Artifacts from four Crimean museums presented at the exhibition "Crimea: Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea" in Amsterdam have returned to Ukraine. This was reported by the National Museum of History of Ukraine.
"Scythian Gold" was returned after ten years of litigation in the Netherlands.
The Allard Pearson Museum transferred the exhibits to the National Museum of History of Ukraine, where they will be kept until the deoccupation of Crimea.
Experts are currently examining the condition of these items. We are talking about 565 items, including ancient sculptures, Scythian and Sarmatian jewelry, Chinese lacquer boxes that are two thousand years old.
General Director of the National Museum of History of Ukraine Fedir Androshchuk said: "During the legal disputes, our museum was designated as a place of storage for the collections of Crimean museums. This means that the museum will make every effort to preserve them and to ensure that citizens and guests of Ukraine can see them."
