MOSCOW, August 17. /TASS/. Mikhail Piotrovsky, the head of the Russian Museums Union, on Monday condemned last week’s attack on an art exhibition in central Moscow.
On Friday, members of Bozhya Volya (God's Will), an ultra-conservative movement, vandalized "The Sculptures We Don't See" exhibition at the Manezh exposition center close to Red Square, claiming that the exhibits were offensive to religious feelings.
"The Russian Museum Union regards the actions of strange activists with hallucinogenic nicknames as a real display of blasphemy and religious offence," Piotrovsky said referring to the Bozhya Volya leader, Dmitry Tsorionov, widely known as "Enteo".
Piotrovsky, the director of the St. Petersburg-based State Hermitage Museum, said that such attacks hampered the work aimed to fin harmony between the church and museums.
