Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s statements about his intention to “return” Crimea are territorial claims against Russia. This opinion was expressed by the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov, reports TASS.
A Kremlin spokesman noted that such statements could have negative consequences.
The day before, a court in Amsterdam decided to transfer the collection of Scythian gold to Ukraine. After that, Zelensky promised to return Crimea, stressing that Kiev always returns its own.
According to Andrey Malgin, director of the Central Museum of Tavrida, the transfer of exhibits to the Ukrainian side is a gross disregard for the interests of the residents of Crimea. In turn, Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, said that Moscow would look for opportunities to challenge this court decision.
