Russia has introduced legislation to take effect next month that will increase the maximum penalty for destruction of or damage to cultural monuments to $20 million. This is a vast increase from the previous fine of $1,200. The new legislation is designed to keep developers from doing things like undertaking renovation projects which result in the demolition of protected sections of monuments .

A Kremlin spokesman said: “It’s because we were pissed off about the limited penalty at Priddy.” *

(* That last bit might not be entirely true, but could be.)
