Perspectives for this forest and pond are to become the part of Moscow soon, though at a moment they are located 30 km (18 miles) away from the city.

In June 2011 the President of Russia announced the idea to expand the city borders and to create "capital federal district".

On July, 11th new Moscow mayor Sobjanin and the governor of Moscow suburbs Gromov presented the preliminary plan of expansion of borders of capital. The total area will cover  160 hectares (395 acres), the city will become twice bigger.

The plan provides the addition of the territory limited from two sides by the Warsaw and Kiev highway, and with the third - the big ring railway.

The aim of the project is to move the government structures out of the city center and to solve the problem of traffic jams.

Looks like I will have much more opportunities for daily photographing soon.
