per cent of the previous year.
