17 Century Architecture Monument Destroyed in Moscow

Archnadzor has instituted legal administrative proceedings against JSC Kapitel that destroyed an architecture monument in Moscow.

      The contractor had to carry out prime anti-damage works on the monument facades. However, the architecture monument in Ostozhenka Street was just taken down instead.

      In July the city defenders found only a huge ditch and a number of wall fragments left where the house used to be.

Kireevsky's Chambers in 19, Ostozhenka, were a cultural heritage site of federal value. 

      The house built in the 17th century was owned by the Slavophile and folklore expert Pyotr Kireevsky in the late 19th century.

      Lately the building belonged to the Orthodox religious organization of the Zachatyevsky Convent of Moscow.
