In Ukraine, discovered a batch of old paintings
In Ukraine, discovered a batch of old paintings stolen six months ago in Italy. Examination confirmed: it is original, including the masterpieces of Rubens and other old masters. President Poroshenko the discovery of the paintings was explained by the fact that Ukraine is a European state, which almost won the contraband.

The Ukrainian leader did not remember about the scandal with the smuggling of cigarettes in the Carpathians and on the illegal export of amber in Rivne region. Not essential Ukrainian border Express their amazement, freeing from cellophane and rags of cloth, which the whole world was looking for six months. The largest batch of works of art at least 16 million euros found on the damp ground, disguised by grass, some bushes. That's "Madonna with partridges" - the most famous work of Antonio Pisanello. As with the others, this masterpiece does not stand on ceremony - describe and take pictures. Venue - Odessa area, just 1.5 km from the border with Moldova. That's where the smugglers wanted to take pictures, report the guards in front of Petro Poroshenko.

It is reported that the head of state almost personally led the operation. Kept it a closely guarded secret. And now, according to the President, Ukraine has shown the world their loyalty to Western and cultural values. But even in this seemingly purely criminal case, Ukraine has found a place for petty political pins. Officials from the Ukrainian border services albeit tentatively, with reservations, and without any evidence, but still managed to drag Russia.

The scale of this crime is truly international. Works of the greatest painters such as Rubens, Tintoretto, Karato, Mantegna was stolen back in November from Verona Castelvecchio Museum. The masked bandits had no difficulty reaching the exhibition halls, tied up the only guard, quietly removed the cloth and disappeared. The investigation revealed that the attackers bribed a guard. Relatively quickly, the criminals managed to find 7 people, among whom only two Italians detained in Verona, five in custody in Moldova, a defendant is at large under recognizance not to leave. Until recently remained a mystery only one thing: where to hide the stolen masterpieces.
