War Destroying Ukraine’s Cultural Heritage at Scale ‘Not Seen Since WWII’ – by By Aristos Georgiou

“The first ground-based survey of Ukraine’s historical landscape since Russia’s full-scale invasion of the country in February 2022 has highlighted the true extent of the destruction caused by the ongoing war, which has been difficult to ascertain.

In addition to the tragic loss of life and the displacement of many Ukrainians, the conflict has resulted in thousands of cultural heritage sites—including many that were unrecorded—being damaged or destroyed.

Trying to understand how the war is decimating Ukrainian cultural heritage requires an assessment from the ground rather than using drones or satellites.” .

In the frames of these interviews, the peculiarities of conducting monitoring works at the sites of the liberated territories of Kyiv and Chernihiv regions in the spring – autumn of 2023 were highlighted.
