MOSCOW, July 27 - RAPSI. The Moscow Commercial Court postponed on Friday until August 24 its hearing of the Arkhangelskoye estate museum's lawsuit against the Defense Ministry, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency.

The museum contests a ministry order to transfer three nearby land parcels to the Arkhangelskoye Quartering Unit.

The motion to grant interim relief was filed under the museum's lawsuit. However, the court has ruled that there are no grounds for granting interim relief.

Previously, the defendant said one land plot had been sold at an auction to Gradostroy.

The court has involved the Defense Ministry's Central Territorial Department of Property Relations in the hearing, as the Arkhangelskoye Quartering Unit is its affiliate.

The estate composes a historical palace and park established in the late 18th century near Moscow. Renowned collector and art lover Prince Nikolay Yusupov bought Arkhangelskoye in 1810.
