Back in USSR

Remember, I posted a photo of Moscow University last week? Now compare that to Triumph Palace presented in this picture. Same Empire style, isn't it? Well, you might be suprised to find out that Triumph Palace was built in last few years (I believe, some construction works are still going on), so it's a 'brend new' one. What made architects imitate Stalin's Era, I don't have a slightest clue. May be, some kind of nostalgia for Soviet Union?
