Great pix!

Looks like Moscow is undergoing a major building boom. Are these the first 'real' skyscrapers in Moscow? Looks like it - very nice little addition to the skyline.

P.S. Our tower is bigger than your puny little tower!

The buildings are nice. All the construction business and real estate, all taht is owned by comapny called Mosgorstroi, which is owned by Yelena Nikolayevna Baturina, Russia's richest woman, worth about 4 billion American dollars at the moment, but, more importantly, the wife of dear Mayor (Tsar, if you ask him) Luzhkov, who, though, says he has no idea what she does with her business, that it is HER business, and all the money she made (and she made her first billion in one year, back in 2006!) and the total monopoly on construction and real estate that she has established, all that she did on her own

Like the traffic jams, by the way? lol
