Kashirskoye Highway or Kashira Highway (Russian: Каширское шоссе, Kashirskoye Shosse) is a major street in Moscow, Russia, continued as a highway beyond the city into Moscow Oblast as a backup route for highway M4. It was named in the 19th century after the old Kashira Road, which led to the town of Kashira.[1] It was one of the sites of the Russian apartment bombings of 1999. Along the road, major landmarks include the Saburovo Church and the Orekhovo-Borisovo Cathedral.
