"SHELEPIKHA"

"Shelepikha" is a future station of the Third Interchange Contour of the Moscow Metro. It will be located along the Moscow Little Ring Railway near the intersection of the Shelepikha Highway and Shmit Driveway, in the Presnensky District, Central Administrative Okrug.

The station named after former village in which it will be located. The village of Shelepikha is known since 15th century. The name of this village is derived from the personal name of Shelepa. This village became populated since 1740s. In 1812 Shelepikha was burned during occupation of Moscow by Napoléon's Grande Armée. In 19th century there was built few factories and plants in this area. The population of this settlement was 432 inhabitants in the end of 19th century. In 1927 Shelepikha was included into city boundaries. Since mid-1940s, it became one of the industrial zones in Moscow. Since mid-1950s, there began mass construction of the living houses in this area.

The decision to build Metro station "Shelepikha" was made according to the resolution of the city government on June 24, 2008. It was planned to be built at the Shelepikha Highway. On February 12, 2011 it was decided to waive from construction of this station due to its location in the industrial zone. But nevertheless, in the summer of 2012 it was declared that "Shelepikha" will be built during first stage of the construction of the Third Interchange Contour. In October 2012 were started geological researches near future Metro station "Shelepikha". In November 2012 were started preliminary works at the construction site of the station.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Orlov and Vadim Volovich. "Shelepikha" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type (although few days ago appeared rumours that it will be built at deep level). There are planned to build two underground vestibules with three exits at the Shelepikha Highway.

"KHOROSHYOVSKAYA"

"Khoroshyovskaya" is a future station of the Third Interchange Contour of the Moscow Metro. It will be located along the Khoroshyovo Highway near its intersections with the Kuusinen Street and 4th Magistral Street, in the Khoroshyovsky District, Northern Administrative Okrug. It will be have transfer to Metro station "Polezhayevskaya" on the Line 7 ("Vasily Polezhayev"; opened on December 30, 1972).

The station is named after Khoroshyovo Highway near which it will be located. Previously it was known as Voskresensk Highway due to its direction to the town Voskresensk in Moscow Region, west of Moscow. In 1930 this town was renamed into Istra, and in 1935 Voskresensk Highway was renamed into Khoroshyovo Highway due to its direction to the settlement of Khoroshyovo. The settlement of Khoroshyovo, which is known since 1572, was included into city boundaries in 1960. Since 1947, there began mass construction of the living houses at the Khoroshyovo Highway.

It's interesting that Metro station "Polezhayevskaya" (at which will be built transfer on Third Interchange Contour) also had project name "Khoroshyovskaya". In early-1970s, there was built Metro station with planned name "Khoroshyovskaya" on the Line 7. But Vasily Polezhayev (1909-1972), who was Hero of Socialist Labour (1963) and Head of Moscow "Metrostroy" construction company in 1958-1972, died few months before the opening of this station. Therefore, it was decided to rename this station and to open it as "Polezhayevskaya".

Opened on December 30, 1972 as part of the original Krasnopresnenky Radius of the Line 7, the station is unusual in the Metro as its construction features three pathways and two platforms. While it was not the first station to be built with such a design (the first was "Partizanskaya" opened in 1944), the purpose for such a design was different. The plan called for the station to be a junction point between a branch going off to large forest park Serebryanny Bor (Silver Pinewood). However, the plan was scrapped after the construction of the station had already started, and the station was completed as originally planned. The station has a widened pillar three-vaulted design (depth - 11 m), with one row of pillars in the centre of each platform, creating a wide space above the centre track. The octagonal pillars are faced with white and yellow marble of different shades and the track walls are lined with white glazed ceramic tiles are accredited to the architects A. Fokina and Lev Popov. The floor is paved with grey granite. The walls and columns of the ticket halls are faced with grey marble. There is a memorial plate in honour of Vasily Polezhayev in the vestibule. Only the northern platform is open for passengers. The southern platform is closed and the third track (with the tunnel that goes another 340 metres before a siding) is used for night time stands for the trains. Two vestibules (one with a closed escalator) are interlinked with underpasses under the Khoroshyovo Highway.

The decision to build Metro station "Khoroshyovskaya" was made according to the resolution of the city government on June 24, 2008. In November 2011 were started geological researches near Metro station "Khoroshyovskaya". In July 2012 began preparation of the construction site of the future station. In September 2012 there began pile-drilling works.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Orlov and Vadim Volovich. "Khoroshyovskaya" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type. It will be built along the Khoroshyovo Highway, parallel to Metro station "Polezhayevskaya". There are planned to build two underground vestibules with two exits at the Khoroshyovo Highway.

"KHODYNSKOYE POLE"

"Khodynskoye Pole" ("Khodynka Field") is a future station of the Third Interchange Contour of the Moscow Metro. It will be built under territory of the future park on the Khodynka Field, between Khodynka Boulevard and airstrip, in the Khoroshyovsky District, Northern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after historical area where it will be located. Khodynka Field is a large open space in the north-west of Moscow, at the beginning of the present-day Leningrad Avenue. It takes its name from the small Khodynka River which used to cross the neighbourhood. It was firstly mentioned in 1389 in the testament of Grand Prince of Moscow Dmitry Donskoy (1350-1389). In the beginning of 17th century, there occurred battles between troops of Russian Tsar Vasily IV and False Dmitry II. In 19th on Khodynka Field were opened Moscow Hyppodrome (1834), Nicholas Military Barracks (1898-1899) and the Botkin Hospital (1908-1910), the largest in Moscow at the time of its inauguration in 1910. Prior to becoming an airfield, Khodynka had been used to celebrate state occasions, the first of these celebrations was organized in 1775 according to order of Catherine the Great and was dedicated to the signing of Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca of 1774 with Ottoman Empire. In 1856 there were organised celebrations dedicated to the coronation of Alexander II. In June 1883 was coronation of Alexander III. The event was co-ordinated by Russian actor Mikhail Lentovsky (1843-1906) and included four theatres, a circus, puppet shows choirs and orchestras. The central point was an allegorical procession entitled "Spring is Beautiful". In May 1896, the site was used for the ill-fated coronation of Emperor Nicholas II. A stampede caused by a rumoured shortage in souvenir coronation mugs resulted in more than 1000 (some sources say 1500) people being trampled to death.

The Khodynka Tragedy was a human stampede that occurred on May 30, 1896, on Khodynka Field in Moscow during the festivities following the coronation of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II, which resulted in the deaths of 1389 people. Nicholas II was crowned Emperor of Russia on May 26, 1896. Four days later, a banquet was going to be held for the people at Khodynka Field. In the area of one town square, theaters, 150 buffets for distribution of gifts, and 20 pubs were built for the celebrations. Nearby the celebration square was a field that had a ravine and many gullies. On the evening of May 29, people who had heard rumours of coronation gifts from the Emperor (the gifts which everybody was to receive were a bread roll, a piece of sausage, pretzels, gingerbread, and a cup) began to gather in anticipation. At about 5 o'clock in the morning of the celebration day, several thousand people (according to American film historian Jay Leyda, estimates reached 500.000) were already gathered on the field. Suddenly a rumour spread among the people that there was not enough beer or pretzels for everybody. A police force of 1800 men failed to maintain civil order, and in a catastrophic crush and resulting panic to flee the scene, 1389 people were trampled to death, and roughly 1300 were otherwise injured.

Nicholas and Alexandra were informed about the tragedy, but not immediately. The new Emperor and his wife spent the remainder of the celebration day visiting people who had been hospitalized as a result of the stampede. A festive ball was to be held that night at the French Embassy to Russia. Nicholas thought it best not to attend, because it would make him appear he had no grief over the loss of his subjects. However, the younger brothers of Emperor Alexander III still wielded much influence over the court, and Nicholas's uncles said not attending the ball would be a slap in the face of Paris, which could be even worse for him than appearing uncaring about the Russian people. Despite the deaths, Nicholas attended the ball for diplomatic reasons. A large amount of government aid was given to the families of the dead, and a number of minor officials were dismissed. In the aftermath of the accident, the negligence of the imperial authorities caused further public indignation in Russia. Mystics had prophesied that Nicholas' refusal to decline the invitation to the coronation ball would lead to his doom. Russian poet Konstantin Balmont (1867-1942) wrote in 1905 that "Who started his reign with Khodynka, will finish it by mounting the scaffold".

Khodynka Aerodrome (officially Frunze Central Aerodrome) was an airport in Moscow, located 7 kilometres northwest of the centre of the city. It was founded in 1910 and was the only airport in the city until the opening of Vnukovo in 1941. The first flight in Russia took place at Khodynka, carried out in 1910 by Boris Rossinsky (1884-1977). In 1911, pilot Alexander Vasilyev landed his "Bleriot XI" there, becoming the only finisher of 11 pilots who started a 453-mile race from Saint Petersburg to Moscow. Starting in the 1930s, the airfield played annual host to Aviation Day festivities, held on the third weekend in August. Great Soviet aeronautical engineer Alexander Yakovlev (1906-1989) worked as a mechanic at the airfield for a time in the 1920s, and examined the wrecks of various aircraft present in the ravine near the field during work on his earliest powered aircraft designs. The airfield is surrounded by a variety of restricted-access facilities, including the main headquarters of "Aeroflot", design bureaus for "Ilyushin", "Mikoyan Gurevich" (MiG), "Sukhoi" and "Yakovlev", the 'Aircraft Production Organization No. 30" (MAPO), and GRU headquarters ("the Aquarium"). The National Aviation and Space Museum (aka the National Aeronautics Museum or the Museum of the Air Forces) was on the airfield proper. During the history of aerodrome, 108 aviators were killed at Khodynka Field as result of technical faults during test flights. On December 15, 1938 there was died great Russian pilot Valery Chkalov (1904-1938). Flights into or out of the airfield apparently continued to at least 1989, but the runways existed into the 2000s. Current plans for the site include a modern air and space museum, expected to be the largest in the world upon completion. The airfield is close to several Moscow Metro stations including "Dynamo" and "Aeroport" ("Airport") on the Line 2, and "Oktyabrskoye Pole" ("October Field") on the Line 7.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness hoped to have the largest temple in Russia to be erected there, but this did not come to pass due to vocal opposition by the Russian Orthodox Church. Megasport Arena (also known as Khodynka Arena), an ice sport palace, was opened on the Khodynka Field on December 15, 2006.

The decision to build Metro station "Khodynskoye Pole" was made according to the resolution of the city government on June 24, 2008. By that moment, there was built large residential area "Grand Park" near the Khodynka Field. "Khodynskoye Pole" will to serve residents of this residential area. In October 2011 were started geological researches near Metro station "Khodynskoye Pole". In November 2011 were started preliminary works at the construction site of the station. In April 2012 began construction of the foundation pit of future station. In July 2012 was started mounting of TBM "Yulia" ("Lovat"). On August 1, 2012 began construction of the right tunnel (total length - 6.5 km) between "Khodynskoye Pole" and Metro station "Delovoy Tsentr". By January 2013, were dug 0.5 km.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Orlov and Vadim Volovich. "Khodynskoye Pole" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type. There are planned to build two underground vestibules with two exits.

"PETROVSKY PARK"

"Petrovsky Park" is a future station of the Third Interchange Contour of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Leningrad Avenue and Theatre Alley, in the Aeroport District, Northern Administrative Okrug. "Petrovsky Park" will be have transfer to Metro station "Dynamo" on the Line 2 (opened on September 11, 1938).

The station is named after Petrovsky Park near which it will be located. Petrovsky Park (area - 22 hectares) is a landscaped park complex in the north-west of Moscow near the present-day Leningrad Avenue, the monument of landscape architecture of the 19th century. In 1775, after large festivity on Khodynka Field which was dedicated to the signing of the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca of 1774 with Ottoman Empire, Russian Empress Catherine the Great ordered to build stone palace at Petersburg Road. Petrovsky Palace or Castle ("St. Peter's Arrival Palace") was built in 1776-1780 by great Russian architect Matvey Kazakov (1738-1812) and was officially completed November 3, 1780 (though it is likely that construction continued for a few years afterwards). This palace was intended to be the last overnight station of royal journeys from St. Petersburg to Moscow. Catherine visited once, in 1785; Paul I abandoned it; Napoleon burned it down. The palace was restored in the 1830s and again in 1874 with minor alterations.

In 1827, during reconstruction of Moscow after Great Fire of 1812, it was decided to create large park at the territory near Petrovsky Palace. The supervisor of construction was Alexander Bashilov (1777-1847), the architect of park was Ivan Tamansky. Initially area of Petrovsky Park was 66 hectares. Since 1830s, Petrovsky Park became popular place of leisure of noble families. There were built summer theatres and restaurants. On April 6, 1899 near Petrovsky Park was opened terminal station of the first electric tramline in Moscow. In early Soviet years, water reservoirs were filled. The larger part of Petrovsky Park was used for construction of Dynamo Stadium (1927-1928), the first football stadium in Moscow.

"Dynamo" is a Moscow Metro station on the Line 2. It is located under Leningrad Avenue, and named after the nearby Dynamo Stadium. The station was opened on September 11, 1938 as part of the second stage of the Metro construction (1935-1938). The station is situated at the depth of 39.6 metres and follows a three-vaulted deep-level pylon design. Designed by Yakov Likhtenberg and Yury Revkovsky, the station features a sport-themed decoration with bas-reliefs designed by Yelena Yanson-Manizer depicting sportsmen in various practices in the vestibules and the central hall. The pylons, faced with red Tagilian marble and onyx have porcelain medallions also showing sportsmen. The walls are faced with onyx, white and grey marble, neately tiled together. The floor is reveted with pink and black granite, although the platforms were initially covered with asphalt. The station has two identical vestibules, each on the northern side of the Leningrad Avenue, and the architect for the vestibules was Dmitry Chechulin. The station daily passenger traffic is 52.500 although this is an annual average and is subject to heavy changes depending on events taking place at the nearby stadium.

The decision to build Metro station "Petrovsky Park" was made according to the resolution of city government on June 24, 2008. In December 2011 were started geological researches near Petrovsky Park. In February 2012 were started preliminary works at the construction site of the station. In March 2012 was started removal of communication utilities from the territory of construction. In September 2012 there began pile-drilling works, in November 2012 - ground works.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Orlov and Vadim Volovich. "Petrovsky Park" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type (depth - 28 metres). Its platform will be built along the Theatre Alley, perpendicular to Leningrad Avenue. The station will be built on two levels, with the platform on the lower level. The upper level will consist of two walkways which span the length of the platform.

"NIZHNYAYA MASLOVKA"

"Nizhnyaya Maslovka" is a future station of the Third Interchange Contour of the Moscow Metro. It will be built near the Lower Maslov Street and Butyrsky Rampart Street, at the border of the Savyolovsky District of the Northern Administrative Okrug and Butyrsky District of the North-Eastern Administrative Okrug. "Nizhnyaya Maslovka" will be have transfer to Metro station "Savyolovskaya" on the Line 9 (opened on December 31, 1988).

The station is named after Nizhnyaya Maslovka Street (Lower Maslov Street) near which it will be located. In the beginning of 20th century, this street was known as Butyrsky Driveway due to nearest Butyrsky Outpost Square. In 1886 there was built line of horse-drawn tram between Butyrskaya Outpost Square and Petrovsky Palace (Park), along the present-day Lower Maslov and Upper Maslov Streets. Later this line was electrified, and on April 6, 1899 at this route was launched first electric tramline in Moscow. The tramline operated during 100 years and was closed in 1999 due to construction of Third Transport Ring. The building of first depot of electric tram still exist at the intersection of the Lower Maslov Street and New Bashilov Street.

"Savyolovskaya" is a station on Line 9 of the Moscow Metro. It was opened on December 31, 1988 and had been the northern terminus of the line until its extension in 1991. Its depth is 52 m. Its entrance vestibule is located on the Square of the Savyolovo Rail Terminal (hence the name of the station), thus it is quite busy providing transfer to commuter trains serving numerous destinations to the north of Moscow. The architects of Metro station "Savyolovskaya" are Nikolay Shumakov and Natalya Shurygina. The station hall is faced with white and grey marble and the floor is reveted with grey granite. The track walls are adorned with mosaic splint-styled panels depicting the development of the railway transport in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century.

The decision to build Metro station "Nizhnyaya Maslovka" was made according to the resolution of the city government on June 24, 2008. In November 2011 were started geological researches near Metro station "Nizhnyaya Maslovka". In May 2012 were started preliminary works at the construction site of the station.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Orlov and Vadim Volovich. "Nizhnyaya Maslovka" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of pylon type (depth - 65 metres). Its platform will be built along the Third Transport Ring. The station will be have two vestibules and two exits.

THE NORTHERN EXTENSION OF THE LINE 10

According to existing plans, Dmitrovsky Radius of the Line 10 with six new stations (total length - 10.3 km) is scheduled to be opened in 2014. However, currently these plans look unrealistic. The matter is that major part of this radius is planned to be built deep-level. It will increase the cost and terms of the construction. In addition, Metro builders faced with big level of groundwaters during construction of the future stations of this radius. Currently construction of the tunnels between stations is not started yet. This segment is the most laggard in the development program of the Moscow Metro. Given all this, I can make a prediction that Dmitrov radius will not open in 2014. More likely, in order to accelerate its construction, some station will be shallow and some stations will be missed. Nevertheless, I would suggest that in 2015 will be opened half of the planned stations, but even this prediction looks too optimistic.

"BUTYRSKAYA"

"Butyrskaya" is a future station of the Line 10 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Ogorodny Driveway and Rustaveli Street, in the Butyrsky District, North-Eastern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after Butyrsky District in which it will be located. The village of Butyrka is known since 14th century. It belonged to Romanov noble family (since 17th century - Imperial dynasty). In ancient times, word "butyrka" meant small settlement, separated from the town by forest or by field. In 1667 the village of Butyrka was given for the settlement of the soldiers of Butyrsky Regiment, the oldest regiment in Russia. In 1767 Butyrskaya soldier settlement was included into city boundaries. After Patriotic War of 1812, it became cottage settlement. On December 15, 1865 there was founded Petrovskaya Agricultural Academy (now Moscow Agricultural Academy named after Kliment Timiryazev). On July 29, 1886 in Moscow was opened first line of steam-driven tram - between the Butyrskaya Outpost Square (near present-day Savyolovo Rail Terminal) and Petrovskaya Agricultural Academy. On April 6, 1899 in Moscow was opened first electric tramline - between Butyrskaya Outpost Square and Petrovsky Palace, along the present-day Lower Maslov Street and Upper Maslov Street. On March 23, 1902 was opened Butyrsky Rail Terminal (now Savyolovo Rail Terminal). After the end of Second World War, in this district began construction of low-rise living houses. On November 20, 2004 there were opened two stations of Moscow Monorail Transit System in the Butyrsky District.

In December 2010 were started geological researches near Metro station "Butyrskaya". In May 2011 were started preparation works at the construction site of station. In July 2011 began construction of tunnels from the station "Maryina Roshcha" ("Mary's Grove") in direction to "Butyrskaya", these works were held by drilling and blasting method. In November 2011 was started removal of communication utilities from the territory of construction. In the spring of 2012 began construction of the foundation pit of the station.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun and Vladimir Filippov. "Butyrskya" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of pylon type. The track walls will be lined with aluminum panels, the pylons will be faced with marble "Black-And-Gold", while the floor will be paved with granite. The station will be have two vestibules which will be built under Ogorodny Driveway and connected with platform via escalators. Both vestibules will be linked with underpasses under the Ogorodny Driveway.

"FONVIZINSKAYA"

"Fonvizinskaya" ("Denis Fonvizin") is a future station of the Line 10 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the Milashenkov Street and Monorail station "Ulitsa Milashenkova" ("Milashenkov Street"), in the Butyrsky District, North-Eastern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after Fonvizin Street near which it will be located. This street was named in 1958 in the honour of famous Russian writer Denis Fonvizin (1745-1792). Denis Fonvizin (from German: von Wiesen) was a playwright of the Russian Enlightenment, whose plays are still staged today. His main works are two satirical comedies which mock contemporary Russian gentry. Both comedies are plays of social satire with definite axes to grind. "The Brigadier-General" (1768) is a satire against the fashionable French semi-education of the petits-maîtres. It is full of excellent fun, and though less serious than "The Minor", it is better constructed. But "The Minor" (1782), though imperfect in dramatic construction, is a more remarkable work and justly considered Fonvizin's masterpiece. The point of the satire in "The Minor" is directed against the brutish and selfish crudeness and barbarity of the uneducated country gentry. The central character, Mitrofanushka, is the accomplished type of vulgar and brutal selfishness, unredeemed by a single human feature - even his fondly doting mother gets nothing from him for her pains. The dialogue of these vicious characters (in contrast to the stilted language of the lovers and their virtuous uncles) is true to life and finely individualized; and they are all masterpieces of characterization - a worthy introduction to the great portrait gallery of Russian fiction. As a measure of its popularity, several expressions from "The Minor" have been turned into proverbs, and many authors (amongst whom Alexander Pushkin) regularly cite from this play, or at least hint to it by mentioning the characters' names.

In March 2011 were started geological researches near Metro station "Fonvizinskaya". In July 2011 began construction of the station.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun and Vladimir Filippov. "Fonvizinskaya" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of pylon type. The track walls will be lined with aluminum panels, the pylons will be faced with red marble "Rosso Francia", while the floor will be paved with granite. The station will be have two vestibules. The one vestibule will be built near the confluence of the Milashenkov Street, Fonvizin Street, Dobrolyubov Street and Ogorodny Driveway. The other vestibule will be built near houses #6 and #7 at the Milashenkov Street.

"PETROVSKO-RAZUMOVSKAYA"

"Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" is a future station of Line 10 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the Dmitrov Highway and rail station "Petrovsko-Razumovskoye", in the Timiryazevsky District, Northern Administrative Okrug. It will be have transfer to Metro station "Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" on the Line 9 (opened on March 1, 1991). After comissioning, it will be sixth stations within the Moscow Metro network providing cross-platform interchange (besides "Kitay-gorod", "Tretyakovskaya", "Kashirskaya", "Kuntsevskaya" and "Park Pobedy").

The station is named after former settlement at the territory of which it will be located. The settlement of Petrovsko-Razumovskoye was firstly mentioned in 1584. In 16th century it was known as Semchino. In 1676 nobleman Kirill Naryshkin (1623-1691) became owner of the village of Semchino. Kirill Naryshkin was maternal grandfather of Russian Emperor Peter the Great (1672-1725). More likely, in 1682 this village became known as Semchino-Petrovskoye in the honour of Russian Tsar and future Emperor Peter I. According to less popular version, this name was derived from Sts. Peter and Paul Church. In 1746 this settlement became ownership of Russian Count Kirill Razumovsky (1728-1803) and became known as Petrovsko-Razumovskoye. During Patriotic War of 1812, in Petrovsko-Razumovskoye settled French Cavalry Army of Marshal Michel Ney (1769-1815). As result, the settlement was looted and church was desecrated. In January 1861 city authorities bought estate of Petrovsko-Razumovskoye, and on December 15, 1865 there was opened Petrovskaya Agricultural Academy (now Moscow Agricultural Academy named after Kliment Timiryazev). On July 29, 1886 in Moscow was opened first line of steam-driven tram - between the Butyrskaya Outpost Square (near present-day Savyolovo Rail Terminal) and Petrovskaya Agricultural Academy. In 1917 the settlement of Petrovsko-Razumovskoye was included into city boundaries. Since 1954 there began mass construction of the living houses in this area.

"Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" is a Moscow Metro station on the Line 9, between "Vladykino" and "Timiryazevskaya" stations. It was opened on March 1, 1991 as a part of major northern extension of the line. "Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" has exits to Dmitrov Highway and the "Petrovsko-Razumovskoye" platform of the October Railway. The station provides transfer to commuter trains serving destinations to the north of Moscow. The daily passenger flow is about 80.000. "Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" is a deep-level three-vaulted station of the column type (depth - 61 metres). The station was built to make a future cross-platform transfer point with the Line 10. Only a half of the complex has been built by now. The architects of this station are Vladimir Filippov and S. Sevastyanov. The ground-level vestibule and the escalator hall feature stained-glass windows by Zurab Tsereteli. The vestibule walls are made of red brick; the station columns and track walls are faced with white and gray marble. The end of the hall features vases with flowers made of plaster. The floor is paved with dark granite.

In the early-1990s, during the construction of this station, there were built so-called "pilot tunnels" for the planned eponymous station of the Line 10. Since July 2011 began construction of the tunnels in direction to future "Okruzhnaya" station, these works are held by drilling and blasting method. In March 2012 began construction of the northern vestibule. In May 2012 began construction of the southern vestibule and northern escalator tunnel.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun and Vladimir Filippov. "Petrovsko-Razumovskaya" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of the column-wall type. The track walls will be lined with aluminum panels, the columns will be faced with marble, while the floor will be paved with granite. The old vestibule will be reconstructed and replaced with new one, common for both stations. In addition, there will be built new southern vestibule. It will be linked with underpass with four exits at the both sides of Dmitrov Highway.

Are all these new extensions underground? Its' unusual to see a metro system almost completely underground even in outer, less densely built areas of the city.

Yes. The experience of the construction of the ground-level Metro stations in late-1950 and 1960s (like stations of the Filyovskaya Line 4) clearly showed: although construction of these stations is simplier, cheaper and faster, it will lead to the constant problems in the future (especially in the harsh climatic conditions).

Tunnels do have the advantage of being immune to weather conditions, so it may be I wise choice. Personally, I prefer to see the daylight once in a while, though.

They certainly don't build metros on the cheap in Moscow, and not just with regards to tunnel vs surface. The number of new extensions is impressive, the capacity and size of stations seem plentiful, and decor is also a priority.

I wonder when the Kazan Aeroexpress will open.

On 28 Dec, RZD issued a press release saying both the downtown terminal and the airport rail terminal were complete:

http://press.rzd.ru/news/public/pres...=4065&id=81437

However on 10 Jan, it was reported that a construction worker was injured after falling 5 meters at the airport rail terminal, resulting in a criminal investigation:

In Russia, there is difference between official opening with participation of high-rank officials (de-jure) and real opening for ordinary passengers (de-facto).

According to official site of Aeroexpress company, real opening was not happened last year:

‘Stalin buses’ to mark 70th anniversary of Battle of Stalingrad in Russia

Published: 31 January, 2013, 13:37
Edited: 31 January, 2013, 18:16

Public buses bearing portraits of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin will appear on the streets of several Russian cities on February 2 – the 70th anniversary of the Red Army’s victory in the Battle of Stalingrad.
Dubbed ‘Victory Bus,’ the initiative was organized through private donations and the support of Russia’s Communist party (KPRF) and several other public organizations.

In the city of Volgograd (formerly known as Stalingrad) five mini-buses with the portrait of the Soviet leader will operate until May 9, when Russia celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II.

In Russia’s Northern capital, St. Petersburg, a free bus will circulate though the city’s center on February 2. Citizens of Chita in Eastern Siberia will also have a chance to ride on the so-called ‘Stalinobus’.
All of the vehicles belong to private transport companies, ‘Victory Bus’ coordinator Aleksey Roerich told Izvestia daily.

The initiative has already sparked criticism from rights activists, politicians and nationalists. However, the organizers are confident that the action is completely legal.

“We don’t paint swastikas. Thank God, Communist ideology and Stalin’s image have not been officially condemned. We only urge the preservation of memory of the WWII victory and people who contributed to it,” Izvestia quoted ‘Victory Bus’ organizers as saying.

Meanwhile, Sergey Mitrokhin, the head of Russia’s liberal political party Yabloko, vowed that party activists will paint over the portraits of Stalin, as they did when a similar ‘Victory Bus’ action was held in 2011. In Mitrokhin’s opinion, World War II could have been avoided if not for “Stalin’s idiotic policy and his friendship with Adolph Hitler,” as a result of which the Soviet leader “had overlooked the attack on the Soviet Union.”
Vitaly Milonov, a member of the ruling United Russia party, said he wished he could ban the initiative outright, and that Russia’s victory in World War II had been earned “by people’s blood, but not Stalin’s.”

The Presidential Council for Human Rights said it would “harshly react” to the initiative, and vowed to file complaints with regional governors, who are also displeased with the plan, Izvestia reported.

Stalingrad returns to Russia’s map

Volgograd lawmakers have decided to restore their city’s previous name: Stalingrad (‘City of Stalin’). However, the name will only be used symbolically, and on days when historic events related to World War II are observed. The anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad on February 2 will be the first time the old name is used in the Southern Russian city.

The city parliament’s deputies said they made the decision in response to multiple requests from the veterans of the Great Patriotic War (World War II). They deputies explained that there is no connection between the move and an initiative by the Communist party to restore the city’s Soviet-era name, Interfax reported.

Meanwhile, Russia's human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin blasted the Volgograd’s legislators’ explanation as “demagogical” and added that the initiative is “an insult” to those fallen in battle. He noted that they certainly deserve to be honored, but in a different way.

On Thursday, the St. Petersburg branch of movement Russkiy Lad (‘Russian Order’), which was founded by the Communist party, published an appeal to the country’s political leadership and the head of the Orthodox Church that Volgograd be renamed as it is “remembered by mankind.” Citing polls, they claimed that about 100 million Russians support renaming the city Stalingrad.

Founded in 1589 and originally named Tsaritsyn, Volgograd was renamed after Joseph Stalin in 1925. Its name was changed to its current incarnation in 1961 by then-leader of the USSR Nikita Khrushchev.
The modern Communist party called the 1961 name change an “anti-historic” step, one that harmed both for the prestige of the country and the “patriotic upbringing of the youth.”

“I’m confident that justice will prevail! There are streets, squares, and boulevards named after Stalingrad almost in all the counties in the world. That’s why it’d be fair to return to Volgograd its true name: Stalingrad,” Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov said.

The Battle of Stalingrad was the turning point in World War II, and consequently led to the defeat of the Nazi army. The conflict lasted between August 1942 and February 2, 1943, claiming the lives of nearly 2 million people on both sides.

On Saturday, 70 years after the end of the epic battle, a military parade will be held in Volgograd. The 650-person march will be lead by a legendary T-34 Soviet tank.
