Palace of Culture and Science (Warsaw, Poland). The original colour of it is almost white, but now it's dirty, so if it will be cleaned it will be even more simillar to that Moscow University building.:

I don't see much similarities. The Tour AXA cladding reminds me more of the Royal Bank Plaza towers in Toronto.

I think they where originally built by the same company (although I'm not particularly sure) so they might have wanted a unified image for their company or something?
