The occupation authorities of Crimea have filed a complaint against the decision of the Amsterdam Court to return a collection of Scythian gold to Ukraine. This was stated by the "Minister of Culture" of the occupied Crimea, Arina Novoselskaya.

"The appeal was filed,” she said and expressed hope that "correct political decision” would be taken.

As it was reported earlier, the District Court of Amsterdam decided to return collection of Scythian gold to Ukraine. It had been exported to the exhibition before the Russian Federation annexed the Crimea. The court ruled that the Crimea is not a sovereign state and cannot claim the treasure as cultural heritage.

Scythian gold remains in the Netherlands since February 2014 and was brought to the exhibition "Crimea - the golden island in the Black Sea." By the end of February 2014 the Crimea was annexed by Russia, and the Dutch couldn’t decide where to return Scythian gold.
