The director of the reserve, Oleh Pohorilets, told an Ukrinform correspondent.
"We have repaired all the damage that was discovered during the inspection immediately after the explosion, i.e. broken windows, broken doors, window panes, and a torn roof. We did everything with our own hands with the help of our friends and volunteers, as well as thanks to the support of the Western Ukrainian Union of Museums and the ALIPH Foundation (International Alliance for the Protection of Cultural Heritage in Conflict Areas ALIPH Foundation - ed.)," Pohorilets said.
According to him, in case of such situations, an additional roof is currently being installed under the main roof in the reserve. It will protect against water ingress into the premises where exhibits and collections are located if the main roof is damaged.
Pohorilets added that the reserve now needs film, wooden slats, and OSB boards the most, as it needs to cover large areas. Philanthropists are providing this, and the director of the reserve hopes for their support in the future.
