This is the fourth episode of the documentary narrative podcast 'Why Do They Steal?'. 

In this episode, we uncover the story of historical valuables from the Crimean peninsula, which became stuck in the Netherlands due to the russian occupation.

Joining us are lawyers, historians, and museum workers, as we revisit the details of the "Scythian gold" case, which gained global attention. We'll discuss firsthand pieces of evidence related to the case that led to the return of treasures to Ukraine. Furthermore, we'll explain why the failure for russia is more than just losing valuable items.
