In this photo taken on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2012, artist Inna Shmelyova shows a booklet with her works at the opening of an exhibition at Moscow's Manezh hall , Russia. Shmelyova was one of the artists whose works were banned by Soviet leader Nikita Khruschev at a similar 1962 exhibition at the Manezh hall. Fifty years later, some of the banned canvases are on display again at the same Manezh hall _ at a time when critics compare Khruschev's ban to recent charges against the Pussy Riot band and artists whose paintings have angered the Kremlin and Russia’s dominant Orthodox Church.
