To whom thefts from the Hermitage are favourable? 221 unique products of jeweller art were gone from Russian department of the Hermitage. Today two persons are accused of theft. The husband and the son of plundered collection`s owner Larissa Zavadskaja, suddenly deceased. Both of them are detained and are under examination. Nikolay Zavadsky-junior worked in a museum for some years and, under the version of consequence, during his work thefts of silver jeweller masterpieces were made. That is remarkable, losses have stopped after his dismissal. It would seem, all is clear. But could one family without assistants and intermediaries make this scale swindle?
There is an opinion, that it was the order of an antiquarian mafia. Many experts refer in opinion, that at all their external sensational nature, thefts in one of the main museums of Russia are frivolous. Estimate: the volume of thefts for 5 years has not exceeded 130 million roubles. At the same time in Petersburg was gone a picture by Mark Shagal, at once estimated on one of the western auctions in half a million dollars! From a hall of impressionists of the same Hermitage thieves have born a picture by Jean-Leon Zheroma «Pool in the Harem» in insurance cost in one million dollars. It means, that a sensation around of present theft from the Hermitage is artificial.
To whom is it favourable? Here are some of versions. The purpose – is to clean the person, who is stirring to their profitable “business”. To put in Piotrovsky’s armchair the person which will sharply raise financial turns of “business”. Or the foes-careerists of mister Piotrovsky wish to clean the head of one of the basic museums of the country. And to borrow its throne (by the way – the highest in the museum world).
