Most of Russia in Asia but Moscow is in Europe. It's the only true Eurasia country and I use that term very loosely.

No problem.
But there was nothing intersting and nothing new yesterday except the elevation of the cladding so I thought it was enough to post the pics of that process...

Can someone clear up the true height of this building to me? 506m is the height of the central spire, which since it runs and suports itself most of the height, might be considered different structure, like both the main uneven towers respectfully, or so I heard. Is this true ?

depend on spire structure. if it's not a free standing and is connected to east tower then it's a part of east tower.
