Hermitage Art Just “Walked Out The Door”

A Russian court hears about how an Hermitage employee and her husband stole 77 pieces of art from the museum and sold them to buy medicine. “According to prosecutors, the couple made off with icons, a Swiss pocket watch, and a gold-encrusted saltcellar. Mrs Zavadskaya, who died in 2005, simply walked out of the staff exit, apparently unchallenged by security guards.”
