Four Crimean museums have filed a lawsuit in Amsterdam demanding a return of the Scythian gold collection to Crimea.
This comes as the Netherland refused to recognize Crimea’s joining Russia.
A collection of more than 2,000 unique exhibits was put on view in Amsterdam early in February 2014, before Crimean annexation. The collection of Scythian gold has been claimed by both Ukraine and Russia.
The exhibition includes what the museum says are ‘spectacular archaeological finds’, including gold items, a scabbard and a ceremonial helmet, and countless precious gems.
Exhibits of the Kiev Museum which were also on view in the Dutch capital were returned to Ukraine in September.
