Sverdlovsk property authority oversees removal of illegal ads in Yekaterinburg

The Sverdlovsk regional Ministry of Public Property announced on Wednesday that it has supervised the removal of advertisements that were posted illegally on several historic buildings in Yekaterinburg.

Removal crews targeted a series of billboards first installed in the 1950s on a series of historic buildings on Sverdlovsk street, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Next, the team removed a handful of banners on properties that were also placed on the cultural heritage list, including the Urarov Tenement Building, Simanova House, The Merchants Yakolev House and the Merchant V.N. Ivanov House.

Current Russian law dictates that future attempts to place billboards or banners on buildings registered on the cultural heritage list will result in fines ranging from $50 to as much as $150,000, Ural Business Consulting reports.
