Russia will soon return 134 books displaced from the Sarospatak college library in Hungary to the USSR after WWII
Russia will soon return 134 books displaced from the Sarospatak college library in Hungary to the USSR after WWII, Deputy Culture and Mass Communication Minister Leonid Nadirov said at a news briefing Monday. "The process of handing over the 134 books kept in Nizhny Novgorod to Hungary has lasted a long time," Nadirov said. "These are Calvinist (Protestant) books in the old German and Hungarian languages that Hungarians view as spiritual heritage." The books' return complies with the law on displaced treasures, he said. The State Duma, parliament's lower house, will consider a draft law allowing Russia to return the books to Hungary June 28, Nadirov said. Hungary adopted a similar law on displaced treasures on April 18. According to the law, "Hungary will return to Russia treasures that were displaced from the USSR during WWII if these treasures are found on Hungarian territory." No Russian cultural treasures have been found in Hungary thus far, Nadirov said
