Russia: Protest against massive redevelopment project in MoscowNews Moscow, Russia - 14 May 2017
Thousands of opponents of a proposed program to replace old housing in Russia’s capital have held a protest rally on May 14, 2017. They believe the massive plan is prone to abuse by authorities and has other major flaws.
The protesters object to a draft law being considered in the Russian parliament that would give Moscow authorities extra leeway in selecting the buildings to be torn down and offering residents new housing.
Politician Alexei Navalny, his wife Yulia and son Zakhar took part in the rally.
