Russia's President Vladimir Putin (R) and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel attend an International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg, on June 21, 2013. Putin and Merkel announced today that they would both attend the opening of a Saint Petersburg exhibition including treasures taken by the Red Army at the end of World War II. German officials had said earlier their visit to the "Bronze Age of Europe -- Europe Without Borders" exhibition at the Hermitage museum had been scrapped due to what German media said was a wrangle over the future of the so-called trophy art.
