A Giuseppe Guarneri violin was stolen from a museum in Buryatia
A Giuseppe Guarneri violin was stolen from a museum in Buryatia where the alarm system was switched off for unpaid electricity bills, police said on Friday specifying the event took place on Wednesday night. Two masked men tied the guard of the Decembrists’ museum in the settlement of Novoseleginsk and, besides the violin, stole a rare book from Bestuzhev brothers’ library, and a matrix of an ancient Buddhist text. This is the second violin theft from the museum in five years. Last time a violin made in 1736 was stolen together with a collection of ancient knives from the mansion where brothers Mikhail and Nikolai Bestuzhev lived in exile. The museum in Novoseleginsk is a major memorial to the Decembrists, some of who were prominent members of the Russian aristocracy and were exiled to Siberia after a revolt in December 1825 against the Tsar
