Yekaterinburg's Factory Kitchen UZTM proposed as cultural heritage site

Sverdlovsk Regional Minister for State Property Alexei P'yankov introduced a draft resolution to include Yekaterinburg's Factory Kitchen UZTM in the national list of cultural heritage sites during a meeting of the regional government on Friday.

Situated at 3 Red Partisans Street, Factory Kitchen UZTM was built in 1935 by Sverdlovsk architect Valery Paramonov, a graduate of the German School of Architecture, MidUral.ru reports.

"The building is a shining example of architectural constructivism of the 1930's," P'yankov said, according to MidUral.ru. "In relation to this property, a historical and cultural examination was conducted by the state, the output of which is unambiguous-- the object has the appearance of cultural heritage and worthy of inclusion in the register of monuments of history and culture."

Upon taking office in 2012, Sverdlovsk Governor Yevgeny Kuyvashev issued directives to strengthen measures aimed at preserving cultural heritage sites in the region. In the last two years, 26 new sites in the Sverdlovsk have been added to the national registry, of which 13 receive state protection, MidUral.ru reports.
