Historical Building Demolished in Petersburg on Holidays

One of the buildings of the Elizabethan Community of Sisters of Mercy in Sverdlovskaya Embankment was demolished on winter holidays in Petersburg.

      The building was located behind the Kushelevs-Bezborodkos’ mansion.

      Activists of the Live City movement emphasize that the house is still registered as an ascertained cultural heritage side. Since it is not devoid of its security status, such demolition without consent of the Committee on State Control Use and Protection of Historical and Cultural Landmarks is a criminal offense. At the same time they do not rule out that the builders could have had this consent.

      Today the building has been completely demolished. The Committee will be able to comment on the situation with the demolished building upon the study of relevant documentation.
