Land for Russian construction queen’s "Martian City" seized
TheMoscowNews.com reports that land controlled by Russian construction queen Elena Baturina and slated for development of her 700,000 square meter “Martian City” has been confiscated by the local government. Apparently, Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and whose husband was replaced recently as mayor of Moscow, is the subject of a wide-ranging criminal investigation.
