Rurikids Fail to Get Hold of Moscow Kremlin

The arbitration court of Moscow disallowed descendants of the Rurik dynasty to take the Moscow Kremlin away from tourists and authorities.
      The Foundation Knyazhesky (Princely) presents interests of descendants of the ancient princely dynasties of Russia, such as the Rurikids and the Yusupovs, and claims not only to unlimited use of the Kremlin, the Aleksandrovsky Garden and the Faceted Chamber, but also Kazan Kremlin, and ten kremlins situated in the Moscow Region, among them Mozhaisk, Kolomna, Tula and Dmitrov Kremlins.
      The Foundation is also interested in other historical sites in Russia - Nizhniy Novgorod, Pskov, Rostov and Astrakhan kremlins among them, as well as other fortresses, including those in Ukraine and Poland.
      However, the Rurikids will hardly be able to regain the property since, under the court decision, the claimant has not proved impairment of the rights. The respondents in the case were Rosimushchestvo (Federal Agency for State Property Management), the government of Russia and Ministry of Culture. Even the claim that Knyazhesky Foundation demanded to return the Moscow Kremlin to the Rurikids for the sake of cultural and educational activity did not change the decision of the court.
