Ukraine outraged at Taras Shevchenko’s house destruction in Russia’s Orenburg for parking lot construction

Ukraine’s Culture and Foreign Ministries will appeal to the international organizations over the demolition of an architectural monument in the Russian city of Orenburg – the house, where prominent Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko lived in exile, said Deputy Premier and Culture Minister Viacheslav Kyrylenko, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Interfax.

“Today the culture ministry will issue an official statement, besides, together with the foreign ministry we will appeal to the relevant international organizations and UNESCO in order to give the international assessment for the actions of the Russian Federation,” Kyrylenko said at a Cabinet’s meeting on Wednesday.

The minister recalled that Shevchenko lived in the ruined house while in exile that the Russian tsar sentenced him to. “Despite the house in Orenburg is the architectural monument of the national importance and has an appropriate protected registration number, it was completely destroyed and an infrastructure facility was built on its site, namely parking lot for a private bank. This is a violation of not only the Russian domestic law, but of all international laws,” the minister stressed.
