Russia is trying to "reregister" the Tauric Chersonesos in the UNESCO list to its own name
This was stated at the All-Ukrainian forum "Ukraine 30. Image of Ukraine" by Deputy Minister of Culture and Information Policy Svitlana Fomenko, Ukrinform reports.
"One of our UNESCO World Heritage Sites is now located in the occupied territory of Crimea. This Is Tauric Chersonesos. The importance of having objects in UNESCO can even be traced back to the case of the Russian Federation, which constantly makes attempts to nominate and rename this object as the property of the Russian Federation. That is, the very presence in the UNESCO list from a particular state and the Binding of each object from a particular state is already a hundred points for our image," Fomenko said.
She stressed that UNESCO is the most authoritative, most recognized institution. This is a quality mark, and if an object is included in the UNESCO list, then it is an object that deserves the protection of the entire world community.
At the same time, Fomenko noted that the presence in the UNESCO list means the state's obligation to protect monuments.
