IVANOVO, August 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Five paintings by classical Russian artist Isaak Levitan estimated to be worth about $2.1 million have been stolen from an art museum in central Russia, the museum's head said on Tuesday.

The thieves smashed a window and broke into the museum located in the ancient town of Plyos on the Volga River where Levitan created some of his landscape masterpieces in the late 19th century.

This is not the first case when paintings were stolen from the Plyos museum. But they were later returned to the museum's collection.
