Cult Film Studio of St. Petersburg to be Edged Out by Elite Housing

The fate of the well-known Russian Film Studio Lenfilm is sealed: it has been placed to the hands of the businessman Vladimir Yevtushenkov.
       The sad news has spread upon the publication in mass-media of a "secret document" of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The paper specifies that the film studio has been refused the subsidy requested by the Culture Ministry from the Ministry of Finance.
       The Studio may be moved to the suburbs of Petersburg, whereas the world famous pavilions will most likely give place to a business center and elite housing. Earlier the illustrious Russian film directors Alexander Sokurov and Aleksei German had addressed Vladimir Putin with the request to rescue Lenfilm Studio.
