Moscow Centre Predicted to

In 10-15 years Moscow will be quite a European city with half-dead centre, as Geography Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences predicts. According to their forecast, the elite city districts will turn into golden ghettoes and will exist on a par with quarters for the poor.
      Last century the largest European cities, such as London and Paris, went through the process of population migration from the city centre to the suburbs. This tendency came to Moscow not long ago and by 2006 the Moscow centre population had decreased by 693 thousand people along with the number of suburban citizens growing.
      Geography Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences predicts that in 10-15 years the city centre will almost not be populated by permanent dwellers; the Kremlin will be surrounded with offices and stores.
      However, the changes are said to come not to the centre of the city only: the suburbs will be distinctly segmented according to the social classes` gradation. The scientist predict formation of so-called golden ghettoes fenced guarded territories with a pass entry system that the ordinary citizens are prohibited to enter and quarters for the poor that will be situated in the less prestigious areas of Moscow and will be richly populated by migrants.
      In other words, in 10-15 years Moscow will much more look like a European city compared to what it is now. However, the Russian capital will still remain an anachrocronism in Europe for not long ago dwellers of European cities started migrating back to the cities rather than to the suburbs.
