MOSCOW, September 26 (Itar-Tass) —— The criminal case was opened over 50 hectares of historical layer destroyed on the Borodino Field in the Moscow Region, a source in the Moscow Regional Prosecutor’s Office said on Wednesday.
The Mozhaisk town prosecutor’s office found that from August 2010 up to now unidentified criminals “have done unauthorized deliberate works” for the destruction of the historical layer on the Borodino Field on the north-western outskirts of the village Staroye Selo on a total of five hectares that belong to the territory of the Borodino open-air museum.
“The historical layer of the Battle of Borodino was destroyed that was filled with the unique information and artefacts, which point to the combat actions on this territory in August 1812. The cultural layer was destroyed to a depth from 0.2 to 1.2 metres,” a source in the supervising agency noted.
The police detectives in the Mozhaisk district opened a criminal case over the materials of the prosecutor’s office under Article 243 Part 2 of the Criminal Code for destruction or damage to the monuments of history and culture. The criminal article envisages a fine from 100,000 to 500,000 roubles, compulsory works for a term of up to 480 hours or a term of up to five years in prison.
The Mozhaisk prosecutor’s office is keeping the investigation into the criminal case under control.
