Ukraine asks UNESCO to protect cultural heritage sites in Crimea


Ukraine has appealed to UNESCO  to protect cultural heritage sites in Crimea, says Ukraine’s Minister of Culture Yevhen Nyshchuk, as reported by Dzerkalo Tyzhnia, March 24.

“On the territory of Crimea is the Khersones Tavriysky (Ancient City of Tauric Chersonese), which is inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List and which belongs to the Ukrainian state. We have been given the mission to protect it. However, since we no longer have physical access to the site in order to protect all the rarities and exhibits located there, which are priceless not only for Ukraine but also for the entire world, we appeal to UNESCO to help us,” he said.

According to Nyshchuk, Ukrainian scientists have lost all access to cultural sites after the military occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation.

Chersonese became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013.
