Russian aggression towards Ukraine poses a threat to the century-old cultural heritage of the country. The most valuable objects of Ukrainian culture could be destroyed. Polish people understand well what the extermination of cultural assets entails – destruction of museum collections, library resources and archival material.
Russian aggression against Ukraine has already led to countless crimes and caused victims and suffering. In such circumstances, people are most important. The people facing barbarous bombing and the soldiers fighting against the aggressor. Today the Ukrainians pay with their lives to defend their Homeland. However, any war leads also to irreparable loss of cultural and national heritage.
