More than 100 cases of damage to heritage sites by Russians confirmed
According to the Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko, it is still very difficult to assess the total damage caused by Russian forces due to the lack of full access to information in the temporarily uncontrolled territories.
“The Russian occupiers have created a new challenge for the Great Restoration program. But due to the reparations collected from them (and it can’t be otherwise) and with the international support (which we continue to enlist) — we will do everything possible to restore our cultural heritage,” Tkachenko assured. The minister asked the witnesses to send photo and video evidence of war crimes against humanity and cultural heritage sites, committed by the Russian army, via the following link culturecrimes.mkip.gov.ua. These materials will be used as evidence for criminal proceedings against Russian criminals.
