MOSCOW, August 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Culture Ministry will not interfere in the situation with the Scythian gold, as all the issues must be settled on the inter-museum level, the Russian culture minister's advisor Kirill Rybak told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.
According to some media reports, the museum in the Netherlands, where Scythian gold from Crimean museums is exhibited, does not intend so far to hand over the exhibits to Ukraine or Crimea until a judge takes a decision or the parties come to an agreement.
"The ministry is watching the situation over the exhibition 'Crimea the Golden Island in the Black Sea'. We are monitoring the news," he said. "However, all the issues must be settled only on the inter-museum level."
There are museums that have sent exhibits, and there are museums that have received them. "They have definite agreements. In our view, they must be met," the official said.
The ministry knows that the exhibition is prolonged until the end of August. "As far as we know, there are no reasons for anxiety. Normal talks are going on," he added.
The exhibition "Crimea: Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea" was opened in the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam in February 2014 and will be closed on August 31. There are a total of more than 550 items from one Kiev and four Crimean museums, including precious metal jewelry, arms and household ware that showcase the peninsula's rich history. The question where to return the exhibits arose when Crimea joined Russia.
