Page move[edit]

I suggest page move to List of tallest structures in the former Soviet Union, because there is no special building content to reflect it in name of article (and building is structure). --Jklamo (talk) 11:23, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Designation of TV masts with crossbars[edit]

What is the official Russian designation of the TV masts with crossbars? Who designed and constructed them?

Coordinates missing[edit]

Add missing coordinates please! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.46.204.252 (talk) 20:51, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

purpose[edit]

The intro says the article is "an incomplete list of the tallest structures that are situated on the territories of the former Soviet Union." So it's supposed to serve not as a list of what was built in the Soviet Union, but as a comparison of what was built then and what was built ever since.

This seems either anachronistic, or it's treating the former Soviet Union as a present-day geographic unit, rather than historical/political. The problem with the latter is that it overlaps with existing list for Europe (and there is no list for Asia).

Perhaps a better question is - is this a common theme among people who analyze building height, IOW do buildings from the countries created after the collapse of the Soviet Union commonly get compared to other such buildings? Is it common to expect people to compare building heights between e.g. Kiev and Irkutsk?

If this is not common, then this looks like a clear violation of WP:SYNTH. It could easily stop being so if the list was limited to buildings actually built during the existence of the Soviet Union. (That's how I changed the list for former Yugoslavia that suffered from an analogous problem.) --Joy [shallot] (talk) 09:40, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
