Looks like another small section of the tower's formworks moved up another floor. Not much to show for over the last 10 months. I hope Mirax Group will finish this one.

Mirax Group company's assets were frozen by a court for failing to repay a $242m loan

...

Mr Polonsky, the company's chief executive, was valued at $1.2bn by Forbes magazine last year.

He says the group will now cease all construction.

One of its most famous projects is the Federation Tower skyscraper in Moscow, which was due to open in 2010.
Obviously the project is at a far too advanced stage to get changed at all. But looks like there will be a delay while the financial mess is sorted out.

Well, thats not what he said, he said "У кого нет миллиарда, могут идти в жопу", literaly, "those who don't have a billion can go into the arse".

And now he can't find 242 mln$, oh, the irony!
