Ukraine is ready to pay EUR 100,000 to the Netherlands for the storage and transportation to Kyiv of the Crimean museum pieces.

Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko has announced this to journalists, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Ukraine has to pay over EUR 100,000 by court order.

Petrenko calls this decision lawful and corresponding to the world practice.

The minister believes that this award has an utterly important prejudicial significance, as it can be treated as a precedent when examining other Ukraine v Russia disputes at international courts.

Petrenko predicts that the museum collection will be returned to Ukraine before the end of 2017.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the District Court of Amsterdam on Wednesday has ruled to return to Ukraine the Crimean museum pieces kept at the Museum of the Amsterdam University.

First Deputy Minister of Information Policy Emine Japarova said that Ukraine must partly pay for the delivery of the museum pieces from the Netherlands and for their storage.

The object of dispute were 565 museum pieces, provided by the Central Museum of Taurida, the Kerch reserve of history and culture, Chersonesos of Taurida national reserve and the Bakhchisaray reserve of history and culture to Allard Pierson Museum of Archaeology of the Amsterdam University for the display called 'Crimea - a golden island in the Black Sea' from February 6 to May 28, 2014.

Under Ukrainian law, all the provided pieces are part of the Museum Fund of Ukraine.
