Demolition of Moscow flats

4000Following an official decision, some 4000 apartment blocks, the so called Krushchevka flats, will be demolished. Scattered all over the city, the buildings are home to around two million people. The Guardian covers the story in an article and a great photo essay.

Last stroll around Red Road
