Moscow’s help for the homeless expands ‘out of sight’

Russia’s Lyublino homeless shelter in Moscow is providing relief from Russia’s bitter winter with 1,000 beds, two heated shelters and 474 employees. It’s a symbol of efforts made by Moscow to help the homeless – provided they are kept away from the city centre. While NGOs applaud the progress that’s being made, they criticise the stigmatising of a population forced to endure extreme conditions and live on the margins of society.
