The Court of Appeal of Amsterdam on Tuesday, October 26, ruled in the case about the ownership of the Scythian gold collection, recognizing the right of Ukraine to it.
As the presiding judge Pauline Hofmeyr-Rutten said, the objects in question "are part of Ukraine's cultural heritage" and "should be handed over to the Ukrainian side."
In the Crimea called the court's decision a manifestation of double standards. In this case, the Crimean museums can appeal against the court decision.
Recall, in early 2014, the collection of Scythian gold was transferred for the exhibition in the Allard Pearson Museum in Amsterdam. At the time of the exhibition, Crimea was invaded by Russian troops. Since then, the rights to Scythian gold have been challenged in court.
It is a collection of unique archaeological treasures: weapons, precious stones, valuable Chinese lacquer boxes, Scythian gold jewelry. One of the precious exhibits is an ancient Scythian helmet, which is over 2.4 thousand years old. The value of the entire exposition is estimated over a million euros.
