UNESCO chief promises help to rebuild Ukrainian cultural sites destroyed by Russian attacks

The director general of Unesco has pledged to help rebuild Ukraine’s shattered culture sector after travelling to the war-torn country earlier this week. During her visit, Audrey Azoulay told the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky that “in order to rebuild but also to redress the situation, it will be necessary to invest $6.9bn in the cultural sector in Ukraine over the next ten years”, a Unesco statement says.

Azoulay carried out a two-day mission to Ukraine, visiting Kyiv, Chernihiv and Odesa, reaffirming “the organisation's support to the population [as well as] to advance the reconstruction of the country’s cultural sector”.
