8 Neighbour of the President

Neighbour of the President

Posted on December 15, 2011 by


A few people know that just a few meters from the Kremlin near the Sofia Embarkment and behind the pompous buildings of the Russian Oil Giant, is a privately owned house. The house belongs to a one Mr. Victor Anatolevich Rozanov. One of Moscow's central home owners and the direct neighbour of the Kremlin.

Victor, a Professor with the Institute named after Baumann, is a 73 year old man who has lived in this house with his family since birth. He currently lives there with his wife. He briefly talks about his home, the history that sorrounds it, its odds among other twists and turns.

Victor, cheerful in his early seventies looks even younger. He says he has spent a better half of his life fighting for his home. The first attempt to evict him took place 40 years ago leaving him with a strong will for securing his home from intruders. He proudly says,  "My house is my Castle."

A view of the  Kremlin from his roof. You can tell the time of the day by looking at the Tower of the Saviour.

    This mans story is pure awesomeness.

    His house sits on a tiny piece of land. They should just leave him alone. One would be surprised at all the junky buildings and vacant lots nearby the Kremlin.

    We have a saying in America: “You can’t fight city hall.” Well this guy sure did. Bravo.

      In America there’s no freedom. Things are super controlled and dominated by some. This guy show us that in Russia there’s more democracy then in USa.

        If you say so Pedro… sounds like you’ve lived it and really know what you are talking about. The odd American has never fought city hall and won like this lone Russian guy. lol

        BTW every last one of us is fat too! ;)

    “In 1941 when the war broke…” – sooooo untrue! WW2 started on Sep 01, 1939 with Germany invading Poland. Shortly after, on Sep 17, Soviets invaded the eastern part of Poland and quickly advanced, effectively tearing the victim country in two.
