The Petersburg Power Museum opened from the middle of August could not work even for two weeks.

      Last Monday, August 26, police officers crashed into the building to withdraw some of the paintings and the cash register, and sealed up the room.

      As the gallery director Alexander Donskoy explained to the journalists, a series of works under the name Governors by the Arkhangelsk artist Konstantin Altunin had been exhibited in the museum. On Monday evening police officers, FSB and prosecutor’s offices, as well as the deputy of the Petersburg Legislative Assembly Vitaly Milonov arrived in the museum. The deputy expressed disgust concerning the exposition and left it. Afterwards the guards withdrew four paintings: a portrait of Putin and Medvedev in underwear, a portrait of the patriarch, Mizulina's Erotic Dreams and Milonov against rainbow background.

      Now the Power Museum, which is keeping most of its exposition - 76 paintings – will be closed.
