New Island in Russia

New Island in Russia near Sochi 1

It seems like Russia (which is the biggest country in the world) tries to compete with Dubai (United Arab Emirates) in unique construction projects. Before the building of artificial skiing resort had been finished (the similar one stands in UAE), Russian government has presented to the public the model of artificial island that will be raised from the Black Sea waters near Sochi coast in 2014, towards the opening of the Olympic Games. It is no no wonder that the island will be called "The Federation" - its shape will resemble the whole country in miniature.

    Good point. But it is the investors and tenants who will get soaked. The developers will be high and dry and richer.

    Wow! – hhat should certainly put russia back on the map.

  15. Dungeonbrownies says:

    Honestly, i dont think its possible for them to finish that by 2014…

    • D says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Especially with all the other projects in the area at the same time. And to maintain it is just as hard as building it. It needs to be dredged all the time for something like this to not get washed away.

  16. John from Kansas says:

    LOL.

  17. John from Kansas says:

    …”hypocritical pseudopatriotic kleptocracy”. Man does that ever sound familiar.

    • John from Kansas says:

      Write your congressional representatives. I alredy have.

      • John from Kansas says:

        Mine won’t support it. We still have Republicans…for now.

        • John from Kansas says:

          On some issues there is little differece. On balance I prefer Democrats because they tend not to hurt working people as badly as the Republicans do. The neo-cons have boxed us in on this one. Bush/Cheney can’t do anything else but stay the course because no one will help them anymore. I am not enthused about Hillary Clinton, but I would think that any new Democratic administration should have the latitude to lay out a new Middle-East policy. A policy that garners real international support for a structured peace in the region. It’s a tall order because too many people are makng money off this war.

          John From Kansas,

          Internet Tax
          Every Democratic State is in the Red!
          Drive through Detroit and see what Democrats did…

  18. John from Kansas says:

    Boris, is that dry humor Russian, or is it aquired in the U.K.?

  19. Boris Abramov says:

    “A special law was passed that allows the government to steal their land from whoever they damn please” – how exactly are they “stealing” their land? What are you talkng about? Prove it!

  20. chaosgone says:

    That place looks cool! :)

  21. D says:

    In America, the government is allowed to take any land it pleases at anytime, for any reason. And they give you what “they think” the land is worth at the time. Its been done already…recently fought in the supreme court…and upheld. So Russia is not doing anything that the free and democratic america isnt also doing. Stop complaining. At least you dont live in a third world country….your country at least has the money to build and make this resort town better for many years to come. O and my tax money is funding the war in Iraq right now…not by my choice either.

    ummm global warming …. our lifetime? just how long are u planning on living? currently the sea level is rising roughly 3mm (some studies say 0.07mm)a year with an acceleration of 0.0013mm (therefore 100 years = less then a foot)…. so maybe your great great grandchildren may be priviaged enough to see the planned structures be demolished, the island reformed and new structures built.

  24. Alex says:

    Ah, another Kommersant reader. In the U.S. its called the Law of Iminent Domain. Where the law formerly required such developments to be for public usage (roads, airports etc), the Republicans are pushing state-by-state amendments to allow for comercial developement, ie. you can be forced out to make way for another Wal-Mart.
