  • US returns stolen archival material to Russia

    MOSCOW (AP) — Captivated by art and history as a youth, Vladimir Feinberg began stealing items from the Hermitage Museum three decades ago and later from the Russian national archives. On Thursday, some of them found their way back to Russia after U.S. investigators tracked them down and returned them to Russia.

    Four documents spirited away by Feinberg were among 28 historically significant pieces ranging from military records to architectural drawings present to Russia in a ceremony at the U.S. ambassador's residence.

    Feinberg, who now lives in Israel, is believed to have stolen some $24 million worth of works.

      I just wonder when Americans will stop using 1950's language when speaking about Russia. This sort of answers the question who's still living in the Cold War and who's not

          Funny how the Russians have never returned any of the millions of dollars worth of art that they blundered during and after WW2.
          My worst jump story:
          My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
          As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
          No lie.

                    Instead of relying on Wikipedia, why don't you explain the 'phenomenon' yourself?

                    There is a difference, but then again there really isn't.

                    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                      Easily: Soviet Union and Russia are different countries. Russia was only one part of the Soviet Union. Russian made up only a part of Soviet population. The leader of the Soviet Union in 1945 was ethnic Georgian born in Georgia. The use of "Russia" and "Russian" when talking about Soviet government, Soviet authorities, Soviet policy is simply ignorant. It's the same as calling the United Kingdom "England".

                        Thanks and we all know this. Get over it.

                            Russia was the majority of the land mass of the Soviet Union, the capitol was Russia, and many of the 'parts' of the Soviet Union were part of Russia before 1917, Lenin and the Communists.

                            And if you take a look at what the British referred to the UK during the Napoleonic period (when Wales, Scotland, and Ireland were part of the country) they referred to it as England.

                            And no, it isn't ignorant, it's realistic. Commissars replaced the Tsars and the people were still treated like cattle.

                            There just isn't that much difference. And Russia was still called Russia during and after the Revolution. The grandiose title of Soviet Union came later.

                              Yes, "Russian Socialist Republic", a quite different body of territory. Which became only one of constituent parts of the Soviet Union in 1922 and which is an ancestor of the present Russian Federation. RF took over Soviet international obligations and participation in international organizations, in other respects it is not different from other post-Soviet states.
                              Russia was the majority of the land mass of the Soviet Union, the capitol was Russia
                              Yes, England is the largest part of UK, the capital is in England etc. What's from that?
