A part of collection of golden Scythian items belonging to four Crimean museums, which was exhibited in Amsterdam, will be returned to Kyiv, Ukraine, the other part will stay in the Netherlands, Ukrainian Culture Ministry informed.
“We expect that a part of the collection would arrive to Kiev. If everything is fine, we will make the exhibits public and show them to reporters,” a representative from the ministry’s press-service said.
The rare gold artifacts were sent to the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam in February for an exhibition titled “Crimea: Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea”. The golden items came from five Ukrainian museums, four of which are located in Crimea.
Crimea seceded from Ukraine and was annexed by Russia in March.
Since the Netherlands does not recognize Crimea's unification with Russia, which took place after the exhibition opening, the question arose as to whom the collection should be returned to once the exhibition closes in August.
