The document said that it had studied the legislation and international treaties under which the “Crimea: Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea” exhibition had been put on view in Amsterdam.
However, the museum is still undecided whether the exhibits should return to Kiev or Crimea. “Until recently, the museum has failed to pass any decision or meet the demands of either of the sides (Ukrainian or Crimean - ITAR-TASS).
“Therefore, the Allard Pierson Museum decided not to pass any decisions with regards to whom it should hand over the exhibits,” the press release said.
The Museum is ready to obey any ruling made by a qualified judge or an agreement reached by the parties. But for the moment, the Scythian gold will remain in the Netherlands.
