Moscow Region Plans $20M Property Sale

The Moscow region will privatize real estate worth more than 600 million rubles ($18 million) before the end of 2013, Kommersant reported Monday.

Four two-story buildings dating from the turn of the 20th century, now in use as office space, will be sold in Moscow itself, and four in the Moscow region. Among these is the Krekshino mansion, 25 kilometers beyond the ring road, which is classified as a culturally significant building.

The Government also announced plans to sell its shares in two small companies in the region.  

"During an inventory check, we judged that the eight items that are up for sale are being used inefficiently," said Andrei Averkiyev, the region's property minister, adding that the review, covering 150 items of real estate and shares in companies, is ongoing.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
