Let me make sure I understand this proposal... This fund wants naive Americans to donate money for the restoration of manors that were stolen?  Maybe if the properties were given back to the families who own them, then they could get restored!

Jacqueline,

I'm looking eyes to eyes with you (restitution ndlr)but what concerns this fund of Mrs Roosevelt they vould not be presented as naive,they are are a non profit association who only aims at promoting russian culture by restoration of russian architecture smasterpieces taht often fall in ruins  in view of the lack of state funds...

We could thanks them among others for the restoration of Arkhangelskoye(prince's Youssoupov palace) and Isnaia Poliana(Tolstoi's field)...I hope however that some russian association folow into Rosevel's foots steps...

Спасибо Joanna!
Я отдала изучению Русской усадьбы 12 лет, и написала несколько книг на эту тему... Судьба их, к сожалению, весьма трагична!

      Archeologists will work on the site of the presently lost gardens, yards and other objects of the 17th century. Here they intend to restore the historical monument “Strokinskoe Fortification” and carry out all necessary restoration works in Izmailovo Island. The city authorities also plan to reconstruct alleys of Vladimir highway and set up 19th century road signs on it.
     
      As preventive measures, railings will be set up over the distance of 30 thousand meters, and decorative protective plantations will be restored along the road and the park boundaries. "

I can't wait to see this church restored!  I've long thought it was one of the greatest architectural losses of Moscow.  My understanding is that there is a park there now which is named for the architect of the church.  The Soviets admired his great skill, but destroyed his masterpiece because it was a religious structure.  I guess honoring an architect by destroying his work but memorializing his name made sense in Communist Russia. 

Thanks for the great news, Vassia!  Keep us posted, please.
