MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) — A total of 56 pictures by prominent Russian artists which had earlier been kept in different administrative buildings have been brought to the Cultural Center of the Russian Armed Forces on the instructions of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Chief of the Cultural Center Vasily Mazurenko told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The famous pictures, including masterpieces by Ivan Aivazovsky, Isaak Levitan, Ivan Shishkin, Alexei Savrasov and other prominent Russian artists were brought in special vehicles to the Cultural Center of the Armed Forces on November 13 on the instructions of Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu, Mazurenko reported.
All the workers of the Cultural Center happy to have the pictures back took part in unloading the canvasses which they carefully removed from the vehicles. At 9. 00 pm Moscow time an expert commission confirmed both the number and authenticity of the returned pictures which afterwards were placed into a special depository, Mazurenko said. Until the weekend all the pictures will be put back in their places in a gallery of the historical-memorial hall of the Cultural Center, and the pictures will be available for all the visitors to see, Mazurenko said.
