Ancient dynasty loses claim to Moscow Kremlin

10:34 04/10/2011

MOSCOW, October 4 - RAPSI, Alyona Bychkova. A court upheld on Monday the decision to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Fund of Assistance to the National and Religious Consent of Princes to recognize its rights to the Moscow Kremlin, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reported from the courtroom.

The Moscow District Federal Commercial Court dismissed the fund's cassation appeal against the Moscow Commercial Court's December 2010 judgment and the appeals court decision to uphold it.

The fund's chief Valery Kubarev claimed in court that he is a descendant of the Rurik Dynasty, which he believes entitles him to the Kremlin's unlimited use.

The Russian government, Culture Ministry and Federal Agency for State Property Management were defendants in the case. The presidential administrative department, Federal Protective Service and Moscow Kremlin museum-preserve were involved as third parties.

According to the agency's counsel the Kremlin has been the Russian Federation property since 1991 and the funds lawsuit was unfounded.

Kubarev commented to journalists that the fund does not claim the Kremlin for ownership, but just wants "to look after the monument."

The Rurik Dynasty, Kievan Rus Prince Igors descendants, ruled the country until the late 16th century.
