His assessment of the situation was made by the specialists of the Ministry of culture.
a Meeting of representatives of public organizations and the Ministry of culture took place in the 13th pavilion, where in the spring moved to the Museum of the Roerichs. Social activists are convinced that many Museum standards of exhibition of masterpieces — broken.

One of the main complaints members of the public — that’s the wall. It is punctuated by a huge window openings, covered with a thin layer of drywall. And priceless paintings hanging as if on glass. But even more dangerous temperature and humidity conditions. Battery, the activists claim persecute the scalding air directly into the priceless canvases.

Temperatureatura in the room where hang pictures, +18°. Humidity about 40%. Closed batteries reflective screens.
“It’s collecting the heat screen from a battery, which, when the hot air rises, takes him aside, that was not a direct ascent air painting”, — said Dmitry Antonov, head of the state research Institute of restoration.
“this is actually the most common metal corners and window ledges. This is not the screen, it’s not Museum equipment. We want to know where there is a fire safety system? And what is it — water, dry? We can’t see her. There are no vents, no”, — said Olena Yeshchenko, the representative of public organization.
