Ancient Crimean gold caught in legal limbo

Dutch museum faces dilemma whether to return artifacts to Ukraine or Russia. Scythian gold and other rare artefacts from Crimea on loan to an Amsterdam museum are in legal limbo after Russia’s annexation of the peninsula. The archaeological museum of the University of Amsterdam has asked the Dutch ministry of foreign affairs for advice and is consulting lawyers about the artifacts, which were due to return to Ukraine when a touring exhibition now at the Allard Pierson Museum closes.
