City Hall Approves Luzhniki Reconstruction Plan

The Luzhniki stadium complex will undergo major reconstruction, the city construction committee said.

The main sporting arena will be rebuilt, and other renovations and new construction will take place for the sports palace, swimming pool, soccer school building, small sports arena, the soccer academy, the children's sporting center, covered tennis courts, ticket offices and the main entrance, a city spokesman said last week, Interfax reported.

There will be five entirely new buildings constructed, including a sports hotel, six cafes, a chapel and an international sambo center, the source added. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
