Three cars with Russian paintings from exhibitions in Italy and Japan, previously detained in Finland, crossed the border of the Russian Federation. They are currently heading to St. Petersburg and Moscow.

According to the information of the Ministry of Culture of Russia, one car will bring to the northern capital exhibits belonging to the State Hermitage, the Pavlovsk, Gatchina and Tsarskoye Selo museum-reserves. These paintings are returning from an exhibition in Italy.

Two other cars will deliver exhibits to Moscow museums. Paintings from the second Italian exhibition returned to the State Tretyakov Gallery and the State Museum of Oriental Art, and paintings returned to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts from an exhibition in Japan.
