Metro Workers Protest

MOSCOW () -- Employees of Metrostroi, a group involved in the construction of the Moscow subway, demonstrated near the government house Thursday, Interfax reported.

About 200 workers participated in the demonstration, according to the agency. They urged the government to step in to alleviate the poor financial situation of Metrostroi, which they said is "on the threshold of ruin."

The demonstration came just a day after an article in Moskovsky Komsomolets described a slew of developments and expansions planned for the city's metro system.
