MOSCOW, March 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow Kremlin turned off external lights as part of the Earth Hour project on Saturday, March 29.
The lights went off at precisely 20:30 Moscow time. The nearby National History Museum and the St. Basil Cathedral turned out their lights too. The garlands of electric bulbs on the facade of the GUM State Department Store in Red Square went dark seconds later.
The place is quite crowded as many people have come to watch the start of Earth Hour. All the lights will be turned on again at 21:30.
More than 300 buildings in Moscow turned off their lights during Earth Hour.
Russia has been participating in the Earth Hour events since 2008. The Moscow Kremlin joined it last year.
