UNESCO has approved a decision that opens up the possibility of sending a monitoring mission and struggling for the protection of cultural monuments in Crimea, including the Bakhchisaray Palace.

"UNESCO’s Executive Board adopted an important decision on Crimea. It actually opens up the possibility of sending a monitoring mission and struggling for educational rights, science, protection of cultural monuments in Crimea, including the Bakhchisaray Palace. We will not allow the occupation authorities plundering and destroying the Ukrainian property,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin wrote on Twitter.

As reported, during the so-called “restoration” of the Bakhchisaray Palace in the occupied Crimea, the de facto authorities destroyed the monument, which had to be listed as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2014.

The Bakhchisaray Palace is the historical and cultural monument of universal significance, the only example of the Crimean Tatar palace architecture in the world. The palace is part of the Bakhchisaray Historical and Cultural Reserve.
