In Crimea, they expressed the hope that the Scythian gold will return to the museums of the peninsula
permanent representative Crimea Georgy Muradov told in an interview with TASS about the development of the macroregion, economic and cultural events on the peninsula. In particular, the politician said that the Scythian gold has not yet been returned to the Crimean museums.
It is noted that the journalists of the agency asked the permanent representative a question about the future fate of the Scythian gold.
Muradov explained that at present the collection of Scythian gold is located in the Netherlands. The authorities of the country decided to transfer the exhibits to Kyiv, but, against the backdrop of the international agenda, they are afraid to send them, the permanent representative specified.
In his opinion, after the special operation, the issue of gold will be resolved.
The permanent representative believes that the new Ukrainian government will be loyal to Moscow. Accordingly, Kyiv, having received a collection from the Netherlands, will return the exhibits to the Crimean museums.
Recall that “Scythian gold” is a large collection of items made of precious metal, discovered by archaeologists in the Northern Black Sea region. They were presented in six Crimean museums.
With the assistance of the authorities of Ukraine, the University of Amsterdam, the exhibits were sent to the Allard Pearson Archaeological Museum. After the annexation of the peninsula to the Russian Federation, the collection became the object of litigation between Kiev, Crimea and a cultural institution.
