Russian parliamentary majority party United Russia has asked its leader, PM Dmitry Medvedev, to block a plan to erect residential buildings on plots of land in Moscow that are used for research by the Timiryazev Agriculture Academy.

“We are concerned about the situation unfolding around the Timiryazev Academy. The decision to exchange part of its experimental land plots for monetary support has caused disagreement among the academy’s students and professors,” the secretary of United Russia’s General Council, Sergey Neverov, said during the party’s educational forum.
