“It seems ridiculous, but people buy such housing, and it's actually very popular. There's a niche for such housing.”

- Igor Shuvalov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

Meduza reports that on an official visit to Kazan last week, 'Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov was taken on a tour of new economy-class apartments now under construction. In particular, he was shown a 20-square-meter (215-square-foot) apartment. He later told journalists that he was amused to learn people actually buy such homes.' Meduza points out that 'Shuvalov rents a 1,500-square-meter (16,145-square-foot) house in Austria and a luxury apartment in Great Britain.'
