Moscow (CNN) – A century of revolution and regime change has scarred the Moscow skyline, and left its people struggling to define their cultural identity.

The soviets systematically destroyed or gutted much of the old tsarist architecture, but after the fall of communism the new government gave orders for some key elements to be restored.

Since then, the trend of restoring Moscow’s pre-soviet heritage has taken root, and has captured the imagination of both architects and muscovites in general. CNN's Richard Quest explores huge restoration projects in some of Moscow’s most iconic buildings, including a rare look inside the Kremlin.

    Could not find "Contact us"
    Thanks for reporting very short clip about the slaughter of Christians in Egypt. If this incident was for a missing puppy, you will follow up on that story until the puppy is found. How about tens of murdered and slaughtered, hundreds of injured and crippled Christian youth in a GENOCIDE and ELIMINATION process (in small steps) of MILLIONS of Christians in Egypt and the Middle East, we did not hear any follow up, analysis, and statistics from your broadcasting station about these DAILY incidents.
    Guess what, do not think that these incidents are far away from USA It is coming, and coming soon in our beloved land … Muslims are establishing their bases until they gain strength then they will rise and take over our land … Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated our White House and USA Government system. PLEASE study the history of Islamic Conquests.
    We ask you to investigate independently, away from the biased and misguided Egyptian media, TV, and news broadcasting that is controlled by the screwed-up Military Government guided by Muslim Brotherhood. Human rights are Non-existent, Christians are in REAL Danger … please EXPOSE these CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES AGAIST HUMANITY in this region, and keep it in the SPOT LIGHT for as long as you can.
    All troubles in the world are found where Islam is … Islam is NOT a religion but political movement dressed in religion robe.
