Duma deputy sues for demolition

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 26, 2010. Sverdlovsk Region Duma deputy Andrei Alshevskikh placed his complaint regarding the Former Hydropathical Establishment, a monument of architecture recently pulled down in the center of Yekaterinburg, with the region’s Ministry of Culture and public prosecution authorities.
The nineteenth century building was situated on the premises of a construction site for Sberbank of Russia’s Ural branch new, high-rise office building in Rosa Luxemburg St. The bank originally signed a contract for the restoration of the building, but the piece got demolished instead.
‘I wrote to the Ministry of Culture and the region’s public prosecution authorities. Let’s see what they are going to say,’ the deputy says.
