United States to allocate $7M for Ukraine Cultural Heritage Response Initiative

On February 23, 2023, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announced that its Ukraine Cultural Heritage Response Initiative will invest $7 million to support Ukrainian efforts to protect its cultural heritage amid Russian armed aggression.

The relevant statement was made on the website of the U.S. Department of State on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Initiative was developed to support Ukraine’s efforts to protect and repair damage to Ukrainian cultural heritage sites and collections, as well as expand and strengthen public-private partnerships with civil society in Ukraine,” the report states.

In cooperation with Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, Ukrainian NGOs, and international partners, the Initiative will give priority to cultural heritage sites and collections directly impacted by Russia’s brutal war in Ukraine.
