"April 30 (UPI) -- Russian forces stormed the Melitopol Museum of Local History and stole rare Scythian gold artifacts, according to officials in Ukraine."
"'The orcs [Russians' have taken hold of our Scythian gold,' Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov said, according to Ukrinform -- the nation's information and news agency."
Also according to Ivan: "'This is one of the largest and most expensive collections in Ukraine, and today we don't know where they took it, whether it was hidden or stolen. We don't know about its fate, but of course this gold has been stolen from our community, and I hope that we will be able to get it back.'"
