The building may be recognized as dangerous.

State Duma Deputy Chairman Igor Lebedev posted a video on his Twitter with voids found under the building of the lower house of parliament on Okhotny Ryad Street in Moscow. According to him, this indicates an emergency state of the building.

“The building of the State Duma can be recognized as dangerous at any time. The foundation has fallen into disrepair, numerous voids have formed in it,” Lebedev wrote.

Chairman of the Duma Committee on Physical Culture, Sport, Tourism and Youth Affairs, Mikhail Degtyarev, supported Lebedev’s fears and expressed concern that the building might “finally cave in” at a Duma meeting on Tuesday, May 21.

State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin stated in response that “everything is being done” to underpin the building. He advised Degtyarev, who, like Lebedev, is a member of the Liberal Democratic Party, to tackle this issue at a faction meeting.

According to TASS, the renovation of the Duma building was scheduled for this summer.
