I think we are experiencing a little (more) Moscow-megalomania.
And most of these 124 buildings aren't fancy skyscraper but social housing blocks like the ones I showed, just a little taller.

In this you are right, most of the buildings are really 100 + homes. But they do not look like you have shown, it is really quite pathetic provincial houses, which were built in the 90s, now in Moscow architectural committee just would not let this build.

Yes there is a lot of old ugly stuff (except the 7 sisters). But the new buildings look very nice and of course those are the ones people show when showing off the skyline.

So I agree with both of you

What are you talking about ? Those blocks from your pic have 17 floors - ~60 meters. Nobody counts them as skyscrapers..100 meters > 25 floors.
Even these quite high white-blue appartment houses are only 90 meters (25 floors)

My top 9 is not only based on the quantity or height of the High-rises/Skyscrapers, but based on the positioning of the skyline, the (urban)space planning and the harmony between the Buildings.

1 Frankfurt
2 Paris
3 Warsaw
4 London (CW)
5 Rotterdam
6 Moscow
7 Istanbul
8 The Hague
9 Milan

Lol.. Where did you see skyscrapers (100+ meters) looking like those ones ?
Most of 100+ meters appartment houses that scattered overall in Moscow are very good looking
