Russia's President Vladimir Putin (R) and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel speak as they attend a press conference during 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.
