Moscow's giant billboard dilemma

Many apartment buildings left in the dark by huge signs posted in Russian capital.

    Many of Moscow's historic buildings are being damaged by massive advertising billboards.   

    Entire blocks of apartment buildings are being left in the dark by the imposing signs.

    Most are believed to be illegal, but it seems nobody is doing anything to solve the problem.
