On the eve of the media remembered about the Scythian gold from the Crimean museums, still «languishing» in Amsterdam. Moreover, by a court decision, the entire unique collection of Crimean museums can be transferred to Ukraine. Everyone is convinced that this is unfair. Scythian gold must be returned to the Crimea. This, by the way, is also the position of the Kremlin.
An interesting comment was made by Alexander Molokhov, Deputy Head of the Working Group on International Legal Issues at the Permanent Mission of Crimea to the President of the Russian Federation. On Wednesday, he told TASS that investigators of the Investigative Committee of Russia are conducting a pre-investigation check into the theft of the Scythian gold collection. The purpose of the audit is to establish what was done to return the valuables, whether these measures were sufficient. According to Molokhov, in the 2014 year, former officials of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and their colleagues in Crimea signed documents according to which the Scythian gold was not transferred to the museum fund of the Russian Federation in a timely manner.
This phrase caused some «internal scandal», in particular, the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Crimea under the President of the Russian Federation issued an official notice. We quote it in full (and are perplexed):
In connection with the materials published in some media from 19.01. on the fate of the collection of «Scythian gold» illegally held in the Netherlands, with reference to the opinion of the «deputy head of the working group on international Legal Affairs at the Permanent Mission of Crimea under the President of the Russian Federation Alexander Molokhov” we bring to the attention of the public and the media that A.V. Molokhov is not authorized to express the official position of the Permanent Mission or other state bodies of the Republic of Crimea.
Issues falling within the competence of the Working Group on International Legal Issues under the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Crimea under the President of the Russian Federation, which is a consultative public body, in accordance with the Regulations on the working group, are authorized to cover in the media only the head of the Working Group Anatoly Alexandrovich Vlasov .
We emphasize that A.V. Molokhov speaks and expresses his personal opinion in the media either as a private person or as a practicing lawyer.
We ask the media to consider the above information in their future work.
Let’s leave the dispute on the conscience of its participants… But here’s what’s interesting — January is the deadline for filing a cassation appeal against the decision of the Amsterdam court to transfer the collection of Scythian gold to Ukraine. It has not been filed yet.
Will we make it to the «last car»? A complaint against the court decision on the transfer of Scythian gold to Ukraine is being prepared, the appeal will be filed before January. Andrey Malgin, director of the Crimean Central Museum of Taurida, told about this on Thursday, 20 January.
According to my information, we will be in time. We will submit until January. The complaint is being prepared , — said Malygin RIA Novosti .
Probably, after all, it is not disputes and not the right to comment in this story that are important, but the skill of lawyers and the evidence base for Scythian gold.
