Details: On June 4, Russian artillery struck the Svyatogorsk Lavra in the Donetsk region again. The fire destroyed the All Saints Hermitage , which was consecrated in 1912.

It was first destroyed during the Soviet era. Later it was rebuilt. And now he was burned by the Russian army.

On June 1, Russian shells exploded in the cells of the Lavra monks. Four people were killed and four others were seriously injured. Svyatogorsk has been under fire since May.

Direct speech: “The occupiers know exactly what object is being shelled. They know that there are no military targets on the territory of the Svyatogorsk Lavra. They know that there are about 300 lay people hiding from hostilities, including 60 children. But still the Russian army is shelling the lavra like the whole of Donbass, like any other territory and any other object of Ukraine that can be reached, they don’t care what to turn into ruins.

On May 31, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine appealed to UNESCO to deprive Russia of membership in the organization. Ukrainian diplomacy is consistently working on this. No country other than Russia has destroyed so many monuments, cultural and social sites in Europe since World War II.

Every church burned by Russia in Ukraine, every school blown up, every destroyed memorial proves that Russia has no place in UNESCO. What can we talk about with a barbarian state, with a terrorist state? About what artillery shells are better to destroy the historical heritage?

We expect a logical and fair response from the UN and UNESCO. It is the United Nations, and its charter does not provide for alliances with terrorists. Russia’s isolation must be complete, it must be held accountable for its crimes. “

  1. I fully support the United Nations expelling Russia from the united Nations, every part of it. They have become terrorist.

  2. The only way to treat barbarians is to treat them with the contempt that they show to the democratic, decent people of the world…strip RuSSia of their affiliation to the United Nations, Their aggression and inhumanity has no place in the organisation.
