The famous architectural bureau Coop Himmelblau is taking part in the construction of the opera theatre in Sevastopol. It was reported by Ambassador of Ukraine in Austria Aleksandr Shcherba. 

‘For some time, the rumors about the involvement of the architectural bureau Coop Himmelblau in Putin’s flagship project in Crimea, i.e. the opera theatre construction, have been spread. In the beginning of October, I called to the bureau and talked with Wolf Prix, trying to reassure him not to spoil his reputation by the involvement in that indirect and, at the same time, well-defined annexation legitimization. Unfortunately, he would not give credence to my arguments. At present, when the rumors are actively supported by the Russian mass media, I have no choice but to express my condolences and inform architect Prix Ukraine is seriously studying the problem of the introduction of the sanctions against him and his bureau. Our partners from all over the world will be informed that the architectural bureau, which once was a respectable company, is concluding the dubious deals with Putin at the moment’, the Ambassador reported on his Facebook page.
