UNESCO has called for greater protection for Ukraine's cultural heritage sites amid Russia's brutal, unprovoked invasion. "We must safeguard the cultural heritage in Ukraine, as a testimony of the past but also as a catalyst for peace and cohesion for the future, which the international community has a duty to protect and preserve," UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said in a statement on March 8. Since the start of the Russian invasion last week, UNESCO has been in constant contact with Ukrainian institutions to assess the situation and strengthen the protection of cultural heritage sites. "The first challenge is to mark cultural heritage sites and monuments and recall their special status as protected areas under international law," Azoulay said. With the help of satellite images, UNESCO is attempting to monitor the damage inflicted by Russia's invasion on cultural heritage sites in Ukraine.

I've been reading about some of the Trypillian sites, oldest proto civilization found so far in Europe. It would be a shame to see those excavations bombed. One is very near Kyiv.
