Andr_1_1.jpgUNESCO did not add St. Cyril’s and Andrew’s churches of Ukraine to the World Heritage List. According to the press secretary of UNESCO Sue Williams, Ukraine did not give enough materials to the committee. “Thus, we gave the representatives from Ukraine more time to prepare the materials,” she added.

As informs the website Svidomo, the current session of UNESCO will also review the question of transferring St. Sophia Cathedral to the so-called “blacklist” – a list of properties that are in danger.

This problem was brought to attention after activists against construction in the historic part of Kyiv appealed to UNESCO with a letter describing the chaotic and unlawful construction in the buffer zone of the monuments.

“If Ukraine ends up on the ‘blacklist,’ then it will join with such countries as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, Yemen, Congo, and other countries of the world that could not save their natural and historic monuments from ruination,” the message states.

      Навiть при януковичi вiдмовлялися прийняти цей закон, а тут такий позор для краiни християнського минулого. Не богобоязненi люди у владi . Не бояться кари Бога.

      Треба було дві черги в голову. :) Сподіваюсь цей піп набалакає на кримінальну справу і проведе залишок своїх років на нарах.
