Perhaps because of the cold, and perhaps technical difficulties.

Certainly not because of money, the campaign is building a building - are growing stronger importer of cigarettes in Russia.

Who knows...!?

COMPARISON OF PHOTOS
for the crucial moment when MCT reached the 301.60 m of City of Capitals tower and became the highest tower in Europe :

Not yet :

Im sure it wont, there was never a plan for the shard to be the tallest in Europe, I think we all thought Federations tower would have been completed years ago so it would never have had a chance to be, I certainly thought this tower also would have been completed way before the shard as well, didnít construction above ground level start in 2005 or 2006 or something like that?

More like 2009. Look up the first 10 pages. But good try, 3-4 years, close enough...

All those sad workers in the West Tower, they looked out the window and they saw all those years only a concrete structure.
