Activists Remind Petersburg Authorities of Lost Monuments Again

New boards marking city planning mistakes of the city administration have appeared in the streets of Saint Petersburg.
      This is already the third action in the framework of the project Memory of the Losses, which was launched on the City Day, May 27, 2009. This time the activists are attracting attention to two addresses:
      House 7 in Esperova Street (Krestovski Island) build by architect E.A. Gustavson in 1902 was hastily taken off the protection as a cultural heritage object in September 2007 and in five days only was demolished in order to build mansions for judges of the Constitutional Court. Protests and legal actions of the house residents evicted from their apartments still go on.
      The house of the clergy of the Kazan Cathedral at 25/1, Nevski Prospect was subjected to reconstruction much earlier, back in the 1990s. As a result of the project developed by the then chairman of the Committee on State Control, Use and Protection of Historical and Cultural Landmarks Nikita Yavein, the building was partly brought down and underwent major rebuilding, loosing its inner yard above all.
