Ukraine seeks UNESCO support for post-war cultural renaissance

Nearly $7 billion will be required over the next decade to rebuild the cultural sector in war-ravaged Ukraine, the head of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said during a visit to the country this week.

UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay was in Ukraine to reaffirm support to the population amid the continuing full-scale Russian invasion, which began on 24 February last year.

Director-General @AAzoulay carried out a mission to #Ukraine to reaffirm UNESCO’s support to the people & advance the reconstruction of cultural sector.

President @ZelenskyyUa welcomed the “concrete results” of the emergency measures taken by @UNESCO.
