Also a special impetus to the issue of preserving the building served as the "Gazprom-City". Activists want to holiday together with citizens to solve the problem of a museum on the Cape and to preserve the archaeological complex. Also, there are plans to appeal to the deputy Alexei Kovalev for support.

    At the federal level, this problem has already been moved from their seats. Convention provides for the task - determining the sites and areas of interest to archeology, creation of sanctuaries for learning and ensuring control and safety results of the excavations.

    Ratification of this document, in the opinion of experts in the field of archeology, not only will save the objects of antiques throughout Russia from barbarism, but also give an opportunity to create reserves and museums. Now we can say that "Gazprom" will give land to the state, for the preservation of the complex.
