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.

      The leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church unfortunately are ignorant self-righteous medieval thinkers.

      Автор цієї інформації мав би більш досконало вивчити озвучений документ, якщо в нього, звичайно, була така можливість, і тоді б він побачив би справжній його номер, бо № 102 - це зовсім інше, але не

      Отойдите от Православной Русской Цивилизации поганые раскольники и лжепатриархи и обамо-меркельские каиниты, неужто забыли, что ПОКРОВ БОГОРОДИЦЫ НАД РУСЬЮ и где наполеоны и гитлеры обитают.
