In Crimea, they said that Amsterdam does not report on the state of Scythian gold
Director of the Umrikhin Museum: Amsterdam refused to provide information on the state of Scythian gold
The Allard Pearson Museum in Amsterdam refused to provide information on the state of the Scythian gold collection, Tatyana Umrikhina, director of the East Crimean Historical and Cultural Museum, told RIA Novosti.
The Amsterdam Court of Appeal in October ruled that the Scythian gold should be transferred to Ukraine, the decision can be appealed to the Supreme Court of the Netherlands. A collection of Scythian gold from four Crimean museums, about 2 thousand artifacts, was taken for an exhibition at the Allard Pearson Museum in Amsterdam in early February 2014 – even before Crimea was reunited with Russia.
“They do not respond to our letters about the condition, about demands for restoration, in order to admit the restorers. All this is very strange,” Umrikhina told RIA Novosti.
According to her, the issue with the Crimean collection of Scythian gold lies not in the plane of international law, but in politics. “It always gives bad results,” said the director of the museum.
