About it told journalists the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov, reports TASS.

“We fight for the right of Crimea to claim the exhibits will not leave, will continue together with the Ministry of foreign Affairs, the Ministry of culture of the Russian Federation. Position legal built, how it will develop — it’s hard to say. We will do everything possible,” he said.
