Well, who know - may be, construction works will be stopped or greatly slowed due to these activists. I just want to write about reasons for such possible future problems.

Most of them actually doesn't care about park, because surface works never been under consideration, only tunnels. They only care about the fact that when their station won't be terminal on the line they won't have free seats.
They should do some digging while they're at it. Who knows what could turn up? It's well-documented that this particular park is a notorious dumping ground for Moscow serial killers.

What serial killers? I'm know only about one - Alexander Pichushkin, also known as The Bitsa Park Maniac and The Chessboard Killer. He is considered one of the most brutal murderers in the world's criminal history.

Sometimes I regret that Russia introduced a moratorium on the death penalty.

I am no expert on Russian criminal law, but I believe the moratorium only applies to judicial capital punishment; that is, extrajudicial capital punishment is still in force. That is to say, the moratorium did not get rid of the death penalty but merely restricted the list of venues where it takes place. Anyway, that is a subject for a whole different thread.

Yes, that's the only serial killer I know that is associated with this park, and that is perhaps what is most famous about this particular park.

And I, for one, like those stations. Well, if you have a different taste, here ya go:

Zhulebino and Lermontovskiy Prospekt, Line 7, expected to open in 2013. Colourful, huh? I like these two too. The real problem is, Mayor Sobyanin ordered to prepare type designs for new metro stations, and, well, Metrogiprotrans (the Metro's design studio) made his wish come true. We'll have type designs on the northern radius of Line 10, the Third Interchange Circuit, and - most disappointingly - on three stations of the western extension of Line 8, which will be situated in the historical center of the city. Seriously, it's a shame; the point is that I, for instance, do like the designs of the new stations themselves, but the fact that many of them will basically share the same look differing only in details is frustrating. Yeah

And I'm absolutely agree with you. The future stations look very boring, with cheap Chinese plastic on the track walls. The station with screen doors is a full lack of architecture, only pure functionality. Metro becoming utilitarian kind of transport. However, Russian Metro stations only reflect the architectural style and tastes of own times.

Not for the first time, and, I believe, not for the last. The stations of 60s are utilitarian too. And I don't think that the new projects are uglier than those of 60s. And, riding the TK-line, you will be glad to see this station:

after this:

(Wikipedia)

Moreover, projects like this were even in "the beauty age" of the Metro.
Compare Kozhukhovskaya (1995)

(Wikipedia)

with Lermontovskiy prospekt or Alma-atinskaya

All right. 1960s was the era of cheap buildings in the Soviet architecture. It was era of Khrushchev buildings, which are known as "commie blocks". And I never said, that stations of 1960s are beautiful. For Muscovites, such stations are not such comfortable as stations of earlier decades. And I don't understand - why need to come back to this simplification?

Of course, post-Soviet 1990s were not "beautiful times". There was difficult economical situation in the country, and the Metro stations of 1990s were ordinary, although with own style.

A reason to be happy:

At least these new stations do not have bathroom tile on the walls.

This does look lovely, but the rest don't really have the same qualities as this station IMO

Yes this is exactly my point,except for the station above, which looks very good
