The Crimean museums have begun the process of appealing the decision of District administrative court of Amsterdam on the return of the exhibits to Crimean museums from the collection of “Crimea – Golden island in the Black sea” (the so-called “Scythian gold”) in Ukraine. About this on his page in Facebook said the first Deputy Minister of information policy Emine dzheppar.
“Our defenders got the news from the bailiff of intent of the Crimean museums to appeal. Procedurally they (museums) have a few weeks to “make” all their “Fe” regarding the decision of the first court. It actually means the beginning of a process of appeal against the decision of the district court and, accordingly, the artifacts will remain in storage, Allard Pierson Museum,” wrote Dzheppar.
As reported, the Scythian gold in the court’s decision will not get the Russian invaders – the District court of Amsterdam has decided not to return the rarities in the occupied Crimea, and that means that gold will get to Ukraine.
It is reported that the court made the decision based on the UNESCO Convention. It States that works of art should be returned to a sovereign state that has provided for their temporary exhibition.
As provided for the exhibition the gold of the Ukraine, then and belong to it will be Kiev, not Russian invaders in the Crimea.
We will remind, in February 2014 the collection of Scythian gold was removed to Amsterdam to participate in the exhibition “Crimea: gold and secrets of the Black sea” in the Allard Pierson Museum.
The exhibition consists of collections of five museums, one of which is located in Kiev and four in Crimea. Among the 500 exhibits – artifacts from Scythian gold, a ceremonial helmet, precious stones, and swords of the ancient Greeks and Scythians.
