Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's statements on the return of the Russian-occupied Crimea may have "negative consequences" the Kremlin spokesperson claimed. 

Zelensky on Tuesday praised the Amsterdam court decision to return Scythian gold to Ukraine and said: "We always regain what is ours. After the 'Scythian gold,' we will return Crimea."

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov commenting on the words of Zelensky, said that this is nothing more than a "statement of territorial claims" to the Russian Federation.

“The words about the return of Crimea is currently nothing more than a statement about territorial claims to the Russian Federation. Such statements may have negative consequences,” Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

As reported, the Amsterdam Court of Appeals has ruled to return the Scythian gold collection borrowed for an exhibition by a Dutch museum from Crimea to Ukraine on October 26, 2021.
