"A Dutch court ruled Wednesday that priceless Crimean art treasures loaned to an Amsterdam museum shortly before [Crimeans voted to secede from Ukraine] in 2014 should go back [sic] to Ukraine. Four Crimean museums launched a joint legal bid in November 2014 to force the Allard Pierson Museum to return the historic collection of archaeological artefacts, displayed in an exhibition titled: 'The Crimea: Gold and Secrets from the Black Sea.' ... 'The claim by Crimean museums that the artefacts are Crimean heritage, or belong to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was not accepted by the judges, because neither are sovereign states,' the Amsterdam regional court added."
