Human Bones Found on Central Moscow Street

Human remains have been found in the center of Moscow.

Human remains have been discovered on a boulevard in the center of Moscow, local police said.

The bones were discovered on Petrovsky Boulevard, near to the Trubnaya metro station on the city's Light Green Line, Interfax news agency reported Wednesday, citing a police source.

Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda said residents of the central boulevard woke up to find half a human skull and two large bones lying in the middle of the road.

The tabloid said the bones had been dug up by an excavator during construction work, and cited a police source as saying the remains likely belonged to someone who had died a natural death.

The Interior Ministry confirmed the discovery but refused to give any further details, the report 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.
