The Pushkin Fine Arts Museum's Impressionist collection arrested in Switzerland would be returned to Russia without consequences
Officials at Russia's cultural heritage protection agency said Wednesday that the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum's Impressionist collection arrested in Switzerland would be returned to Russia without consequences. "We will face no consequences, I think, as there are relevant protection guarantees against claims from third entities," said Anatoly Vilkov, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Media Law Compliance Control and Cultural Heritage Protection. Customs authorities in Switzerland have arrested several trucks carrying 55 paintings worth about $1 billion by famous French artists, including Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Van Gogh, at the request of Swiss import-export company Noga. The arrest is a new twist in a decade-long dispute between Noga and the Russian government over contractual obligations.
