MOSCOW, May 23 (Itar-Tass) - A new parliament building will be built in downtown Moscow. A concrete place for a new parliament building will be announced soon, Russian chief presidential property manager Vladimir Kozhin told reporters on Thursday.
“I hope that soon we will be able to announce finally about a place, where it will be built,” he said, explaining that he does not want to name a concrete place “in order not to stir up agitation over it and not to fan up the passions.”
“Actually, this will be the central part of Moscow,” the chief presidential property manager said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier stated that it should be clarified before choosing the place to erect a new parliament building what monetary funds are available for this. “The expenditures related with a new place of a parliamentary centre should be calculated thoroughly,” the president said, noting that these expenditures will be related “not only with the building, but also with the infrastructure, transport, communication lines, including the special communications line.” Finally, the work “directly touches on the interests of the federal budget,” Putin noted.
The president also noted that at first it should be clarified, “how we will be able to evaluate the current buildings of the State Duma and the Federation Council - approximately how much they will cost.” “Only then we will realize on what crediting resources we can hope for,” he said in conclusion.
A parliamentary compound, if it stays within the city boundaries, will be built for three years, if it is built on the territory of the ‘new’ Moscow, it will be constructed for four years, Chairman of the State Duma Committee for the parliamentary centre Vladimir Resin said.
