On one side I understand on another side it is a form of erasing history. I suspect as often is the case the individuals citizens will be shafted.

For what i read on ru-speaking forums: most of the buildings that are planned for demolition are dangerous for the people who live in it.  They will get another housing and not in Butovo. I read cases where someone gets 20m2 in the new place (still in the center) because they lost the view on the river they had and alike. Couple of buildings are of architectural value and do not seem to be in such a bed shape. For what i read, it's not a final decision yet to take them down, and of course, many of the involved are happy with the plan and many are not, as usually  :biggrin:
You know... I recall at the time when i said to one Greek lady that i was surprised how many Greek artifacts i saw in British museums, she said: oh, we still have plenty for ourselves  :laugh:
The same with Moscow's buildings... They'll still have enough  :BLUSH:
