Moscow Destroys Kiosks In Beautification Blitz


The city of Moscow demolished dozens of trading stalls, kiosks, and cafes in a blitz of bulldozers on February 9. A city lawmaker estimated that the demolitions could cause 15,000 people to lose their jobs. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said many of the buildings had been erected illegally in the 1990s and that the capital would now be beautified. (RFE/RL's Russian Service and Current Time TV)
