MOSCOW, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. A group of vandals painted blue a star on top of one of Moscow skyscrapers and hung a yellow and blue flag on the skyscraper on the Kotelnicheskaya embankment last night. Moscow police have detained four suspects and brought them to a nearby police station.
The suspect — two young men and two women, claim that they jumped from the skyscraper on parachutes. They denied painting the star blue or hanging any flags on the building. The suspects face a criminal prosecution on charges of vandalism.
The skyscraper on the Kotelnicheskaya embankment is a 26-story residential block in the mouth of the Yauza river. The building, which is 176 meters high, is one of the Moscow skyscrapers built in the city in 1938-1952 known in Russia as a Stalinist epoch.
A district investigative department has opened a criminal case into an act of vandalism staged on the building on Kotelnicheskaya embankment in Moscow on charges of vandalism punished by the Russian Criminal Code, a source from Moscow police told ITAR-TASS Wednesday.
