One of the Kremlin's wall teeth on the Red Square collapsed following heavy winds which hit the Russian capital Moscow.


The Red Square was temporarily closed due to safety measures.

The collapse occurred because of the scaffolding which was installed in the area.

It was used to repair the tomb of the Soviet Union’s founder Vladimir Lenin.

According to the latest information there are no victims and no one received injuries.

The winds that affected the accident were as strong as 20 mph.

The Red Square is the most visited location in Russia due to its rich history as it contains many historical locations.

This is not the first case when heavy winds damage the Kremlin as back in 1998 several wall battlements were damaged due to similar reasons.
