Zelensky Condemns Russian Attacks on Cultural Monuments and Institutions

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned Russian attacks on cultural monuments and institutions, in an address shared online on May 7.

His comments followed strikes in Odesa which sparked a fire in a residential part of the city, and shelling in Kharkiv which destroyed a museum dedicated to 18th century philosopher and poet Hryhoriy Skovoroda.

“Every day of this war the Russian army does something that is beyond words.” Zelensky said, “as of May 7, the Russian army destroyed or damaged nearly 200 cultural heritage sites.” Credit: Volodymyr Zelensky via Storyful
