Its return was made possible due to the cooperation of Ukrainian diplomats in the US, Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of Ukraine with the FBI and the US Department of Justice.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport announced the end of the process of return of Mykhailo Panin's picture "Clandestine departure of Ivan the Terrible before oprichnina." The U.S. passed it to Ukrainian diplomats in September 2019 as the ministry reported.

The first gift from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport in the new year: the ministry held the return of picture of Mykhailo Panin ‘Clandestine departure of Ivan the Terrible before oprichnina',” the message reads.
