Moscow to Double in Size to Solve Congestion Problems

I love that soviet architecture!

Russian officials have announced plans to more than double Moscow's territory in a bid to alleviate the city's crippling traffic and overcrowding, but critics worry the move could prove to be an environmental fiasco and leave thousands displaced.

It seems nobody gave Russia the memo that sprawl is out and density is in. They are moving all the government buildings and offices into the new expanded region to kick start it. It would seem that while Russia’s population declines, Moscow’s grows. I wonder how long their oil supplies will last.
