Constructions near several metro stations, including Kuzminki, Vykhino and Tsaritsino, have also been pegged for demolition.

According to the authorities, the objects lack the necessary permits and have been built close to communication networks, electric grids and other crucial infrastructure. “Moscow continues its fight against illegal buildings,” the online statement reads.

To date there have been four demolition waves in the capital, as part of a wide-reaching urban renewal campaign under Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
