Moscow will be compared to New York

Looks as if the fairly new Moscow mayor has some big news for the city.
http://www.dni.ru/society/2011/9/7/218401.html

Will be interesting to see in which direction Russia goes next year, will putin take the election assuming he will run? They have to host the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi and the world cup in 2018

Re: Moscow will be compared to New York

I would have thought St Petersburg would have twinned more naturally with New York.

Re: Moscow will be compared to New York

Moscow will never be comparable to New York. Shanghai might, if it isn't already.

Moscow should be content to be the Third Rome.

Frankly, the New York economy is a pack of cards to an even greater extent than that of the US as a whole.

Frankly, it is insulting to the Russians to compare their capital to a declining port city.

The mayor of Moscow didn't seem to think so. From the article:

Мэр убежден в огромном потенциале Москвы, который позволит ей в будущем встать в один ряд с такими мегаполисами, как Нью-Йорк, Токио, Лондон и Париж.

"The mayor believes in the huge potential of Moscow, which will allow it in the future to stand on a par with such megalopolises as New York, Tokyo, London and Paris."

Well Paris is lovely, but economically, it is a quaint backwater. New York will be soon be the same without the quaint. Tokyo will soon play third or forth fiddle to Chinese centres.

Seems to me that perhaps he is not being that ambitious.
