Kyiv City State Administration Deputy Chairman Oleksiy Reznikov, a member of the Ukrainian delegation at the 40th session of the World Heritage Committee in Istanbul, said: “It was a very heated discussion. The issue was raised to include Kyiv St. Sophia [Cathedral] and Lavra on the list of sites under threat.
