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.
The Committee for Ukrainian Museums – founded to help Ukrainian cultural institutions in the face of Russian aggression – invites all, to support the cause and raise funds for the acquisition of electronic equipment that will help Ukrainian museums digitalize their collections.
In order to prevent catastrophe when cultural property is being destroyed we have established The Committee for Ukrainian Museums (Komitet Pomocy Muzeom Ukrainy) to support our colleagues in Ukraine, says Jan Ołdakowski, Director of the Warsaw Rising Museum (PAP). “Our joint effort to preserve the cultural and national heritage of Ukraine is our joint struggle”, he adds.
