Swedes To Build President-Service Complex In Moscow

The household administration of the Russian President has signed with the Swedish firm Ikea a contract to build a president-service complex in Kutuzovsky Prospekt, Vladimir Kozhin, Kremlin property manager, told a news conference in Moscow on Tuesday. Kozhin also said that the presidential household administration plans to restore Constantine's Palace in St. Petersburg, which is to become a state presidential residence and a museum. According to him, Constantine's Palace in St Petersburg will function along the same lines as the Kremlin, which houses the office of the head of state, yet "any one can walk in, take a stroll and look around". According to the property manager, a charity fund has been set up to restore Constantine's Palace. It includes such Petersburg celebrities as well-known actor Kirill Lavrov and Nobel-prize winning physicist Zhores Alfyorov.
