We managed to verify 290 damages to various objects across the country, but this is not an exhaustive list – many more cases have not been documented," UNESCO Representative to Ukraine Chiara Bardeschi said during the forum dedicated to the Ukrainian cultural heritage, an Ukrinform correspondent reports. As Bardeschi emphasized, access to culture is a right that belongs to everyone and imposes an obligation to pass it on to future generations because cultural assets can disappear.
