Japan to provide support to UNESCO’s activities to protect cultural property in Ukraine

UNESCO has been delivering emergency support to people across Ukraine in its fields of competencies. Japan has already pledged to provide financial contribution to support UNESCO’s efforts to help media professionals in Ukraine. This time, in order to meet additional urgent needs, Japan has decided to contribute US$ 500,000 for UNESCO’s activities to protect cultural properties in Ukraine.
Currently, UNESCO monitors damages to 24 cultural properties (including World Heritage properties, museums and cultural institutions) through UNITAR (United Nations Institute for Training and Research) satellite imagery, but with Japan’s additional funding, UNESCO will be able to monitor 50 additional sites for a total period of 6 months.
