Eiffel Tower in Russia may get destroyed

  • The Shabolovka radio tower in Russia has been called a masterpiece of design but it may soon disappear since the country's State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting has agreed to dismantle it. 

    The 50-story cone, also known as the Shukov Tower was kept shorter than the Eiffel due to a shortage of materials. Reports suggest that it's also located in an area, which is not accessible by tourists. 

    Some have suggested that moving the design would be a good idea but defenders mentioned that the town around it is important.
